Cloud computing

Illustration – Cloud computing

Devices, especially mobile devices on which we process data and use apps, have become an indispensable part of our professional and private lives. Not only documents, photos, videos, and music, but also software should be available on all devices at any time. We want to share and edit our content with others.

This is possible with cloud computing. This IT infrastructure, also known as “data cloud”, enables access to a pool of IT resources such as storage space and software, as well as databases, infrastructure or computing power via a computer network. Data and applications are then no longer stored locally on one device, but on a remote server. The cloud is accessed via client software, browsers or apps.
