Terms like ‘cloud technology’, ‘the cloud’ and ‘cloud computing’ have established themselves in the ICT lexicon in a very short space of time. But what does this technology actually involve? Are there technological or economic benefits to be gained, is it just a ‘buzzword’?
Cloud computing is a technology that uses Internet and remote servers to access applications and data. Because storage, memory and bandwidth are offered centrally, cloud computing results in more efficient computer usage and therefore lower ICT costs. One important success factor offered by cloud computing is the ability to virtualise the server environment. This explains why cloud computing's popularity has increased proportionally to the use of virtualisation services and virtualisation software like VMware.
