Are the big clouds drifting away?
For several years now, everybody that is in any way related to a computer, is talking about things like “the cloud”, “cloud computing” and “cloud storage”.
Obviously it is a buzzword, a hype, but what do we actually need to know about it?
Let us start with some very simple explanations. Every self-proclaimed computer expert will say that I am painting a much too simple picture, but that is exactly my intention.
Traditionally, we have always had our computers in-house in our own offices, with our own programs and our own data running on those computers. We were controlling everything ourselves, from access and security to consistency and backup of our data. Unfortunately, in this situation, sitting at the airport of Miami or in a board meeting in Paris, it was not so easy to make important decisions, without being able to look at relevant figures of our sales, inventory and cashflow. It would be nice indeed to have this information at your fingertips, without having to call your secretary. Also reducing the cost, complexity and time to deploy new workstations or other IT components would bring great benefit to any organization. Along came the cloud.
What is the cloud?
We speak about the cloud, basically whenever we are doing something with, on or through the internet.
New technologies made it possible to no longer have your software, like for instance your accounting package installed on your own computers, but they were offered by the developers/owners of the software “through the cloud”. So the software is actually running on a server somewhere else in the world and it is presented to us through the internet, using our web browser. Cloud computing.
Or, you could have the software still on your own computers, but your data was actually on the cloud.
Or, you still have your own software and data, but you are just using the cloud for storing your backup, cloud storage. The most commonly known models of cloud computing services are known as software as a service, platform as a service, and infrastructure as a service.
There are obvious advantages here, the so called low hanging fruits.
The information is readily available, as long as you have some kind of an internet connection. You do not have to worry anymore with things like security, backups, diskspace and so on. That is all provided to you by your “cloud-provider”. Maybe you don’t even need internal IT staff anymore.
But then why is Caribbean not completely on the cloud yet?
