CLOUD COMPUTING


Cloud computing means that people can have access to their digital files and software on the go, with little more needed to access them  than simple input and output devices as well as an internet connection. Amazon has launched two new products. Cloud Drive and  Cloud Player; which allow users to tap cloud computing and store all their music and video files on a network of remote storage facilities. While such bold new products ensure ease and affordability for current users, they also herald a future for any one rich or poor. The poor will be the greatest long term beneficiaries of cloud computing because it eliminates the cost barriers to accessing the digital age. People can opt to use the most basic hardware, amounting to little more than a key board and screen.
