- Cloud computing is the delivery of different services through the Internet, including data storage, servers, databases, networking, and software.
- Cloud-based storage makes it possible to save files to a remote database and retrieve them on demand.
- Services can be both public and private—public services are provided online for a fee while private services are hosted on a network to specific clients.
What can Cloud Computing do for you?
Work from anywhere. Cloud-based software offers companies the ability to use software from any device either via a native app or a browser.
Ubiquitous access to information. Cloud computing allows users to check their email on any computer and store and access files using services such as Dropbox and Google Drive.
Protect Data. Cloud storage services ensure organizations can access files immediately in the event of a hard drive crash on a user’s local system.
Reduce Hardware costs. By storing data in cloud infrastructure, organizations can reduce the storage requirements for their desktops or laptops.
