Cloud Computing (Office365, AWS, Google Apps)
Moving to the cloud. Running in the cloud. Stored in the cloud. Accessed from the cloud: these days is seems like everything is happening “in the cloud”. But what exactly is this nebulous concept?
The short answer is that it's somewhere at the other end of your internet connection – a place where you can access apps and services, and where your data can be stored securely. The cloud is a big deal for three reasons:
♦ It doesn't need any effort on your part to maintain or manage it.
♦ It's effectively infinite in size, so you don't need to worry about it running out of capacity.
♦ You can access cloud-based applications and services from anywhere – all you need is a device with an Internet connection.
