What Is The Cloud Anyway?
No one understand the cloud!!!
In the next few weeks Paylab Plus will be engaging in the conversation of “What Is The Cloud Anyway?” Lets start by discovering data storage.
Cloud storage is a model of data storage where the digital data is stored in logical pools (method of allocating space) , the physical storage spans multiple servers (and often locations), and the physical environment is typically owned and managed by a hosting company. These cloud storage providers are responsible for keeping the data available and accessible, and the physical environment protected and running. People and organizations buy or lease storage capacity from the providers to store end user, organization, or application data.
Cloud storage services may be accessed through a co-located cloud compute service, a web service application programming interface (API) or by applications that utilize the API, such as cloud desktop storage, a cloud storage gateway or Web-based content management systems.
As the mystery unfolds consumers, small and medium size businesses will get a sense of what the cloud can do for you.
See you next week!
