Cloud computing: Understanding new technology

 Cloud computing. For a new startup, this is a great way to begin without needing a large amount of initial cash.For larger companies, this can be a bit costly for many different aspects, but mainly for the amount of information that needs to be transferred.

Nowadays, everyone is trying to use cloud computing in their marketing description for their software and hardware. But honestly, cloud computing is still a new technology, and many are still not clear on exactly what it does or how secure it really is. Basically, it comes down to the storage of computer files at a remote site. There aren't yet any industry standards or a clear definition of what qualifies a company to offer cloud computing service. The best definition of this type of service is having local data on your server duplicated at two other sites, and therefore acccessible anywhere in the world.
