Cloud-based computing is an emerging practice that offers significantly more infrastructure and financial flexibility than traditional computing models. When considering cloud-based infrastructure offerings, security is a common concern. Larger enterprises may have implemented very strong security approaches that may or may not be equaled by cloud providers, but don't just assume that security is a problem. Look for the type of security functionality one would look for in an in-house solution. A documents may get mirrored to avoid delays or to provide fault tolerance. Algorithms for detecting replicate documents are critical in applications where data is obtained from multiple sources.
