What is the Cloud?

Recently when at a demonstration for a new potential product, during the break a colleague asked me what the cloud was.  It seems that a quite a few library staff keep on hearing that wonderful new library systems are being stored in the cloud but are very unsure of what this term actually means. 

 

Steve Job yesterday launched the iCloud, so for anybody who doesn’t know what the cloud is and would like a simple explanation please take a look at this beginners guide from the Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2011/jun/06/cloud-computing-apple
