Aren’t Clouds just big white fluffy things in the sky?
What is”The Cloud“?
Is “The Cloud” an important tool to me or my business?
Should I care?
Oh, so you are talking about my computer or internet enabled mobile telephone connecting to the internet then?
Whilst in a way yes you could say this may be the case, but it is much bigger than just that simple statement….
The wonder of The Cloud is that if anything happens to your computer or your telephone, all your data is stored in a safe place allowing you to replace the data you lose (that is if you are backing up on a regular basis) or if you move from one place to another, all the data is there, so you don’t have to think, “Oh damn, I left it behind in the office…..”
Whilst that is just a plain and simple view of what you could say The Cloud is, you need to start thinking of the much greater wider picture. In the future, when we are all moving from place to place, wanting to share either personal or business data/information with other people or having this data somewhere for us to access it – whether this be music, photos, files, etc, etc – the importance of The Cloud will become apparent more and more….
Take your Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram or Twitter for example, you share you details of what you are up to and access the information to share with other people and this is being undertaken like what the cloud can offer you. So, look at your email, this is now changing with Microsoft moving from Microsoft Office to Office365 and Google are using their gMail facility which again is another by-product of cloud hosting.
So imagine in the future, your company is wanting something manufactured in Asia but you want to send details of what is happening with drawings, photos, etc, etc; yes you can be emailing all this back and forwards, but by using The Cloud, you are all sharing and accessing a virtual filing cabinet of all this information. Think back years ago, when companies actually, designed, manufactured and made things on a single site, all documentation was stored in the file room or archives. The Cloud is just a modern-day version and now we have the ability to do this and so so much more…..
So are you ready and starting to really embrace The Cloud?
SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR…….
