The survey also revealed respondents’ concerns with cloud computing technology. Among them were security, interoperability, compliance, reliability, privacy, and cost.
Newman stated, “Although these are logical concerns, they are not necessarily legitimate concerns. The concerns stem from not understanding how cloud computing systems operate.”
“If a business’ in-house network infrastructure is secure and follows best industry practices,” Newman continued, “then that infrastructure will support cloud-based applications with the same level of security. As for interoperability, transferring data via cloud computing is normally fast, easy, and smooth.”
Business Web Hosting Plans says that although there are still kinks to work out, at this point the technology is advancing so rapidly that any problems that exist can be easily resolved.
What is cloud computing?
The term “cloud computing” refers to an advancing technology that uses the Internet for many of the jobs for which individuals and businesses no longer have to their private or business computers.
Newman said, “Without realizing it, many people are probably already using cloud computing services. All web-based email services like Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo! are cloud computing applications.”
Business Web Hosting Plans reports that industry experts believe cloud computing technology is not just the wave of the future, but that it is happening right now. They recommend businesses jump in and get their feet wet, but not without first consulting with professionals who can recommend the best cloud computing providers.
