Cloud Computing has been implemented and accessed by almost 89 per cent of population in the world today. The cloud has been adopted in each and every industry and the benefits have been acquired by enterprises and individuals. Many organizations have opted for cloud services to store their critical data because they now know how secure cloud can be.
Earlier, there were many questions raised against the technology and its application in businesses as everybody was skeptical regarding the security of data on cloud. Throughout the years, cloud technology has proved everybody wrong and established how easily cloud can benefit storage and access of data from anywhere and from any device.
A specific space on the server allows you to store data and retrieve it whenever it is needed. This technology has saved a lot of costs, improved business efficiencies and provided huge competitive advantage over organizations that do not use cloud services. Data on cloud can be accessed remotely through any device which is connected to the internet which is one of the major benefits of this technology.
A relatively new term which is Mobile Cloud Computing, is on the rise and the implementation and popularity around it is rising. The very existence of mobile phones will drive the trend of mobile cloud computing. Now-a-days almost every individual has a smartphone and knows how to use every feature of it. As smartphones are able to run multiple high-end applications, cloud-based applications are also available on the phone as it can connect to your cloud storage to store and retrieve data. Mobile cloud computing completely makes use of cloud computing to deliver applications to certain mobile devices.
Smartphones are not powerful like cloud infrastructure but they at least provide a platform which can make use of a cloud infrastructure to make use of powerful processing power and storage facilities which are not a part of a mobile device. Mobile-based cloud applications can be used remotely using flexibility and speed through the help of the cloud’s computing power and data storage capabilities.
