What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, where shared resources such as software and other information is provided to computers and other devices, such as smartphones, in an on-demand environment.
Based on the Internet, Cloud computing typically involves using scalable and often virtualized resources as a service over the Internet. Typical Cloud Computing providers delivering common business applications online which are accessed from another web service or software–such as a web browser–while the software and data are stored on servers.
Most Cloud Computing infrastructure consists of reliable services delivered through data centers and built on servers. Clouds often appear as single points of access for all consumers’ computing needs. In effect, cloud computing just means software is being run in one location and it is being accessed from another.
The biggest benefit of cloud computing is that it solves a challenge that almost every company faces: lack of budget dollars, and the desire to be competitive with other businesses in their market.
Here are some reason to get on the cloud-computing bandwagon:
· Low start-up costs
· Low cost for sporadic use
· Ease of management
· Device and location independence
· Rapid innovation
Cloud computing can be used for e-mail management system, instant messaging, calendar scheduling, and word processing, but it can also handle more robust activities and become a multi-purpose tool–useful in nearly all business functions.
With lower costs and quick implementation, Cloud Computing is the wave of NOW and has changed the way small and mid-sized businesses operate more than any other technology innovation has in years.
