This past week at the XChange Event in San Antonio, Texas, many IT and business experts brought up this popular topic.

Grazed from The ChicagoTribune.  Author: Editorial Staff.

Cloud computing has become a popular buzzword and tool for businesses. But what is it all about?  Although it's often thought of as an obscure entity, the cloud is actually a collection of interconnected servers that are available to users through a network. Basically, cloud computing allows users to store and access data and programs over the Internet opposed to the computer's hard drive. This means that they won't have to constantly upgrade software and programs, and always have a copy of their data should they ever experience an IT disaster.

This gives businesses the ability to cut back on unnecessary server and energy usage. Decreasing a business' energy usage is beneficial for both their budget and the environment...

Cloud Computing: Silver Peak Infographic Reveals Smarter Approach to Branch Office IT

Though proponents of this approach tout simplified deployment, it often forces organizations to double or even triple their capital expenses while constraining their options...
