“I don’t need a hard disk in my computer if I can get to the server faster… carrying around these non-connected computers is byzantine by comparison.”
– Steve Jobs, Late Chairman & CEO of Apple Inc. (1997).
What accordingly said by Mr. Steve Jobs was referring towards the dynamic replacement of the traditional storage components with the cloud storage models.
Today we are surrounded with technology, and almost every one of us carry little or big hold on cloud computing terminologies. Though, there exist some laymen who does not have a vibrant picture of the cloud platform. This article accordingly is targeted towards those rookies, who founds to be bit sloppy with the cloud concepts.
‘Cloud’ these days is cited as one of the prime sources to store and backup huge amounts of data and information over the internet servers, without any physical boundaries. (Note: storage space varies with service/account type). Cloud Computing is therefore a flavor of computing, which relies on sharing a pool of servers and resources over a network (typically the ‘Internet’), and allows the users to upload and download information, data, and programs to and from the virtual servers.
