I have watched some Youtube videos all night to find out the meaning of cloud computing. It started when I wanted to find out the meaning behind cloud computing of  Ubuntu. I have been finding out the definition in wikipedia and website, but they are still making me confuse about the term. I tried to watch more and more videos explaining about the technology. Some videos are quite interesting in the manner they are presented. Check out  What is Cloud Computing? (by salesforce.com) and Cloud Computing Plain and Simple. And the best videos I found is Basic Cloud Computing.

What I understand is cloud computing means you use the service provided by a company, website or provider such as Google Docs and eyeOS from your device such as laptop or netbook with Internet connection to execute some tasks. You can do almost anything similar to what you can do on a normal desktop but you don’t need to install the software. For example, creating a spreadsheet or playing game. So that’s what we call the future of Web 2.0 technology and the services mentioned above are FREE! But if we are going to use this, I think we need a very high speed and stable Internet connection which I think Malaysia is still left behind. However, giant company like Microsoft is also going for the direction of cloud computing. Check out Windows Azure (but ya know, it is not Free).

Let’s explore the future of computing technology… 😉
