So most of WTC has been strictly about cloud tech or how certain segments can benefit from the cloud. I wanna get a little more personal with this one as Google moves into the social space. On a daily basis I find myself moving more and more to the cloud with my everyday life. I have cut the outlook chord because gmail’s web app is just so much better. I have access to the Google Music beta although I don’t use it. If iTunes went to a complete and true cloud solution I would be on that faster then Steve Jobs could announce it. So as more and more stuff goes to the cloud should your identity join that? Is that what Google is trying to do with it’s new social offering?
We start off whatthecloud.com with a good one. Is Google docs really “cloud”. Our answer is yes. It allows you to work and integrate in real time with multiple people of your own choosing. So lets dive in to how we think this is true “cloud” and why people should move to it.
We haven’t introduced you to our thoughts yet that as it stands today cloud is a more misused word then any other in the tech vocabulary. A VPS (Virtual private server) when put on multiple machines for redundancy is not cloud. Cloud is unending power (also known as cycles), Infinite memory (RAM), and infinite space (Hard Drive).
So lets examine this in the case of Google. I can log into my Google account along with my partners. And in real time we can build a business plan and presentation. Set up our joint password lists and build these together in real time with almost no latency. You have an almost unending storage capacity with no end in sight as Google adds to it every day. This by our definition is “cloud”. And we are proud to say we use it.
