Cloud Computing

What is “Cloud Computing” and how does this affect my business?

Cloud computing is a general term for anything that involves delivering hosted services over the Internet. The name cloud computing was inspired by the cloud symbol that's often used to represent the Internet in flowcharts and diagrams.

Cloud computing is one of the fastest emerging technologies being employed and used by big and small companies and businesses today. To define cloud computing one can say that is the use of “outsourced” computing resources that can be employed or accessed through networking or the internet. Cloud computing can be compared to electricity and power grid. The consumer can easily gain access to electricity or power by simply turning on an appliance; although the consumer does not involve in the manufacturing or know the location where electricity is produced accessing it is very simple.

Not only making professional and personal lives easier, Cloud Computing is one of the best and effective ways to be more efficient.

One of the key benefits to Cloud computing is that it is designed for computing scalability.  This ensures that businesses meet their requirements if tasks that involve computer use rises. Since these services are outsourced migration to cloud computing is fairly easy, everything will be done and be provided by the vendor. Conventional computing usually, involves it takes months and months of preparation and installation of servers, however since cloud computing is outsourced these phases are no longer required hence cutting down the number of days and hours for installation alone.

There are several other benefits in migrating to the Cloud, Cloud Computing Companies now are more flexible and accessible than ever. Since most cloud computing services and products are only accessible through networking and the internet, it is best that a business or an individual discusses all available options with their IT expert and define what possible issues may arise and how these Cloud Computing Companies can ensure that all issues are properly addressed and how it can be prevented if not totally eliminated. A business model should be fully evaluated before migrating to cloud computing since there are other factors that needs to be addressed first.
