Cloud Computing

So what is Cloud Computing?

cloud computingOne of the most misunderstood IT concepts in the modern age is cloud computing. Why, because it’s a buzz word, created by marketing executives and sold en masse, as a solution. But what a great metaphor it is, customers can visualise their technology ‘in the cloud’ just by looking at the sky, feeling secure in the knowledge that their beloved systems are safely stored in the heavens. So basically the term “Cloud” is a new word for the internet. Overzealous marketing types love to do this sort of thing.

Yes, we have a “cloud” too, we don’t call it a cloud computing system but you understand we had to build it. Staying in the current vernacular however, it is fair to say that our cloud is particularly fluffy. Like most industries, there is a certain amount of ‘keeping up with the Jones’s’, but we really did have to build one, so we thought right… let’s make a bloody good one!

Cloud Storage and Cloud Backup

Currently there’s a lot of buzz in the computer world surrounding cloud storage and cloud backup, but what exactly does all of this talk about “clouds” actually mean, it certainly does not have anything to do with the clouds in the sky. In this sense, the term cloud storage or cloud backup is simply just the Internet, and we are all familiar with what that is! Most of us have come to rely on the Internet on a daily basis in order to perform our work, pay our bills, search for information, and talk to our friends via social networking sites.

Therefore, cloud storage is the term used to describe the storage or backup of computer data (images, text documents, audio clips, videos, software programs, etc) at an off-site storage facility called a data center. The data is then accessible via the Internet – along with a connection to the Internet via a computer, tablet, or Smartphone.

If you have a Facebook page, a Gmail or Yahoo email account you are already somewhat familiar with cloud storage . You see, having an account with either Facebook, Gmail or Yahoo means that you are storing your facebook updates and photos or your Gmail email in large data centers, which can be accessed from anywhere in the world via a computer, tablet or Smartphone simply by logging into your Facebook Gmail or Yahoo account via the Internet.

In conclusion, cloud storage or cloud backup is simply just the storage of data at data centers, which in turn is accessible via an internet connection and computer device.

So, whether you are setting up or re-inventing your technology systems, the job is a complex one with many different considerations and consequences.
