Better Internet Work For Businesses Through Cloud Computing
The Internet is an enormous network that connects computers around the globe to share data and communicate with each other. Through the Internet, individuals are able to share information of almost any kind – from business and personal affairs to legal matters and international news. Internet users can post messages, create accounts, and upload files of practically any kind on the Internet. In fact, the Internet has become so much a part of our lives that it is difficult to imagine life without the Internet. Virtually every major company now has an online presence and many other smaller companies have made their web presence known through the Internet. Internet users can perform a great variety of activities on the Internet, from searching for information to buying products and even interacting with other people.
Internet services include such activities as emailing, searching for information, chatting, surfing, instant messaging, and conferencing. Many of the common features of email, chat rooms, instant messaging, and web conferencing were developed for use on the Internet and so are only useful in situations where the user can physically access the Internet. These features therefore provide a method of communications on the Internet that do not require the presence of the user in front of his computer. Such methods of communications include voice mail, electronic fax, and web conferences.
The development of the Internet resulted in the birth of a number of technologies designed to make the Internet more accessible and successful. One such technology is the Cloud, an innovation to store data on a “cloud” of remote servers maintained by service providers. This cloud storage was first implemented in the early days of the Internet when it was called GeoCaching. Cloud computing got a boost, however, with the development of better Internet services such as the Cloud. The Cloud can be defined as an application platform that hosts, maintains and secures a collection of Internet resources including application servers, websites, e-mail services, databases, web applications, and other infrastructure required to operate a website.
