Understanding the Benefits of the Cloud and AWS

Cloud computing continues to be a hot IT topic in business. So what exactly is it?

The Cloud is an online network that allows businesses to share and store data, servers, networks, apps, and development tools. Organizations use the Cloud to get new ideas launched, protect their data, and build new products and services. There is not one Cloud or network, and it isn't located in just one place. The Cloud can be accessed on any device connected to the Internet.

To put it more simply, Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services. It includes servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence. It is offered over the Internet (“the Cloud”) for faster innovation, flexible resources, and economies of scale. You usually only pay for Cloud services you use, helping you lower your operating costs, run your infrastructure more efficiently, and scale as your business needs change.
