A couple of weeks ago a colleague asked me to explain cloud computing…with a job title of Technology Integration Specialist, it is something she expected me to know. So I answered her question with, “you know it’s when you create and save work online.” After that conversation I decided I probably needed to at least learn the basics of cloud computing.
After a lot of searching and watching video after video, I began to feel I would never understand cloud computing and therefore would remain inadequate to answer any further questions. Then I came across this video: Cloud Computing – How it all Works. This video offers a nice, simple explanation about cloud computing.
Nice and simple seem to work for me…I now feel like I know something about how it works and can now at least offer an explanation to my colleagues.
