What it is, how you can use it and some of the best Cloud apps and services.
In a short span of time, cloud computing has changed the way in which businesses and individuals consume computing resources.
In 2009 Juniper Research predicted that the total market for cloud-based mobile applications will rise from a little more than $400 million in 2009 to nearly $9.5 billion by 2014, at an average annual increase of 88%.
In 2011 Forrester Research predicted that the global market for cloud computing will rise from about $41 billion in 2011 to $241 billion by 2020.
AND WHY IS IT CALLED "THE CLOUD"?
It’s all because the guys that build computer networks find it easier to draw a cloud to represent all the connections that make up the Internet
The “cloud” is a word referring to all the hundreds of Internet connections involved in sending your emails, for example. Put simply, your email goes through a “cloud” of multiple Internet connections.
As the Internet grew, all the connections on the Internet became known as the “cloud”.
OR WHAT IS CLOUD COMPUTING”?
Techies realized that they could do more than just provide connections in the cloud, they could actually hook up big computers with super computing power in the cloud and share these big computers with lots of people. With this idea, cloud computing was born.
Think of cloud computing as literally a giant computer that you can access on the Internet. So now in addition to your personal computers, with cloud computing you now have another big computer in the cloud.
The Cloud is a term for describing ways of using the Internet to plug into the collective power of hundreds or thousands of computers and turning your own home computer, laptop or smartphone into a doorway to a massive supercomputer that is at your beck and call 24 hours a day and quite often even for free.
Cloud computing is the ability to employ a number of computers, hardware, software, and servers to serve your computing needs remotely without actually owning or running the software and hardware.
