We are often asked (usually in a hushed voice so as to not be overheard): What exactly is the cloud?
It’s okay, while the term “cloud” is tossed around in many IT and related circles, few actually bother to explain what the cloud does and does not mean.
The cloud is a vague term that promises being able to access a file from virtually any location on the globe on our desktop computers, laptops and mobile devices. What is less known is that the cloud is not floating out there in some virtual netherworld, rather it’s built from real physical infrastructure. That infrastructure consists of computers, many located in big warehouses, all to support data and file access across much of the world.
