What is cloud computing?
In simple business terms, Cloud Computing is a way to access the data or applications you need, without having to buy and maintain the hardware or software to support it. Great examples of Cloud Computing that most people are familiar with are online e-mail hosting, such as Yahoo! or Gmail, and online movie providers like Netflix. Users no longer have to buy or rent a physical DVD or even have a DVD player. They simply stream a movie directly to their television, computer, or smart phone from anywhere that Internet access is available. With Cloud Computing, users only consume what they need and don’t have to worry about the infrastructure it takes to make it work. Cloud Computing has been in existence for over a decade and, in the business setting, has mainly been used by large enterprises as a solution to answer certain pieces of their technology infrastructure, such as e-mail and data backups.
