Apple Established iCloud Using China Telecom Storage Services
In a move that is meant to soothe the Chinese consumers that are complaining on the slow speed of their iCloud connectivity, Apple finally established its first iCloud data center by using s State owned telecom company storage services. To increase its iCloud bandwidth China Telecom was added to Apple’s list of data center thus improving their performance in China.
While some are concern that the change will bring compromise to the security and privacy of user data but was placed to rest as Apple takes its user security and privacy seriously. All the data stored with their providers are encrypted and China Telecom has no access to the content. The U.S. company giant iCloud service will enable users to automatically sync, store and back up their files from their Apple devices to the iCloud data site.
Although the company didn’t give any more details on the new iCloud center, but a story was released by the Fuzhou city government said that the switch in storage facilities took place on August 8 after 15 months of technical testing and evaluation. The report stated that user experience is expected to increase along with technical improvement even with possible system interruptions.
This iCloud project has increased China Telecom’s confidence in developing technical innovation and control on its products.
