Definition Of: CLOUD


Cloud Storage is a service where data is remotely maintained, managed, and backed up. The service allows the users to store files online, so that they can access them from any location via the Internet.

Tuntex Private Cloud

Deploying cloud computing internally. Tuntex cloud storage offers storage capacity that is virtualization, highly flexible and scalable, billable, easy to manage and rapidly provisioned to users as a services. This is running Web-based over the Internet and employs cloud computing within a Tuntex's own server or wide Tuntex networks. The term implies that the same methods used in huge Internet-based datacenters are also used in the Tuntex private clouds.


Tuntex private cloud, 'private cloud' the word 'private' does not relate to the security of the virtual machines, nor does it relate to the data or applications that run on them. Instead, the word private relates to the exclusive use of the platform on which the virtual machines, applications and data reside. A Tuntex private cloud is a physical cloud infrastructure that is wholly dedicated to Tuntex Company. Virtual machines can be created on that infrastructure for the exclusive use of that entity. This means that when Tuntex invests in private cloud, we obtaining access to our own host hardware, hypervisor, RAM, storage and networking - none of which is shared with any other user.

Reasons Tuntex Need Private Cloud Storage:

     As a Data Center, Tuntex need strict control over the data store in the cloud, for security and compliance. The private cloud can collaboration and global data access over the internet that end users need, without compromising. So, Tuntex need to build a private cloud on premises and have complete control over its infrastructure, deployment, implementation roadmap and administration.


Securing (and ensuring the privacy of) Tuntex Company digital life.

Let’s turn our attention to file storage, specifically cloud file storage. 

Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon S3, Apple iCloud, Microsoft OneDrive—odds are, you’ve used at least one of those services to store your files (pictures, work documents, music, etc.). Being able to toss these files into an online repository is undeniably handy. 

Seldom-used files taking up space on your local drive? Toss it in the cloud! Need to collaborate with a co-worker on a document? Into the cloud! Simply want to have access to some of your files from any device? Up you go, it’s cloud time! 

Now seems like a good time to mention a proverb as old as time itself, or there is no unchanging thing save change:

“There is no cloud, it’s just someone else’s computer.”

Is that an oversimplification of what “The Cloud” really is? Sure. But only a little. The fact of the matter is when you upload a file to a “cloud service” (such as Dropbox) you’re really just uploading to a server (or a group of servers). 

Why is that worth mentioning here? 

Because a server is just another word for “a computer that serves up some data.” And in the case of companies that provide a cloud storage service (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.), that means there are some potential problems to bear in mind: 

  1. You don’t have full access to the server that stores your files.
  2. You have no say over the security of the server.
  3. Multiple people (likely) have root/admin access to that server, and those are (likely) people you don’t know.
  4. If that service is used by many other people, that makes that service a bigger target for someone looking to get a lot of bang for their “time I spent hacking” buck.
  5. The larger services are also (likely) going to be watched far more closely by government agencies.
  6. You can’t ensure the server runs only open source and free software (so that it can be properly defended against backdoors and the like). It’s not your computer. It’s someone else’s. 

In short, by utilizing a large, cloud storage service, you give up control and security (possibly) while making your data part of a larger target for those looking to gain access to it. It is, all things being equal, less private and less secure. 

[I should be clear: That doesn’t mean all large, cloud services are less private/secure than all personally run servers. But, at least conceptually, this is true.]


The best option for secure Tuntex data storage

So, that is why i build Private Cloud on Tuntex own server; Nextcloud and Owncloud. Obviously Tuntex need a way to store Tuntex own personal (and work) data that will provide a bit better privacy and security. 

Tuntex Private Cloud provide with a simple way to sync your files using a desktop/mobile application and access them from a web interface. It's running on a dedicated server that I administer myself. That gives me as much control as possible over Tuntex files. I have  My Nextcloud very few services running, everything encrypted, all communication over HTTPS, but this does mean I need to be on top of any necessary security patches. 

Tuntex Private Cloud is hosted exclusively on Tuntex private server/cloud so i can rest assured that Tuntex's data is under my control. Tuntex Cloud is all about Tuntex privacy and works to protect Tuntex's files. It ensures that access is controlled only by me as Tuntex IT Administrator.

Advantages of Tuntex Private Cloud:

Tuntex Private cloud infrastructure is a dedicated infrastructure provided to Tuntex Company.

It offers these benefits:

  • Enhanced security and privacy: The cloud belongs toTuntex. Hence, the infrastructure and systems can be configured to provide high levels of security. In addition to the perfectly robust security that is possible on individual virtual machines, Tuntex private cloud can be isolated from all, Tuntex owns it. This restricted access, which can integrate with a firm's firewall and other remote access policies, offers an additional layer of security.
  • Improved reliability: When compared to either dedicated hardware or public cloud alternatives, Tuntex private cloud offers a greater degree of reliability thanks to a fault resilient and redundant architecture that isn't shared in any way.
  • Improved performance: The resources within Tuntex private cloud infrastructure are at the disposal of Tuntex. There is no contention with other companies for capacity (only with your own workloads) and far less chance that a malicious attack against another firm will affect your ability to function.
  • Increased flexibility: Unlike a physical machine, a virtual machine can be scaled up and down seamlessly. And when Tuntex own all the virtual machines, Tuntex can reallocate resources dynamically, wherever Tuntex needed most.
  • Total control: Better controls for data, users and information assets. Although there is a fair amount of universal best practice that I should no doubt follow, i am free to build and configureTuntex private cloud in any way i like. For example, i have the freedom to use any operating systems and applications i please and to allocate resources in any way i see fit. 
  • Cost: Initial investment for hardware is very high in case of an on-premise infrastructure. 
  • Superior Performance: Tuntex private cloud deployed inside Tuntex's firewall which ensures efficiency and good network performance.
  • Easy Customization: The hardware and other resources can be customized easily by me.
  • Compliance: Compliance is achieved easily in private clouds.
  • Integrated: Fully integrated with Internal File Server, using one user id and one password ( LDAP Backend ).
