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? And what are some cloud devices you can use in your SaaS business model and under your bring your own device policy?

Cloud tablets, cloud devices and cloud computing devices

How does cloud computing work?

Cloud computing uses an infrastructure and architecture that enables data to be spread across multiple device (servers) to leverage speed, storage and system resources. 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.

Work from your phone

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).

Work from your phone on your mobile device, cloud tablet or next-gen device

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. No longer with appointments and lengthy meetings need to be conducted in a hot, stuffy boardroom. Instead, using cloud apps, cloud hosting providers and various forms of cloud computing services, your work is where ever you are.

Small Business Mobile Device Security

Whether you are part of a corporation, or a small business, your organization needs a bring your own device policy, as soon as possible. This can include the types of devices, whether for mobile cloud computing, or cloud based software you are running on a laptop or PC. People can and will want to use their smartphones, cloud tablets and more within your organization.

The more defined your organizations’ BYOD policy is, and more secure your SaaS business model, the more useful your organization will be at meeting clients’ needs. Cloud devices and cloud tablets can work in your organization, as long as you make your bring your own device work with your policy.
