What is the Cloud?

“The cloud” has become a part of everyone’s life to some extent in today’s world but what exactly is it?

“The Cloud” is simply a term used to describe the system you use which is a part of something larger stored online. 

Let’s use “cloud Storage” as an example.

First off let’s talk about your computer by itself. When you create a file or save a photo you probably save it to your desktop. In a business, all computers are connect to the Server, a central storage location. With these two scenarios the computers are physical and not conceptual.

Now think of this, we move the computer server to another location, and connect to it over the internet. Will it matter to the business where the server is if it can connect to it over the internet? This is effectively what a cloud solution is.
