What is Cloud Computing?
In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of a computer's hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet. Basically, the cloud is a bunch of servers where information is stored, somewhere else and most often by somebody else. According to Forbes, four out to five small businesses will soon be run on the Cloud. They're taking advantage of the efficiency and accessibility the platform brings their business. Will you?
