The following are some FAQs that many people have about enterprise cloud computing and what exactly it entails and what it can do for them:

Q: What is Cloud Computing?

A: In it's the simplest definition "cloud computing" is a computer model that entails the practice of using a network of virtual storage devices rather than individual, local servers to make the storing of vast amounts of information. This storing technique makes storing data much easier for companies that it would otherwise (traditionally) be if the company was to store the same amount of information on local, individual servers on their company's premises. Most companies using cloud computing only use 10-15% of the storage available to them through their subscription plan.

Q: What is enterprise Cloud Computing:

A: Enterprise Cloud Computing is computing for enterprises that have provided a breakthrough as far as being a highly-efficient way store information a cost that is much lower to the company without sacrificing the safety and the integrity of the information getting stored.

Companies select these subscriptions based on the amount of storage space they need and can purchase additional space as time wears on if they find that they need it.

The ability for companies to access their data readily/as needed without having to store all information on their premises. Provides the companies who are seeking a secure way to store information while remaining connected to the rest of the virtual world.

Q: What are the basic economics of cloud computing?
