Cloud computing and its trends

Cloud computing in simple words is a type of computing in which all resources, information and applications are managed in a virtual hosted environment. One great example of cloud computing is Google Apps. This amazing app allows businesses to access different services including document creation/editing, calendar, website hosting and email directly through a web browser without installing them.

According to many highly successful entrepreneurs, expert analysts, and technology firms the future of technology is in the sky. With cloud computing today it is not difficult to touch the sky. Cloud computing is not something new as many companies like Oracle, Microsoft and IBM have been using cloud computing for years within their own business models. But as often happens with the advancement in technology, every company is now using it in order to grow their business. In this article I’ll describe what the top trends are.
