Cloud Computing is gradually getting more and more in to our everyday life. You may be a housewife, and CEO or a Student, by now you are using more Technology based on Cloud Cloud computing than you did 4 years ago.
In our understanding the complex and changing Cloud Computing really need analogies to help us simplify. Nassim Nicholas Taleb, in his The Black Swan (Random House, 2007), devotes a good many pages to explaining how this inherited bias of our understanding can lead us to be overly reductionist and create a false sense of security in our judgments.
Where is Cloud Computing ?
Despite this warning on Cloud Computing, it is always useful in these times of year to take advantage of the quiet Christmas holiday information for reflection, although by definition it is reductionist. In technology and Cloud Computing, this reflection is highly recommended as there are few industries with a higher rate of innovation and change.
So every year, coinciding with the calendar change, I like to think about what will be the Cloud Computing product or service online that will mark the coming months. Although one of the key features of the future is precisely the surprise, there is always sufficient to identify trends in Cloud Computing.
In 2006 was the Youtube video online with a maximum exponent in 2007 has been the phone with Apple’s iPhone and Google Android as a catalyst for a needed paradigm shift in mobility in the information through the deployment of Cloud Computing.
I think one of the strongest trends are observed now and which will mark the 2008 was cloud computing. It was beginning of Cloud Computing and this year, 2011 Cloud Computing has explosively increased.
How we are using the Cloud Computing ?
Access through small applications that reside on multiple devices (computers, PDAs and phones) to information that resides on the Internet using Cloud Computing applications. Examples of cloud computing are:
- Take photos with your digital camera, pass to your computer, upload them to Picasa or Flickr for example is using Cloud Computing and show them to your friends via your mobile or any other computer connected to the network.
- Create a shared spreadsheet to organize the golden jubilee of the grandparents. 35 members of a family can access and edit through their computers actually deploying Cloud Computing and the cell phones will see the spreadsheet without any need to install any app : this Cloud Computing.
- In a New Year party, through the Blackberry update your Facebook profile saying where you are, what you are doing and upload photos just taken, allowing this information to all your friends in real time. This is Cloud Computing.
- Yes, Cloud Computing for your restaurant too : You might be using Ness for your iOS device by now and the search, which is in real time experience for the restaurant, is based on Cloud Computing : the data is in the cloud.
- An important feature of cloud computing is the marriage of content created by third parties such as the yellow pages or maps and content created and maintained by users such as Google Maps. With shared access to information via Cloud Computing, the content created by professionals may be completed and maintained by individuals.
