Episode Description

Cloud computing, or simply ‘cloud’, has transformed our lives in every way, whether you know it or not! It’s everywhere. We use it to listen to music, buy products. And companies use it to run their entire company operations. The Buzz. 1: “I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now From up and down and still somehow It’s cloud illusions I recall I really don’t know clouds at all.” [Joni Mitchell song, 1969, on her “Clouds” album] We’ll clear that up for Joni, because there are different types of clouds for businesses. Public cloud is for companies that want to utilize a shared infrastructure to set up their cloud environment. Private cloud enables a company to set up its own infrastructure in the cloud. Hybrid cloud is for a company that needs a mix of private and public cloud. Today on Ready. Set.
