In the very simplest of explanations, with the cloud your data and applications reside on one or more company’s computers, and you may or may not have to pay a subscription service to access your data or applications via the web. Cloud companies are generally referred to as “providers.”
“Cloud Services” are offered by companies that run their applications (such as Microsoft Office, Intuit QuickBooks, Neat Receipt Scanning) from the web; this means you do not install these apps on your laptop or desktop but you instead access them by signing on through the internet with a userID and password. Cloud Services also include data storage, where you can store your photos, video and data files with these companies with the promise of security, backup and retrieval of your precious files.
Why would you use cloud services? There are several advantages, like the fact that you do not have to install this software on your computer nor do you have to buy upgrades because the provider should be keeping their applications at the latest versions. It also makes it very easy to share photos, video and data with coworkers, friends & family. Should your computer’s hard drive crash, your data is safe because it resides on your provider’s computers (also called “servers”).
There are also disadvantages to cloud services. Because the application and your data is stored in the cloud provider’s environment, the provider may have legal right and access to your data. There are new reports nearly every week of servers being “hacked” by intruders which basically means your data is stolen by people who intend to do harm. Cloud services may be free or low cost today, but these providers exist to make a buck, so one day those subscription fees will rise or you will be annoyed by advertisements that cannot be bypassed. You are also at the mercy of the provider’s upgrades & updates so expect the look and feel of your application to change often.
The bottom line: if you use cloud services to store your video and data files, you should continue to maintain your own backup on a hard drive or DVD. Cloud service providers can go out of business and if they do, your data could be sold to the highest bidder, or even worse, lost when they shut off their servers.
Fact: Videotape will begin to significantly degrade and lose picture quality in as little as twelve years.
Fact: Images on DVD & Blu-ray discs last up to 100 years, ten times longer than videotape.
Fact: External hard drives fail. Most people do not back-up their external drives, so when these drives crash, the photos and videos can be lost forever.
Fact: DVD and Blu-ray discs stored in a safe deposit or fire box offer the ultimate production of your memories.
Fact: While cloud services offer easy of sharing and backup services, providers can go out of business. Keeping your own backup, on DVD or hard drive, provides ultimate protection of your memories.
Fact: There are film transfer companies that still project your film against a wall and capture it with a video camera. This will causing flickering, color and brightness loss. Call before you take your film anywhere, speak to the person who will perform the transfer and ask questions!

"Six stars out of five! After my first phone conversation with Donna, I knew I had finally found the right business! For over a year, I had toyed with the idea of digitizing 50 years of home movies (reel to reel, camcorder, VHS) but feared losing or damaging the originals. Donna patiently and cheerfully answered all my questions – in plain English – so I could understand the process. She asked questions to determine my plans for the films and suggested converting them to a format I could later edit. JoAnn’s advice on editing was excellent and is working very well for me, as I’m no professional! Prices were reasonable and competitive; the quality of the digital files was better than I could ever have imagined. I put my full trust in DigiSavit and I was not disappointed!!" Pat P.
