What is Cloud Computing?

What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is essential to most businesses, but what is it, how is it defined?

The reality is that cloud isn’t actually the cloud (be honest, I bet some of you secretly thought it was), it’s a physical place, a type of computing where individuals and businesses rely on a third-party to manage their computer data processing via the internet.

It’s a commodity, something that all companies are rapidly taking advantage of out of necessity. Public cloud providers such as Curatrix Technologies provide secure, reliable and scalable computing from a shared secure data centre.

This short video courtesy of Microsoft explains clearly the advantages and how it works…

On-premise compared to cloud computing

On-premise can work for some, however, can be expensive and not the most secure and reliable way to store your data.

Costs such as hardware, software, licencing, electric not to mention space and staff to maintain and protect it all add up. The cloud, on the other hand, eliminates all that extra cost, stress and responsibility. Saving companies money and time by paying for what you use as and when you need it, giving your business the opportunities to expand quicker.
