Do you know what "cloud computing" is?  Does your company use any cloud products?  We would love to hear what you think of the cloud concept.

You know, I really don't know what cloud computing is.  I think it is software that you use off the internet (yes download an app) but dont own.. disk?  I know it is a hot topic and I "should" be aware on it, but so far I don't.   So with that answer, I am not sure if we use cloud or not at my company.  Some of the sales staff use  safesforce.com.  I actually think that is a cloud product?  I would love to know more about it.

I use cloud computing all the time  From my CRM to accounting, secure backups, document sharing and newsletter software, I use a really wide range of services.

When I left full-time employment I had a huge learning curve about this type of thing and although I'm not expert I am fairly knowledgeable.

The cloud is definitely the wya for companies to go.

Surely this would only work in an IT environment or a business/trading situation where details can be easily shared?

It certainly couldn't operate in my company as information is restricted or secret at various levels.  Depending on the level of secrecy, we have certain rules and policies in place on how we deliver and receive information via email and internet.

In some cases, information cannot even be discussed internally with other departments or with those at others sites in the UK, as well as outside of the UK.

When you are part of a global operation, policies sit at such a high level that local sites have no control and are bound by the rules.

Certain security measures are put into place customized to the users laptop based on their level in the organization and access granted based on users clearance.  Security is very good.

Peaches,

My travellers have to request permission to take a laptop with them when they travel outside the UK.  Even then, the laptop must be "clean" of secret or restricted information.

The nature of our business just wouldn't allow this to happen.  We are locked down by so much red tape because of what we do.

Like I said because of certain restrictions, when you are part of a global organisation, you are bound by the rules.

I see Cloud Computing as the future.  Maybe not for extremely sensative companies, but for other ones.  And personal use.

I started using Amazon's Cloud Music for my music.  What it does is stores my music on their hard drives and I can access it anywhere.  Since my netbok doesn't have a CD drive, I can rip my music at work, put it on the Cloud and acess it anywhere on my netbook (have to be on the internet for this).  And I have an Android phone so I can access it on there too, then I don't have to use my memory on my phone.  Again that takes internet usage, but I have unlimited and only listen during my commute. 

I can see this happening more and more with tablets coming.  These only have a very limited memory (just a bit more then smartphones and a bit less then netbooks).  They also have no CD drive.  Some don't even have a USB drive.  The only way to access anything is either on it's memory or through the internet or some other source.

We are a global organization and use this technology in some applications.  Tight security too.  I guess it just depends on the nature of the business.

I know a virtual assistant who has everything on her dropbox account. She updates documents and set's security access for her clients so they can only access the ones they are supposed to. It limits the amount of data she keeps on her laptop and everyone always has access to the latest versions via the link. It even backs up all her data and has an option to retrieve files if she or a client accidentally deletes it.
