Everyone is talking about mobile solutions and cloud backup. While there might be people reading this, thinking about it, or even using the cloud that are wondering - what exactly is "The Cloud?"
It's not an embarrassing question - the cloud is one of those entities that people often discuss without fully understanding. That's why it's good to back up a bit and review. How does it work?
What is the Cloud?
Definitions can undoubtedly vary, but essentially, the cloud is a system or global network of servers which all have various functions. There is no physical location or 'cloud,' which can be confusing!
This network is vast and can operate as a single "ecosystem" to either store or manage data, deliver content or services, and operate applications, and more.
