What is "The Cloud" and how does it work?

"The cloud". You've probably heard of it. It's not some mysterious concept only used by the tech savvy, you probably use the cloud every day. In this week's webchat, Tristan and Brooke demystify the cloud, what it is and how we use it.

The cloud refers to the servers or network of servers which allow you to access data and services through the internet. The cloud is often preferred over storing data locally on your computer because:

  • It's more reliable, often allowing for the ability to backup and restore
  • You have the flexibility to access the cloud anytime and anywhere in the world, just as long as you have internet access
  • It's more cost-effective because you don't need as much hardware and you only pay for what you need.

Some of the most well-known cloud services you may encounter in the office are Office365, Adobe Creative Cloud and Google Docs. However, cloud services extend much beyond the office to includes services like DropBox, Netflix, Spotify, Facebook and Instagram.

Do you know someone who still thinks "the cloud" only refers to those white fluffy things in the sky? Share this webchat with them!
