Cloud Computing: Death to the Desktop?

Jan 29, 2008

What’s the Buzz about Cloud Computing Anyways:

Cloud computing is an Internet-based use of computer technology. Many IT-related capabilities are provided as a service via the web, allowing users to access these services from any machine with an Internet connection.

In essence, cloud computing is a way to increase capacity or add capabilities without investing in a new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software. You’re getting all the functionality but none of the headaches of running the IT infrastructure in-house. No upgrades, no contract renewals, no security issues.

Benefits of Cloud Computing:

1.      Reduced Cost: Cloud computing usage is generally paid incrementally saving your company money.

2.      Increased Storage- Companies can store more data on the “cloud system” vs. their private machines..

3.      Mobility- Employees can access information wherever they are, no more remaining at your desk to get work done

4.      Scalability: Meets changing user demands quickly & efficiently.

There is quite a range of players offering every flavor of cloud computing; Microsoft, IBM, Google, Amazon etc.
