By the way, another application for the cloud...

Another application that I find extremely useful in cloud computing is sharing data between devices that are running incompatible operating systems such as an iPad and a PC running Windows XP.

Storage on the cloud makes it very simple to share the same data file between two computers to allow him/her to change the content of the same file. I believe as new devices are launched, the cloud will provide the means to make data available on any platform whenever the user likes.

Now that's the kind of freedom and flexibility I like in my digital world!

Hi Jacob.

I am sure the IT savvy people look things up on the net. My point was although the internet search engines are good sources of information, one needs to be careful with mainly two things:

1 - To make sure the term is looked up on more than ONE link in the search results.

2 - To make sure that the links used as a reference are reliable and credible.

Diversifying the source of information you use on the internet, increases the quality of the information and the knowledge one acquires in my opinion.

Cryptoman, this is true with common peoples. But others like technocrats or IT savvy peoples may Google atleast once to know about such things. Am I right?

Yep, you are right. There is certain degree in the shift of skillsets, but other opportunities for cloud services will spring up.

I am not sure if the Cloud will increase the number of IT jobs. One argument is that because the Cloud is expected to replace most of the existing enterprise networks in especially small companies, there may be a "shift" of IT jobs from small companies to the Cloud service providers.

Also, with the emphasis of automation and minimal human intervention promised by the Cloud, there isn't much potential for increasing IT jobs.

Cloud computing really create more demand for IT jobs, from server administrator to developer to provide cloud services. That has not included people to support the infrastructure as well.

Defining the cloud

The cloud is not alone in adopting mealy-mouthed explanations that's don't really mean anything once they are deciphered.  I often wonder if PR and marketing people are paid by the syllable. Some things don't lend themselves to simplicity--maybe the cloud is one. The NIST definition isn't too bad and spares us "agility, robust and total system solution."

You have raised a valid point there Jacob. People often do not take the time to dig deep into the definitions of terms they hear day in and they out. Internet, e-learning and cloud are often treated as synonyms by most people, which creates a great confusion and therefore a fantastic opportunity for sales and marketing people to make more money.

Another danger is that people tend to adopt the first definition they come across for a term they are not familiar with without doubting its accuracy and completeness. Very few people spend the time to use to different references for the definition of the same term to make sure they adopt the correct one.

In an age where there is so much 'information pollution', using multiple references has become a must in my opinion.

Cryptomn, security and connectivity are two major issues with all sorts of cloud offerings. As of now there are no solutions for removing the connectivity bottle necks but certain solutions are available for security. So those who are very much concerned about security can prefer private cloud and public cloud for others. Hybrid cloud can offer a mix of both private and public cloud
