cloud computing



Cloud Computing is the ability to use the power of other computers (located somewhere else) and their software, via the Internet (or sometimes other networks), without the need to own them. They are being provided to us, as a service.


The best way to look at cloud computing is by visualizing a giant digital file cabinet. Employees deposit information into this file cabinet once a week. It’s easy to get to it, as everyone has a key, and it is password protected. Once the information is in the file cabinet it gets stored in a remote location that can again be accessed by anyone who has the key or password. The only difference is this information is now freeing up space for more immediate projects. The remote location acts as the cloud.


The cloud sucks up all of this information and safely stores it. It creates this idea that we don’t need a giant hard drive to keep all of our data safe, just a strong password and a large server.

The words we type are swiftly shuttled over the Net to one of Google's hundreds of thousands of clustered PCs, which dig out our results and send them promptly back to us. When we do a Google search, the real work in finding our answers might be done by a computer sitting in California, Dublin, Tokyo, or Beijing; we don't know—and most likely we don't care!
