So what is Cloud Computing?
Cloud Computing is a new "buzz word" for services that have been around for a long time. If you use an online internet email service like Google© or Hotmail© then you are computing in the cloud!
Besides email, there are many other types of cloud computing services such as sharing and storing documents online, remote data backup, and website hosting.
We started to hear about Cloud Computing a few years ago. Instead of having a server onsite serving your business needs such as file serving and email, you can use an online service. This can save a small to medium-sized business lots of money in hardware and management costs. If you had your own server running Exchange Server for your organization, it can cost you up to $7000.00 in hardware, software and set up costs. Server management and maintenance can cost you up to $3000.00 per year for an Exchange server!
Why is Cloud Computing so popular?
mobile phones now able to surf the web, send & receive email, read documents and run applications; the need for online services has grown 100 times more today than just 2 years ago! Wifi internet access is available almost anywhere in large cities and you can easily get online with your LapTop, mobile phone or tablet PC!
