    Cloud Computing - The future of cloud computing


    (Page 4 of 4 )

    The future for cloud computing is bright. The big names in computers are throwing lots of resources into this. Dell sees a huge market for cloud computing in the future, upwards of $1 billion a year in a few more years. HP, Intel and more are throwing resources into this, and it looks like cloud computing might be the next big thing after UMPCs.

    Networks aren't ready for mass roll out yet, and connection speeds aren't yet up to handling this much data. But even Amazon sees a bright future in cloud computing. They have recently released a beta program called Amazon Web Services. The whole idea behind it is resizable computing power. When you need the power, it's there, but when you don't, you can scale back. The bang for the buck with the Amazon program is the highest; it is almost a pay-as-you-go plan for computing cycles.

    Conclusion

    Cloud computing is the next big wave in computing. It has many benefits, such as better hardware management, since all the computers are the same and run the same hardware. It also provides for better and easier management of data security, since all the data is located on a central server, so administrators can control who has and doesn't have access to the files.

    There are some down sides as well to cloud computing. Peripherals such as printers or scanners might have issues dealing with the fact that there is no hard drive attached to the physical, local machine. If there are machines a user uses at work that aren't their own for any reason, that require access to particular drivers or programs, it is still a struggle to get this application to know that it should be available to the user.

    If you're looking to implement this, you have two options. You can host it all within your network, or you can use a device from a company that provides the server storage, such as the CherryPal. I hope you have learned a lot about cloud computing and the bright future it has in the coming years.
