Free Virtual Computer for Every Body


This is the most hot topic of the day what is Virtual Computer (VC)? Simply, we can say Virtual Computer is a computer which has no physical existence. In fact, VC (virtual computer) is some empty space on Internet which is allocated to a specific identity. In VC, Cloud Computing is used. The benefit of Virtual Computer is you can access it on any computer which has Internet connection. Store data, play music, surf Internet, chat with others, office work, programming, working on documents and lots of other things which you can do on VC. At the moment, you can not compare VC to your physical computer but , no doubt, in the coming future, you can do. It looks like Google Chrome OS will also have some services which will be provide through Virtual Computing.

G.ho.st (pronounce GHOST), is aiming to provide a Virtual Computer to every body. G.ho.st is using cloud computing to provide their services. Just after one day, G.ho.st will be in beta phase (currently in alpha phase). There are some news that they will provide double virtual space to every VC when they will remove beta label. Current virtual space is 15GB for every body which can be increased by 5GB if you refer somebody and that one creates account on Ghost VC. This means each time you will get 5GB more when new person creates account with your reference. G.ho.st is using the best data safety service from Amazon and VeriSign which ensures the security of your data.
