Answer by Showlow
Cloud computing is where all your info, documents, photos, videos,etc. is stored in the cloud. The cloud meaning the internet. Like Google’s new chrome OS, your mail is stored in gmail’s storage, your documents in something like skydrive or google docs, and it goes on and on. With cloud computing, you can access all of your info from any computer in the world, just be logging into your account.

FAQ
Question by Veli: What is Cloud Computing? Layperson giving 10 points?
I am from literature background with basic understanding of the Net and a few of the office software. I do not know if an application software and operating software are two different things or one.
Here are a few of my questions, please explain just the basic idea,

Can it be installed on a personal comp? Most forums talk about companies so…

If it works on a common platform (platform meaning not the way programmers understands it but a layperson, since they say it works on a common network) how will this affect the security?

In the current state of affairs, if my computer is disconnected from the internet, i can still keep my work on, on a word or excel sheet; since cloud computing is entirely web-based, what will happen to my work, if the cloud comp gets disconnected?

Cloud computing is using internet connectivity to access computing services not present locally. An example of this would be Dropbox, or Google Docs. In a sense, Steam would also be an example of cloud computing, as would Facebook and other social media.

Cloud computing would ordinarily not be installed per se on a personal computer, but a client can be installed on a personal computer to gain access to cloud computing.

Security is an issue, as is data lock-in. There’s no layperson explanation available there – it would concern such things as cryptography (both symmetric and asymmetric) and various cryptographic attacks.

If a computer using a cloud based service gets disconnected, there are two ways this can be handled. Either the computer starts buffering data (in order to transfer them once connectivity is restored – Dropbox does this for instance), or the computer shuts down the service (because connectivity is interrupted – Facebook does this).

Cloud computing isn’t necessarily _web based_ per se, it is actually based on _internet connectivity_. Two different things, though the difference is usually too subtle for a layperson to discern, so I won’t go into detail there.

Question by Himanshu Gajwani: what is cloud computing?
Ok…So I have googled it. But I can’t understand the complex language. I just need a basic understanding. (As simple as possible)

Answer by Daytona
Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction

BASICALLY, its information (applications, files, ect) that are stored on one server, that can be accessed by something, like a tablet, a computer, ect, can connect to to get that file,application, whatever

Think of one file, and 100 computers. Why would you have that one file on a 100 different computers, when you can have it on one, then have all the other computers connect to the computer to view it?

Think of the server as a “Cloud” up in the air and people can access it wirelessly through the “air”.
