4 Cloud Computing Examples That Demonstrate Success

by | Feb 9, 2016 | Business Continuity, Cloud & Hosting

In the nebulous cloud, here are cloud computing examples that can change your life.

Whether you know it or not, you use the cloud all of the time. It’s all around us, in places we haven’t even considered in years. Here are some cloud computing examples that are probably in your life.

E-mail

E-mail used to be downloaded and stored on your computer. Now, it’s saved on the cloud. This is how you can access your email from any computer, or even your phone.

Credit cards

Every time you buy something with your credit card, the system accesses the credit company’s database through the cloud. So even buying gas or a bag of chips uses the cloud.

The cloud is all around us. In addition to the places you didn’t realize you were using it, there are also places that you didn’t realize you could use it. Here are a couple of cloud computing examples that might be of interest to you.

Storage

If you’re not already using cloud storage, you should definitely look into it. In addition to freeing up space, and eventually money, in your own office, cloud storage can also be used as a backup system. It’s perfect for saving backups, because anything you store on the cloud is usually saved in multiple places, and in multiple locations.

Accounting and HR management

You can save money, time, and space by having a cloud company take care of your accounting and HR records. These companies do more than just store the files. All you need is someone to upload the data to the cloud, and the company will take care of all of the processing, and anything else that needs to be done.
