Head in the Computing Clouds

cloud04_small1You might have heard the term cloud computing. Since computing is sometimes tough with our feet touching the ground, how do we manage computing in the clouds?

Cloud computing is generally viewed as supercomputing power online. Since most people are only armed with a normal PC, not a supercomputer, cloud computing links many computers together creating a kind of supercomputer via the net. Data processing functions are then split up across multitudes of machines specially networked together.

Think of it this way – the sum of all those computers together becomes greater than the value of the individual parts. 

Cloud computing is not totally mainstream yet, but is gaining traction amid networking and security issues. In the meantime, we’ll keep computing on the ground as we await Web 3.0!
