Cloud Computing: Understanding New Technology

For a new start up business, this is a great way to begin without needing a large amount of start-up cash. For larger companies, this can come a bit costly for a number of different aspects, but mainly the amount of information needed to be transferred.  Nowadays everyone is trying to use cloud computing in their marketing description for their software and hardware. But honestly cloud computing is still a new technology, and many are still not clear exactly what it does or how secure it really is. Basically it comes down to the storage of computer files at a remote site. There aren’t any industry standards or clear definition of what qualifies a company to offer cloud computing service. The best definition of this type of service is having local data on your own server be recitation for two other sites and therefore anyone can access it anywhere in the world.
