Not everyone is convinced about the significance of the burgeoning shift towards cloud computing, but as time goes by and more and more names become associated with cloud computing, it is beginning to dawn on the computing world just how relevant cloud computing is going to be. At the first onset of cloud computing, only the big names like Apple, Google, and Amazon were seen to be paying it some serious attention. And it seems like the pioneers are right when they predicted that cloud computing is the future of computing and that it will revolutionize the way we think about computing.
But how so?Well, one pretty obvious answer is the total eradication of the dependence on hardware. Sure, hardware is still necessary to interact with the cloud, but hardware becomes only a tool, a medium, a channel, and nothing more. This means that relying on your Mac or PC or any kind of hardware will be a thing of the past. You can now use any kind of hardware to access your data as long as there is Internet connection.
In the greater scheme of things, for webmasters and cloud hosting customers, cloud computing and cloud hosting will change the way they buy hosting plans as cloud computing are no longer restricted by physical space and hardware limitations. This means that cloud users can have access to a massive data storage system and a massive amount of resources that can make performance as robust as possible. Again, these resources are not dependent on hardware and are therefore easier and less costly to put together. In other words, cloud computing can also revolutionize the way we think about computing by giving the web enough room to grow and enough space for further performance improvements.
Cloud computing will also further revolutionize the way we think about computing by making computing synonymous with the Internet. While in the past, computing is one thing and the Internet is just one part of it, the biggest change that cloud computing will bring is that it will drive the importance of the Internet even further. It will make the Internet much more important than it currently is. This does, however, bring some drawbacks, such as the vulnerability of the system to problems pertaining to the Internet connection. This means that if your connection is poor, you will encounter problems. But it will not, in any way, endanger your files or make them inaccessible from another location, where the Internet connection is better.
So it seems clear that cloud computing will revolutionize the way we think about computing. It’s not a flawless system, but it undeniably changes a lot of things we used to know about computing. First, it makes computing less dependent on hardware. Second, it gives computing space for growth. And third, it makes the Internet even more important. Based on these changes, we start to get a glimpse of where cloud computing is planning to take the world of computing or, in other words, where the future of computing is headed.
