For those who are new in the field of computers might certainly want to know what exactly is “cloud computing”. If we talk about it in simple language, it is using the equipment’s of the computer but not our own but of the others. Now, one may ask why it is done. There are a number of reasons for this.
1. Technical details to be forgotten
With the help of cloud computing one can easily focus the attention on work and not on the technical details of what the size of the hard drive is. These technical details are to be taken care of by the other party involved. There are a lot of times when these so called other parties charge the user to a certain limit for the use of their equipment. And for the programs that it allows you to use but belongs to that other party. On the other hand there are a number of parties that allows the user to use their programs and equipment’s without charging them for the same, not even at the minimal rate. But one must keep in mind that these programs that the user is allowed to use free of charge with cloud computing are the once that are in the category of basic services.
2. Saving space on the hard drive
If one icloud or say cloud computing on the mobile phone he/she has or on his/her computer then he/she can store a lot of document files including the music files without using any space on the hard drive. These files are stored on the hard drive that is majorly maintained by the Apple corp. The best feature here is that a reasonable amount of guarantee is given for this storage and the interruption that one has to bear with regard to this is negligible.
3. Use of service from various devices
It is clear now that the files are not stored on the hard drive when has the cloud computing. This part of using the icloud is simply the best and certainly the mot advantageous. The reason, the user does not have to restrict himself/herself to a particular device. The files that are stored by the user can be easily accessed from any device that has cloud computing.
4. Easy to be configured services
There are some cloud computing catalogues that are made available to the user when he/she opts for cloud computing on the specific device that he/she owns. With the help of this catalogue one can easily configure as well as arrange the cloud computing service on the specific device that he/she owns. One does not need the help or guidance of any IT professional with this regard. This is one the most striking characteristics of cloud computing.
5. Lesser workload
If one has cloud computing then one can easily think of something else to be done as the work load that a particular local computer had to bear in the absence of cloud computing was more and now it ha to be shifted to the computers that are inter linked with the main computer. It is the duty or say, the job of the computers in network with the cloud computing to mange the work and the services. There is a systematic reduction in the demands of the user when he/she is using the Cloud computing. There is only one thing that is required by the computer to make it run and it is the interface software. This is not much complicated, infact it is as undemanding as any of the web browsers. And after this, it is completely the job of the network of the cloud.
