Cloud Computing: Top 10 Things You Need to Know! (Part 1 of 3)

The buzz of cloud computing seems to have hit a fevered pitch in industry magazines, trade publications, and the mainstream media recently.  It seems like every day our Technology Services Group is being asked by clients what the "cloud" is, or to suggest cloud-based solutions for applications or services that were (or are) typically on a server in their offices.

It gives you secure access to all your applications and data from any network device.  Cloud computing is the next stage in the internet’s evolution, providing the means through which everything – from computing power to computing infrastructure, applications, business processes to personal collaboration – can be delivered as a service wherever and whenever needed.
