The History Of Cloud Computing

Nowadays as technology advances more and more complex technology comes into our daily lives. Technology can really be quite had to understand for most people, and that is why with a little research a better understand of new technology that is available today can truly enrich our lives. The history of cloud computing is an advancing technology that has brought with it many great benefits.


Basically, cloud computing uses the Internet and other central remote serves in order to better maintain applications as well as data. This kind of computing then allows businesses and consumers to use all different kinds of applications without installing anything. This means that as long as a computer has Internet access you will be able to use the application on that computer. This can be very beneficial because then you won’t have to be at a certain computer to get something done. Any computer with Internet access will have access to the application.


Perhaps, none of us is really sure about the true history of cloud computing, but perhaps many people would also agree that this is a product of vision and intelligence.  Maybe we can have glance over the history of the cloud computing. 


Looking back to the mid 90’s to a few internet programs like Yahoo and Google. These were the types of sites that all offered easy to access information on the World Wide Web. These sites rapidly persuaded much of the online communication and involvement we have come to know from such sites as Twitter and Facebook. From the origins of AOL and Yahoo, spurred the mighty Google and this is where computing first really started in the history of cloud computing on the internet. In 2005 Design LLC Cloud Computing bought land in the Dalles of Oregon on behalf of Google to build the first modern server complex on 30 acres of land along the Columbia River. Subsequently, out of this idea backed by these new cloud servers, social media was able to develop soon afterwards. Thus bringing Cloud computing to many people as is seen today. Myspace, Facebook and Twitter in a just a short period of time cam after and these networking apparatus now follow the standard and principle of cloud computing used by businesses today. 


At some point, we shouldn’t be surprised if we see some very large businesses with clouds of their own, on their own property and a number of structured integrators to service their customers’ needs for ever growing bandwidth.

 Cloud Infrastructure

As customers of a cloud infrastructure do not actually own the cloud infrastructure per se, which they basically rent from a provider. The customer will therefore pay the provider for the service, but they will only pay for what they use. This is very efficient and cost effective for the customer since they don’t have any wasteful spending going towards things that you aren’t even using. No money to spend buying hardware or software to start off with either. The economics of such is thus quite favorable to the clients.


One might wonder where the history of cloud computing came from. The history of cloud computing actually goes back even farther than the mid 90’s. It all started with John McCarthy in about 1960. He claimed that one day computation may be organized like a public utility. He had the idea, before it ever started. The company Amazon played a vital role in the history of cloud computing development. Amazon made their data centers ever more modernized. Amazon found that cloud computing to be much more efficient. As a result Amazon was soon followed by other large companies such as IBM and Google. These companies all realized the great benefits that cloud computing have.

You too already receive the benefits that the history of cloud computing has brought, soon though you may actually realize it!
