Impact of cloud technology

Cloud technology has literary changed the way we handle everything, particularly from a computational perspective. In this post, we will take a look at this great technology, and discuss the impact it has brought about.

What is cloud technology

Cloud technology has many definitions, with the most common ones losing focus on the primary technology—with complex explanations, which are usually focused on marketing.

The concept of cloud technology is where you get to use computer processing power and storage capacity, which you don’t have on a physical level. For example, if you have a computer with an internal storage capacity of 100GB, and you want to copy images that total to 250GB from an external hard drive to your internal hard drive—then it is impossible. But with cloud technology, you can buy cloud storage, then upload the images there. Whenever you need the images, all you have to do is connect to the cloud and view them on a web browser, or specialized software.

What you have to understand is that you are buying a service that allows you to remotely access computers that are in a remote location via the internet—hence there is no real cloud, just other computers on the other end.

Impact of cloud technology

Cloud technology has brought about a lot of changes, most of them being merits. Here are some of the most significant ones.

Cheap computation infrastructure

Compared to the olden days, it is straightforward for a business to acquire advanced computation facilities without having to buy expensive computer hardware. For instance, instead of a company buying a server to host and facilitate their business, they can just subscribe to a cloud service for a small monthly fee. When the need arises, and the company increases their operations, then the cloud services can be easily scaled up by paying for more resources, downgrades are also possible when needed.


With cloud technology, it has become very easy to collaborate, especially in the office environment. For instance, managers from various departments can update a given file in real time, with no geographical barriers. This is very important especially if different agencies need collaboration.

Better security

Cloud companies will have access to the best security resources.…
