Is it safe to send large attachments in an Email?

Posted by Muhammed Posted on Friday, July 25, 2014
If you need to send a file to someone, the first option should be an Email. But if it is large file, is it safe to send via an email? No, really not.

For security reason most of the email service provider will have message size limit otherwise the email servers bombarded with large mails and cause server down or low performance. The default sending /receiving message size limit of major email service providers are Gmail (25 MB) Yahoo Mail (25MB) and (10 MB).

Even though if you send large attachments via mail, there is a chance to block or bounce back your mail from recipient’s end due to restriction or limited mailbox size especially if they are using hosted solution for an email. This might also cause your mailbox to exceed the storage quota because each mail you sending will be saving on your send items.

Due to this limitation you may receive the following errors when you send large mails

  • 552 Message size exceeds fixed maximum message size
  • Attachment size exceeds the allowable limit
  • The recipient's mailbox is full and can't accept messages now 
So sending large attachments in an email is not a best solution.

The best way to send large files over the internet is file hosting service.  It makes the process simple, you just need to upload the file and share the download links with your recipients. The recommended file hosting service is Google Drive /OneDrive because they offer good storage space (15 GB) with default file size limit (2 GB & 10 GB) for free. If you go for paid one, you will get more. Recommended to read: - Best Free Cloud-Sharing Services

Virtualization and Cloud Computing? Two Different Concepts

Posted by Muhammed Posted on Saturday, May 18, 2013

Cloud computing and virtualization are two concepts that are difficult to separate. They are similar beasts but distinctive in their own way. Instead of oranges and oranges, think of them as oranges and tangerines. One is about sharing resources while the other is more about sharing space. To understand the diversity of these two critical areas of technology, you must delve deeper into the proper definition of each.

A Little about Virtualization

Virtualization is the creation of a virtual version of something. Let’s break this down. What does it mean to create a virtual version? When you install a hard drive on a computer, you are dealing with one actual component that the company owns. If you partition that hard drive, you create two virtual devices out of one piece of hardware.

That is the basis behind virtualization. You are taking one thing and making it more. Network virtualization means splitting the bandwidth to create channels. Storage virtualization splits one storage component into several that remain managed by one system. A virtual server breaks one server resource apart to create a number of distinct servers.

A Little about Cloud Computing

You might say cloud computing is a direct descendant of virtualization. You only need one phrase to understand the difference, however –“as a service.” Cloud computing is the sharing of resources to increase capacity. Working in the cloud means utilizing a pay-per-use or subscription system to gain access to a resource like an application.

A cloud computing company takes one thing and makes it available to multiple clients via the Internet. They use a multitenant architecture to lease the resource. This way companies can live outside their means, so to speak. A start up business gets access to progressive applications that they could not afford to buy by working in the cloud.

So, how are they Different?

Cloud computing is a much broader term than virtualization. Technically speaking, cloud computing is taking virtualization to the next level using a multi tenancy format. If you think of the old joke what came first – the chicken or the egg and put a tech spin on it, you are coming close to understanding how virtualization and cloud computing differ.

Virtualization came first. It is the pioneer –the stepping stone that led to cloud computing, but like any good child, cloud technology outgrew its parent.

How are they the same?

Like parent and child, the two technologies have similarities. They are both about making more out of something. When you split a hard drive, you create two where there was just one. Cloud computing expands on that practice, but as a service. They have similar goals – like scalability – but virtualization is more of a singular enterprise.

They Same but Different

You might say the biggest difference between these two concepts is the end game.

Virtualization allows companies to expand automation and increase computing power.

Cloud computing is more about creating opportunities where they might not otherwise exist like access to applications or offsite storage.

Virtualization optimizes one piece of hardware to reduce maintenance and improve performance.

Cloud computing gives many people access to one application in order to stretch its capacity from product to service. It is a moneymaking enterprise.

The form of expansion each business needs depends on what they hope to accomplish. If the goal is to stretch a piece of hardware out and get more from it, chances are virtualization is the right choice. If the desire is to gain access to an application or service you don’t already have, you are looking for a cloud alternative.

Best Free Cloud-Sharing Services

Cloud service
It can be very inconvenient when you need important documents or other files and are not able to access your computer. It can also be very inconvenient to transfer those files to an external hard drive or flash drive to be able to have access to them wherever you are. Cloud storage offers a solution that allows you to access your important files from any device without having to remember to transfer them to an external storage device.

There are many paid services available, but if you only need a little storage, there are several free services. Here are some of the best free cloud-sharing services available:

Dropbox :You can get 2 GB of storage for free to store your documents, images, videos, and more on this popular site. There is no limit to upload size, just the overall storage limit. If you want more storage, there are paid options. You can upload through the website, or you can download the desktop app for a quick drag and drop option for transferring files.

Box : Get up to 5 GB of storage with a 250 MB file upload limit with a free account on Box. Not only can you upload documents to the cloud, but you can also edit them through third-party apps, allowing you quick modification without having to download and then re-upload documents. Additional storage is available with a paid account.

Apple iCloud: If you have an Apple device -- such as an iPod, iPhone, or an iPad -- you can sync all your files across your devices with this cloud storage service. You get 5 GB of free space, and you can edit and manipulate documents in the cloud. However, the service is only good for Apple users
Google Drive: Like Apple, Google seems to have a product for everything. Google Drive gives you up to 15 GB of free storage (not counting documents that were converted from Google Docs). You can upload documents, spreadsheets and more to access from anywhere you have an Internet connection. The default file size limit is 10 GB

Microsoft OneDrive: Get a whopping 15 GB of free storage from this cloud storage service from Microsoft. You can upload through the web or the desktop application, and there are file limits of 300 MB or 2 GB, respectively. The service also supports Android and iOS, so you can use it on just about any smart phone.

Free cloud storage helps you to get access to your files and documents no matter where you are. These are some of the best cloud storage services, though there are many more available to fit your needs.
