Understanding Cloud Computing


The world of technology is advancing rapidly and Cloud computing is changing how IT departments manage, store, retrieve and secure all corporate information. Cloud computing, simply put, is high-tech virtual hosting where sets of grouped resources can be stored in one place and accessed on demand. What this means is that any authorized person within your organization can access company information, software applications, emails, important files and data from anywhere there is an internet connection.

This technology is also a way for businesses to increase or add capabilities without investing in new infrastructure. Resulting in reduced costs to maintain and upgrade existing systems. Cloud computing is allowing businesses to provide users access to the latest software and infrastructure offerings, enabling businesses to add IT capabilities or additional capacity when needed.
