So glad you asked. There certainly is a lot of “fog” out there surrounding this now very popular buzzword.
Simply put, Cloud Computing is a way of running your computer systems virtually, without having to own, maintain, upgrade or rely on your own physical servers. Instead of directly accessing your data, apps, and operating system as done in the past, you now access them remotely via the Internet. All your systems and information is stored in secure, redundant data centers, ensuring you can access it at any time and place from any device.
The best part is, its still available through disasters, outages or equipment failure that used to cripple companies. Even better, Cloud Computing will save your company money and allow you to focus on what your business does best!
