What is cloud computing? Cloud computing is a new process of managing, storing, and accessing data and programs over the internet instead of through a local computer hard drive or office network. (Griffith, 2016). A newer process developed in the early 2000’s to better help organizations as technology continues to evolve. Cloud computing is having the ability to access your information through an internet connection from anywhere at any time (Griffith, 2016). Of course, as with most all technology there are many advantages as well as disadvantages. Throughout this paper we will look at some of the top advantages and disadvantages that come with the process of utilizing cloud computing.
In the following rhetorical analysis, I will analyze “Cloud Computing for Increased Business Value” by Abdulaziz Alijabre. Alijabre received his Doctorate degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Bridgeford and is currently a CEO of System security solution company. Alijabre has written numerous articles and “Cloud Computing for Increased Business Value” was written in January 2012. This article gives a perception of how using cloud computing can be beneficial and yet create obstacles in business. The
Cloud Computing Benefits and Concerns Cloud computing is a new technology that comes with both benefits and drawbacks and like any new tech it can be used to great success when paired with steps to mitigate the security issues it raises. Cloud computing has become somewhat of an ambiguous term often having different meaning for different people. An article in InfoWorld (2013) stated, ”Cloud computing comes into focus only when you think about what IT always needs: a way to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software. Cloud computing encompasses any
M5 Week 1 DQ 1 Use cases for IaaS, PaaS or SaaS Cloud computing is regularly depicted as a stack, as a reaction to the expansive scope of administrations based on top of each other under the moniker "Cloud". The acknowledged meaning of Cloud Computing originates from the National Institute of Standards
“Keeping Your Head in The Clouds” (Cloud Technology) By: Azariah Foxworth North Carolina Central University Durham, NC 4/12/2010 Within the past 10 years our societies technological advantages have been somewhat space age like, even alien like characteristics. Technologies, which ten years ago only existed in our dreams but yet, have become reality. Things like, the revolutionary iPhone and its almost seamless touch-screen tech; as well as the new advancements in our cultures most prized possession, The Internet. In this subject-based paper, I will take a closer look into a fairly new emerging technology, which is simply referred to as…Cloud Technology. The synopsis will cover, what and how cloud technology works, its

Cloud Computing Definition and Use of Cloud Computing Cloud computing is storing and surveying data and programs over the internet rather than the computer's hard drive. Moreover, the cloud is a personification for the internet. It is linked to flowcharts and presentations that epitomize a huge, server-farm infrastructure of the internet as a puffy, white cumulus cloud, acquiring connections and dispensing information as it floats.
Corine Brix Professor Quade Computer Information Systems 10 July 2015 Information Competency: Cloud Computing 1. The concept that I chose to talk about for my information competency paper is the process of Cloud Computing. Obviously, the cloud in this instance isn’t some big puffy thing in the sky. In this case, the cloud is just used as a metaphor for the internet. Cloud computing can be put into a very simple context. Cloud computing can be defined as accessing saved data and different programs over the Internet, instead of getting it from your computer's personal hard drive. The “cloud” is essentially just a metaphor for the Internet. The cloud secures connections and puts out information whenever you want. One of the biggest problems with
In his article “Online 24/7: ‘Life Logging’ Pioneer Clarifies the Future of Cloud Computing”, Larry Greenemeier (2011) describes the idea of cloud technology, where it stands today and where we are heading to. According to Greenemeier’s article, the idea of cloud computing is to make all the information and services

Though the actual history of cloud computing is not that old (the first business and consumer cloud computing services websites – salesforce.com and Google, were launched in 1999), the story of cloud computing is intertwined directly with the creation of the Internet and business, the answer to the unsolved
Introduction Cloud computing is a topic of which much is assumed. The average person recognizes the term “cloud computing” as having to do with their storage from their iPad or iPhone on the online storage area which syncs their Apple devices to their computer. This common cloud is called the iCloud. That is where common knowledge ends about this topic. However, upon further exploration, a deeper understanding is gained with greater explanation, and it is realized that cloud computing is something that is used all of the time on many levels of everyday technology. While the terminology remains cryptic to the mind of most people, the concepts behind the practical uses of cloud computing become quite clear. It is relatable and understandable. Upon this revelation, the iCloud is recognized as the tip of the preverbal iceberg when speaking about cloud computing. It is important to discuss and further understand the many types of cloud computing as well as the various applications to life through technology. This affects how information is stored online, computers are protected, information is secured, emails are processed, and many other factors that are taken for granted in the world of technology. Cloud computing is a general term used to describe how information is stored, utilized, and accessed over the internet. There is no cloud, but the word cloud gives the connotation of an abstract place which is known to exist but is too vast to touch or contain (Griffith,
These days, I've got my head in the clouds, quite literally. No, I haven't applied to the wrong academic department. As much as I appreciate the study of meteorology, my clouds are more solid, more concrete. They also have as much of an impact on our daily lives as the clouds that hang over our heads during the day. As a hobby and in fulfillment of my undergraduate studies, I've started to pick apart the architecture of cloud-based computing. Cloud-based computing is the prevailing trend in computer networking, according to Vertical Systems Reseller writer Julie Ritzer Ross (2011). Most enterprises and many individuals are starting to rethink the way they use computer systems. Networking is the fundamental need for consumers and businesses alike. But while clouds seem simple from a network architecture standpoint, they most certainly present challenges the likes of which thrill me to be able to tackle. In particular, I see a pressing need for network security. While information system management and information security specialists will develop the protocols that will promote enhanced data assurance, it comes down to sensible practical engineering to deliver the goods. I am passionate about helping people work better with technology because I have seen the ways technology transforms lives, in my own community.
