The Future of Cloud Computing
This paper is going to contain all information on Cloud Computing. It will explain what cloud computing is, the advantages and disadvantages of cloud computing,google cloud storage service, apple cloud, and Microsoft Cloud.
As we approach the end of your journey into digital literacy, we must select a destination. This is difficult because computers evolve and change so quickly. But, since our final subject is the future of computing, we will conclude with what most believe is the computing shape of the future. That notion is cloud computing, which at its most basic level is the replacement of all personal computers with "dumb" terminals that have no software or complex operating systems on them. Instead, these terminals connect to a World Wide Web in which applications reside alongside your data. But this is the extreme case, and now cloud computing is integrating itself as a way to store and access data from smartphones, tablet computers, laptops, and desktops. And, it is not just data that resides in the cloud, but even applications can exist there. In fact, you might be already using some.(Bowles, M. D. (2013) So what is cloud computing? The cloud is a metaphor for the space on the Internet that can be used to store your data, as well as applications to manipulate it.
Additionally, some advantages of the cloud is google and other software companies are building operating systems that exist online rather than on your computer. This would make your computer very quick to turn on because there would be no complex operating system to boot up. When you pressed the power button, the only thing the computer would need to do would be to connect to the Internet. So, startup time would be measured in seconds rather than minutes.
Another advantage of cloud computing is...
