Cloud computing features and understanding cloud computing

Cloud computing features and understanding cloud computing.
Everywhere today only one word is buzzing around. CLOUD COMPUTING!!!
Many of you must be having questions about what exactly this cloud computing is? What is the requirement of cloud computing? Why cloud computing? What are advantages of cloud computing and so on?

Today I will discuss some of the features of cloud computing. What are the new trends coming to cloud computing?
Cloud computing is very important in terms of stopping piracy and cost cutting. In fact Cost cutting and Piracy are two important features of cloud computing. Because of these two unique advantages of cloud computing, all IT companies will move their businesses toward cloud computing and some of them have already started moving towards cloud computing platform.
If you have a very basic low configuration or low capacity computer, and if you want to avail all software services starting from basic software like word, excel, power point to ultramodern animation software, you will have to increase the capacity of your computer. However with cloud computing enabled you don’t have to increase the capacity of your computer yet you can avail all the modern software services with the help of cloud computing. There will be a server local to your city or anywhere in the world which will have all the required modern software services. Your computer will be able to avail all these services with the help of cloud computing.

If you have cloud computing services enabled then your machine or computer will have only one icon present on it. You will have to login with credentials provided by the company who provides cloud computing services. After login you need to provide list of software services you require. In few moments requested software icons will appear on your computer desktop. Once your work is done, these icons will automatically be removed from your computer.
The biggest advantage of this cloud computing feature is that, you don’t have to store any unnecessary information on your computer. Hence computer’s efficiency and speed rises drastically. For example, your computer may have Photoshop installed. However, in practice you use it very few times. When you are not using it, this software still consumes storage space on your computer. With the help of cloud computing you will be able to get rid of storing unnecessary software.
Following are the sample cloud computing diagrams taken from Google –
