I just came from a meeting , board meeting that is, where we were being informed about clouding. Apparently it is the latest revolution in Internet Service Providing Services.
From my understanding it is one of those things that is revolutionising IT and the way we look at storage devices. Ok by now I'm guessing you can tell I'm a novice at this but I'm determined.
According to Wikipedia (which is my very reliable source of information , next to Google and the Oxford Dictionary) clouding is "Cloud computing is the delivery of computing and storage capacity  as a service  to a heterogeneous community of end-recipients. The name comes from the use of a cloud-shaped symbol as an abstraction for the complex infrastructure it contains in system diagrams. Cloud computing entrusts services with a user's data, software and computation over a network. " Right, who got that?
From what I understand, cloud computing has a lot to do with virtualization, stretching the network a little bit. Still confused? Look at it as a handbag of srts where you put all your stuff in and you're able to carry it around with the greatest convernience. So now instead of having everything all over the place, your data has one space to stay in. Get it?
Yeah man, it's like in the old days we had floppy disks, then we moved to CD's, DVD's and the we had flash drives which revolutionized how we store things. Convenient!
Now we have cloud computing.
Apparently it's good business sense if you're a big company as Capital expenditure is decreased when you're on it.. I don't know. I actually like my old and trusted Google and Wikipedia and flash drive. I"m not a geek so...
Think you can make it any simpler for me?
