“In cloud computing, data from different government servers will be stored at a single location, which means that if data is hacked, then data from all servers will be compromised. The advantages of using the cloud is that the data can be acessed from any location at any time,” added Raj.

PUNE: The Department of Stamps and Registration has assured that from next week, people would not face any hassles while registering their documents as the department has almost completed the process of shifting to cloud servers.

The department is in the process of shifting all the necessary documents on cloud servers and last week many people had to face problems due to technical glitches in the server. Speaking about the move Anil Kawde, Inspector General of Stamps and Registration Department said that in the coming week, the work of shifting data to cloud servers will be completed. “Going ahead, there will not be any server issues which were causing problems earlier. The third party involved in providing the cloud services will be looking after the server space on a continuous basis,” added Kawde.

The department registers about 22 lakh documents on an yearly basis and about 6,000 to 8,000 documents are registered daily at 500 registrar offices in the State. People often have to face delays due to technical snags at registration offices across the State. Another official from the Stamps and Registration Department said that the department is in the process of testing the technicalities and there will be better functioning of the department once the process is completed.

Speaking about the results after moving to cloud, Kawde said while it will take time to get immediate benefits of shifting to cloud, the benefits are certain. “Once the whole process is completed, we have to wait and watch the technical process so that it is free of glitches,” added Kawde.

The State Government in May empanelled Amazon Web Services (AISPL), Microsoft, Net Magic, Control-S Cloud Service Providers (CSP) for a period of three years for providing cloud services to government departments.

Cyber expert Anil Raj of Cybervault Securities Solutions Private Limited said data on cloud comes with a risk of data leak and data compromise as the data is stored on a shared location. “In cloud computing, data from different government servers will be stored at a single location, which means that if data is hacked, then data from all servers will be compromised. The advantages of using the cloud is that the data can be acessed from any location at any time,” added Raj.
