Cloud Computing and Mobile Processing Saves Small BusinessMay 16, 2012 No Comments
Cloud computing, put broadly, is a term used to describe any service available on the internet. More specifically, cloud computing refers to a hosting environment that leverages pooled computing resources by way of virtualization. Cloud computing takes existing physical servers and creates virtualized servers to exist on top of them. The virtual servers leverage the computing power of the entire infrastructure without necessarily being dependent on any given hardware. This makes the servers more powerful and more reliable.
Not only does cloud computing make your servers more dependable, but recent studies have shown that they also prepare small businesses for disaster. Physical servers are vulnerable and there are many things that can happen to harm them (including but not limited to environmental issues and natural disasters)
