Transcript of The cloud
What is the cloud?
How does the cloud work
In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer's hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet. It goes back to the days of flowcharts and presentations that would represent the gigantic server-farm infrastructure of the Internet as nothing but a puffy, white cumulonimbus cloud, accepting connections and doling out information as it floats.
to understand exactly how cloud computing works, let's consider that the cloud consists of layers mainly the back end layers are the parts you see and interact with.

Why do people use the cloud?
Many businesses large and small use cloud computing today either directly (e.g. Google or Amazon) or indirectly (e.g. Twitter) instead of traditional on-site alternatives. There are a number of reasons why cloud computing is so widely used among businesses today.
Where was the cloud created?
Some say it was Amazon.com in 2006. Others say it was Google a few years earlier. But it's all a matter of perspective. We have video proof that cloud computing was really invented in 1994 by AT&T." Wire Magazine posted an article with a clip that clearly proves AT&T invented the cloud.
when did people start using the cloud
In 1969, J.C.R. Licklider introduced the idea for an "intergalactic computer network." Licklider developed ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network) and hoped one day everyone could access data and programs from anywhere.
