You’ve heard the term but do you know what it means? Very simply, all your data is stored on a server on the internet. This is therefore accessible from anywhere. There is no need to be in the office to access certain files or applications. The data can synchronise with your local device so that you are able to access it while not connected to the Internet. Cloud based e-mail has existed for some time, from even before the term Cloud was first used. Now, almost all data can be Cloud based, making the on-site server redundant. This makes life easier and more cost effective for organisations to streamline their business and reduce costs.
