“I wandered lonely as a cloud” said the great poet William Wordsworth in 1804.
He was referring to the breathtakingly picturesque vision of a field of thousands of golden daffodils. Just over 200 years later, I find myself treading similar footsteps, wandering lonely in a sea of cloud technology.
In the computer and printer industry, it seems that the cloud is the new golden vision of 21st century computer capabilities.
Is Cloud The Future?
Everywhere I look, I read things about cloud computing, cloud printing and cloud apps. Printer manufacturers are now starting to add cloud compatibility to their printers, such as the new Kodak HERO 7.1 All in One Inkjet Printer, but what exactly is the cloud that is on everyone’s lips?
Cloud Computing – A Short Definition
In it’s very simplest form, cloud computing is a broad term that covers a number of different developments, all involving the internet and using its potential to simplify the way we use our home and business computers and extend their capabilities.
The Cloud simply refers to the internet. Cloud computing is mainly about businesses and individuals using the potential and sheer size of the internet to place more of your material onto the internet and less on PCs or servers that businesses and individuals run for themselves.
