More than the 70% of the companies use the cloud to store their data. This is one of the conclusions of a report leaded by Mediacloud about the use of cloud in the enterprises. However, the analysis indicates that the use of cloud as the only infrastructure is not widely established. (more…)
Recently we explain you in this post what is Cloud Computing and we also talk about its different levels and kinds. Today we are going to quote further and we are going to talk about each kind of cloud in a more detailed manner in order to help you about what cloud is better adapted to your company’s needs.
As we explained, the companies use Cloud Computing technologies increasingly for their advantages, flexibility or cost savings are examples. We have to take in mind that not all companies could use the same type of cloud, depending on the intended use, where the applications are installed and which customers could use them, companies will hire one kind of cloud or other.
If your answer is no, probably you are wrong. We are going to approach in otherwise, do you have an email address? We are sure that the majority of answers are affirmative and it means that in some way you have had any experience with Cloud Computing.
What does Cloud Computing really means? We have to travel to the past to answer this question: years ago, if you wanted to use some program or software, you had to install it in your computer and if you also wanted to use it in your friend’s computer, you had to install it in both computers. This situation has ended thanks to Cloud Computing or colloquially known as Cloud. Now, you can find all the programs, apps and/or services that you need, installed on a server and you can access there from anywhere provided that you have internet connection.
If somebody doesn’t know what a server is, don’t worry, here you can find a definition: A server is a kind of computer (more powerful than conventional computers) that contains all the information (programs, videos, images, text files…) that a user, who has access to this computer, request.
