I had the honor this week of being interviewed on a local Fox morning show to explain The Cloud. The funny thing is that most people are in some way using cloud technology every day. And although there is considerable overlap with SaaS (software as a service) and cloud technology, it has been growing as a buzz word in the mainstream media over the past year. Thus requiring some light shed on the topic.
So, what is “The Cloud” exactly?
The Cloud is internet based applications, data, file storage… which are stored and served from a distributed internet environment, as opposed to a local environment, like on a personal computer. That’s my one sentence definition.
Check out the video of my interview. Keep in mind this was my first time on TV and it was live. So… I was a bit nervous.
