For those of you who don't know what Google or cloud computing is, it's not hard to comprehend. To start off, I would just like to say that Google is an internet site you go to in order to get information. When you go to www.Google.com, you type in pretty much anything in the search bar and you will get results.
If you are looking to buy something, it lists a bunch of other internet sites revealing information where you can find what you're looking for. For example if you want to buy a gift for your four year old nephew, you might type in Blues Clues DVD's. Blue's Clues DVD's are a nick junior television show little kids love if you didn't already know what it was.
Once you type that in, Google will lead you to numerous websites you can buy a bunch of different versions of Blue's Clues DVD's. Some sites that pop up are amazon.com, e-bay.com and many others.Google is also great for looking up information you need for a school project or research paper. If you type, Bill O'Reiley into the search bar, you will get sites explaining who he is, what he does, and just get the complete biography about him. Google is a great information site and I am proud to say I use it all the time.
As for cloud computing, it involves delivering hosted services over the Internet. The services are divided into three categories consisting of Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service. Inspired by the cloud symbol that is associated in representing the internet in diagrams and charts, is how we got the name cloud computing. High-speed Internet access and a weak economy, brings an uprising of interest in cloud computing.
