What is the cloud? Where is the cloud? Are we in the cloud now? These are all questions you’ve probably heard or even asked yourself. The term “cloud computing” is everywhere.
In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet. It goes back to the days of flowcharts and presentations that would represent the gigantic server-farm infrastructure of the Internet as nothing but a puffy, white cumulonimbus cloud, accepting connections and doling out information as it floats.
Cloud Computing Industry
Cloud computing is primarily comprised of three services: infrastructure as a service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS), and platform as a service (Paas). Software as a service is expected to experience the fastest growth, followed by infrastructure as a service. According to research conducted by Forrester, the cloud computing market is anticipated to grow from $58 billion in 2013 to more than $191 billion by the year 2020.
