Cloud Technology

The Internet was initially conceived as a fail-proof network that could connect computers together and be resistant to any one point of failure. Today’s cloud technology takes that one step further to include data and applications therefore shrinking the demand on IT resources.
 
Cloud technology is invariably tied to the shift from desktops to mobile devices. Data and applications can be conveniently stored and accessed through the Internet, cutting down on the overhead needed by the device. One example of a device that relies on cloud technology for applications and storage is the Chromebook. Many educational institutions are adopting cloud technology to replace textbooks and homework handouts, which means that future web users will be very comfortable navigating this digital space.
