Cloud Devices and Cloud Tabs Explained

For anyone not familiar with cloud computing and BYOD (bring your own device), the idea of cloud devices and next-gen mobile applications may seem foreign. Why is the BYOD trend growing?

Cloud computing was originally terms ‘grid computing’, and much like computers in a grid, nothing is stored in one spot exclusively.

Cloud applications and software as a service solutions use this similar architecture and mindset in those solutions and services. Instead of download or installing an application on your phone or PC, you instead login via the internet, and all of your information, UI and computational power is handled there…in the cloud.

Mobile business applications continue to see success as more and more people turn to next-gen devices, smartphones and cloud devices. These include, as stated, smartphones, but also include tablets, mini-tablets and even some forms of low-storage laptops (you will see these as having hard drives under 100GB for space and cost-savings).

Most of these devices can be used in conjunction with mobile carriers to create a ‘go anywhere, do anything’ environment. And this is the true power of cloud devices and SaaS in the future.
