Cloud storage options for musicians, producers and DJs

Music production and DJ-ing has become increasingly accessible in the last ten years as the required equipment for recording and mixing is now predominantly digital and more accessible. A studio can now be set up in a bedroom and original hit songs quickly released to a growing fan base through a variety of media channels. Many British electronic music producers like Bicep or grime artists like Wiley started a cultural movement that reverberated around the world with just a standard home PC. Be it in a bedroom or a professional studio, data is often corrupted or mistakenly deleted and a career changing track could therefore be lost forever. Many music producers and DJs who rely on the digital storage of music have learnt this lesson the hard way. So whether you’re just starting out or have years of musical experience under your belt, this blog post looks at the options available and shows you that the safest way to secure your musical library is through the cloud.

Running out of space on your server? Shared storage could be the solution

In certain instances, technological projects conducted by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) may require extra storage space. There is, of course, SDD space provided by cloud services; however in addition to this SMEs may need, for example, to share services between servers. For example, when creating web clusters for accessing the same web content or files; when developing IT architectures where the user wants to be able to destroy and create frontend servers without worrying about the stored information; or just managing a log that does not stop growing independently. In such cases, the functionality of the so-called shared storage of the cloud servers is the best and most efficient option.

CISPE: together with other European IaaS providers – 1&1 sets an example for more Cloud security

Although businesses are starting to approach the cloud with growing acceptance, there still exists a certain amount of scepticism around the technology. People have a picture in their head of a vast disorganised “cloud”, and this brings up significant privacy concerns that providers need to address. Now, with our fellow European affiliates – arsys, FastHosts and home.pl – we are taking a step forwards in working against this negative perception. Together with other European Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers, we are supporting the Code of Conduct of the European initiative CISPE (Cloud Infrastructure Services Providers in Europe), which was introduced to the public last week.

From one-size-fits-all to customised solutions – new technologies enable more flexibility

1&1 Managed Cloud Hosting

Several years ago, on my first trip to America, I was ordering a sandwich at Subway and was overwhelmed by all the questions I had to answer. Every possible combination of different types of bread, cheese, meat, salads and sauces were available – whatever I wanted! Similarly, when choosing a car nowadays, buyers are confronted with a myriad of configuration options so that today there are probably very few cars that are completely identical.  Indeed, much has changed since Henry Ford’s famous saying that customers could have the Model T in any color, as long as it’s black.
