    Cloud Computing

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Today we're going to explore cloud computing. I'm sure not everyone know what cloud computing is or how it works but that is what we are going to cover today. Keep reading to find out what cloud computing is, why you should care, and whether cloud computing is the answer to your (and your company's) computer and networking challenges.

    Cloud computer is the answer to two really big questions in information technology: keeping costs down and improving security. If you are in a business, this could prove to be very valuable to you and your company. Think you might be interested in cloud computing? We will show some implementations of it as well.

    How it works

    There are two parts needed for cloud computing. The first is a cloud server, which will run all the computer processes and handle the storage as well. The other part is the client computers. These are typically small and not very powerful computers that pass commands and input from the user to the cloud server.

    This technology can be utilized on a number of different levels. Google has implemented cloud computing with their Google Docs. All the processes and storage of Google Docs are done on Google servers, and not your personal computer. This can go all the way up to where all your processing and storage is done on a server and not localized in your personal computer.

    The user at their desk has a typical computer setup with a mouse, keyboard, monitor, printers, other USB devices, and a mini computer. You turn on the computer the way you normally would, but instead of booting up on a hard drive and loading the OS, you are brought to a log on screen almost instantly. Once you log on, it starts the OS that is hosted on the server. Each computer that is part of the cloud has an image on the server that would have the exact same data as a hard drive would.
