Cloud computing allows your business to move part (or all) of the company's technology infrastructure into the Cloud. There is a lot of confusion on the internet regarding the "Cloud”, "it in the cloud" and what it means. Essentially, the Cloud is a different name for a data center from which you can lease hardware resources. Instead of purchasing a server for your organization for which you will need to provide space, cooling, maintenance and electricity a company may choose to lease this server from a reputable data center.
Additional benefits of Cloud Solutions include data redundancy, backup and content delivery networks (the ability to deliver your data to different sections of the world instantly).
