What Is The Cloud?

The idea of a “Cloud” can be difficult to grasp.  I find that it helps to think back to something we’re all more familiar with – the water supply.  There was a time when each home had it’s own well.  But over time, it was discovered that there were a lot of efficiencies to be gained by having a central water source that was distributed to all the homes in the area.  This lead to the water utility, which now has become a service that is supplied from a central location.

It is a similar situation with the cloud.  It used to be that each business would have their own computer infrastructure that would provide everything that business needed.  But it has been discovered that there are a lot of efficiencies to be gained by having computers in a central data center that provide services to businesses around the world.  In other words, the ‘cloud’ is nothing more than IT services as a utility.

"The 'cloud' is nothing more than IT services as a utility."

There are a lot of different services that can be provided in this manner.  One of the most popular cloud services is Microsoft Office365.  If you are considering taking advantage of the efficiencies of the cloud or would just like to know more about how this can benefit your business, contact us today!
