Cloud Computing, Moving Forward with Strategy

“Cloud computing” means the ability to store and access data and programs over the internet instead of using your computer’s hard drive (that is known as local storage). Therefore the first requirement is internet access where you can then access your work anytime from any location. A recent review of cloud computing activity estimates annual turnover for cloud providers of around $100 billion.

Three major providers of cloud computing services are Google Drive, Dropbox and SkyDrive. Each provide competitive services for file synchronisation, personal cloud and client software. Computer specialists believe each provider is relatively safe in terms of storage standards and should be compared regularly to ensure your needs are being met. Each provider offers plans of free initial storage.

Don’t get left behind, a simple online search will gain important information about which provider is best suited to your needs.
