Got your head in the clouds?
I was chatting to our marketing chap recently, and in conversation he said that he relies totally on the cloud his business. Now this interested me greatly as I’ve heard a lot of people mention it and thought it would be good to find out more. For instance what does the term “cloud computing” mean, and how can it help small business?
Simon (the marketing chap) pointed me to this article which featured on the BBC website in May 2010 – it explains all about it as well as highlights some of the drawbacks to the “cloud”.
One thing Simon also told me about is how he backs up all his data on the cloud via Dropbox – for FREE! Dropbox allows you to store and share your photo’s, documents, videos – you get 2GB of Dropbox free. If you need more space, 50GB is available for $9.99 per month.

I’d like to know what you think about the “cloud”. Are you using it?
