What is Cloud Computing?

Everyone is confused right now, “What is A Cloud Computer?”, and “Where is this Cloud?” Why in a Cloud?”  “What’s up with the Cloud?”  ”Hey, Hey you, get off of my Cloud!” Well Cloud is just another name for the Internet. Period. We all know what that is right? Well that’s all it is, except it’s your own special Internet, your special Cloud, used only for you.

Most people don’t care where the information is coming from as long as it’s coming. No down time, No server issues, No storage issues. Just be there when I need you.  For you the Business owner this Cloud is the diamond in the rough of your checkbook.  No more spending thousands of dollars on servers as your business grows or the tens of thousands on storage as you need and the regulations kept on you by government entities to keep your data safe.  Here’s The Cloud.

You as the user might not even know, when at work, the files you use or the programs you run every day, yes they are right there on your workstation, but they are stored somewhere. Right now that somewhere is in a back room full of all kinds of cool looking computers and switches and stuff that looks like NASA used yesterday.  The owner of the company or the corporation you work for has spent thousands and thousands of dollars in that room so work can keep going on.   

The Cloud now eliminates all the mess in the back room and all your files and programs that you use are now in your own little Internet (Cloud) only used and accessed by you.  So no more big closets full of switches, no more servers off line and cannot get things done today, no more worry of losing critical information that has been forgotten to be backed up. Where’s all your info? It’s “in the Clouds”. So the next time conversations come up about Cloud Computing, you’ll know your heads not in the Clouds, your information is.
