Cloud 9 Bliss

May 9, 2016/ Technology/

As if you don’t have enough troubles already keeping up with the dizzying advancements in computing technology, here’s another that will likely have you gazing at the skies and wondering. You’ve probably heard it already – Cloud Technology or simply Cloud. Your peers in the business community might have already mentioned it to you at one point. Or if you’re just a regular technophobe trying to manage your fears in the workplace, a colleague or two had likely sung its praises and left you dumbfounded.

So here you are, wanting to be in the know and aching to be current but embarrassed to ask anyone lest you get branded as living under a rock. Maybe the next few minutes will help keep you up to speed.

cloud computingIn layman’s language cloud computing involves remotely running applications and accessing files stored in other people’s or organization’s servers click here for hosting services.  If this is still too complicated to understand, you can try this for starters. Suppose someone wants to send you a video via email. Potentially, there is already a twin dilemma at work here. One, the sender may not be aware that the video could exceed the allowable file size. Second, the format of the video may not even be compatible to the available applications you have. If this had merely been a frivolous exchange among friends, you’d probably just disregard this or maybe ask your friend to upload it on YouTube. But what if this was something important and urgent to your business? By now, you would likely be breathing down the necks of your IT guys or anyone else competent to solve this problem pronto. Now to see how cloud computing can come to your rescue.

Contrary to what you might think, the essence of cloud computing technology is not actually new. It has been around since computers became an indispensable tool in the way we communicate and do business. In the ancient days of networking, long before search engine companies came to make this process a lot easier, companies usually ran e-mails as an application where data was stored in-house. Given this scenario, it was very likely all the files, documents, messages, and other things that one would currently associate with today’s e-mail were once stored in a secured area of the work place were no unauthorized personnel could access it for security purposes.

It was towards the end of the last millennium when search engine companies were born and established themselves on the virtual landscape. They offered a breakthrough in the way e-mail was treated and utilized. These companies opened their servers to store e-mail information free of charge. However, to access that data, one had to use their applications.  Practically, this is what cloud computing is all about.

Into the 21st century, the concept of cloud technology is the same except that it now covers a significantly bigger scope. It can now accommodate bigger applications that will leverage your business goals. For instance, you can now run all your computer networks and programs as a whole without ever buying an extra piece of hardware or software.

Among the many benefits that would explain its popularity, these two are the most obvious:

•companies can save a lot of money
•companies are able to abort inevitable or inadvertent disasters that could arise using the regular server protocols

To illustrate the appeal of cloud computing, check out this scenario. Imagine the licensing fees that you have to pay for if you’re planning to install an application or software for each and every computing unit of your office. The total cost is painfully astronomical. Now, with cloud technology, a company only needs to buy the software once and have the application installed on a virtual server somewhere in the “cloud” where authorized personnel can easily access and share it.

Cloud technology has also extended its reach to personal use and can only get better from here. Think of the endless possibilities that it can bring to mobile phones. Already, there are a few solutions that will allow you to use mobile in the cloud. Exciting isn’t it? To see what related advancements will soon transpire in cloud technology, in a year.

·        Trust Issues

Having your personal or business data stored over the internet might seem like a secure way of eliminating the need for creating continuous physical backups (and for bringing copies along with you wherever you go to ensure access), and it really is. However, it’s only as secure as the trust that you put on your cloud-technology provider. Sometimes, underhanded tactics and unannounced changes ruin the bond between cloud companies and their valued clients. Security breaches (especially those that get covered up) are synonymous with trust concerns as well.

·        Rules and Regulations

For individuals who save their files on the cloud, these rules and regulations don’t really matter much. However, for firms that operate in countries where there are strict rules on storing data at the corporate level, it’s important to stay on top of every update that might have a legal impact. That’s why we don’t hesitate to discuss in length whatever changes occur in these government-enforced guidelines – and we don’t just pick a few countries to focus on (we cover every update across the world).

·        Environment Options

When it comes to cloud technology, having choices is of utmost importance. After all, different individuals and businesses need different kinds of cloud-computing solutions. Whether it’s about the sheer amount of data that needs to be stored or the allocation of resources that must be secured, you must never hesitate to pinpoint what best fits your needs. Don’t worry though, as we’ll help you with that – by providing you with all the information necessary to decide which service or provider would be perfect for your specific needs.

In this blog, you’ll learn about the various major players in the application outsourcing market. You will discover their latest breakthroughs, and find out whether any one of those could be of use to you in your pursuits – whether those are personal or business-related.
