Simple example two weeks ago my MOW Universe site started running really slow I did a bunch of stuff to speed it up but nothing worked. Therefore, I decide to reinstall everything and wipe everything clean so I sent the database to my email and saw the problem there. Just about 700 lockouts in 2 days which means more than 3000 log in attempts in just two days. Which slowed my site down so it ran as if thousands of people were trying to access it at the same second. I took a few minutes to lock my site down so if someone attempted to login with anything wrong once it would lock them out permanently. My site speed jumped within minutes and was back to normal on all ends; my lockouts went from hundreds down two about twenty and then none the next day.
So here my point one person can have the effect of hundreds of users when hacking what will happen if they are hundreds of hackers trying to get into all these site that are now going to the cloud. Sites like adobe I mean they need lots of power just to run the software alone, then the storage, and users, cross compatibility, and now security. Honestly, they are two companies that I think can pull off having products like adobe online and that is Microsoft and Google.
And here is my last reason most of my files for projects that I work on that aren’t writing; the file sizes are about 200MB a few are smaller and some reach over a GB. So why would I trust and online software for that, I can access my files instantly edit them and keep them with me always. Which on a cloud is the same except for the instant part. A file that’s 800 MB that has to download isn’t going to be instant. And I don’t want to have to wait if I get an idea somewhere I don’t have internet access or if I disconnected to get away and think sorry but sometimes no internet is better when creating.
