Cloud Computing is the delivery of computing services—servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and more—over the Internet. Companies offering these computing services are called cloud providers and typically charge for cloud computing services based on usage, similar to how you pay bills for water and electricity etc.
The cloud is just the internet and cloud computing is way of accessing your organization applications, data and documents directly over the web from anywhere, at any time on any device, rather than from your hard drive or onsite server. If you ever checked your email you are already using the cloud.
According to an IBM statistic about 85% of new applications are being developed around Cloud Computing. The industry is expected to grow tremendously, driven mainly by the services that allow users to back up their files including photos and music, while ensuring easy availability of files in cases of hard drive crash. Studies by NASDAQ indicates that investments in cloud technology is likely to expand over US$ 40 million by the year 2018.
With cloud computing and the technology behind it there are many potential opportunities and capabilities. Cloud computing can open a whole new world of jobs, services, platforms, applications, and much more. There are thousands of possibilities beginning to form as the future of cloud computing starts to really take off.
For instance, vendors and service providers can get on board to develop new and different ways of selling their goods and services to the cloud users through the cloud technology. It opens up a whole new platform for designers and web developers. Businesses and organizations can organize themselves and conduct business much more affordable and professionally. Social networking and keeping in touch with friends gets a great deal easier as well.
