  1. You just nailed it by explaining it in the easiest way possible. Thank you so much. And I also saw it now, 10 years later 🙂

  2. SOMEBODY ASKED ME WHAT IS CLOUD COMPUTING..

    CLOUD COMPUTING IS THE GAME-CHANGER IN THE IT INDUSTRY . MY ELDER SON IS IN THIS BUSINESS

    CLOUD IS JUST A METAPHOR FOR THE INTERNET. … WHEN YOU STORE DATA ON OR RUN PROGRAMS FROM THE HARD DRIVE, THAT'S CALLED LOCAL STORAGE AND COMPUTING.

    CLOUD COMPUTING IS THE PRACTICE OF USING A NETWORK OF REMOTE SERVERS HOSTED ON THE INTERNET TO STORE, MANAGE, AND PROCESS DATA, RATHER THAN A LOCAL SERVER OR A PERSONAL COMPUTER.

    THREE DECADES AGO, I WAS SHIP CAPTAIN IN A US READY RESERVE FLEET MERCHANT COMPANY .. THEY HAD SUCH DEEP POCKETS THAT THE GOTRA SUPERINTENDENT WOULD COME ON THE SHIP AND TELL " CAPTAIN, DONT BE SO THRIFTY. I AM AUTHORISING YOU TO SPEND 10,000 USD TO BUY PAINTINGS FOR THE SHIPs ALLEYWAYS"

    AND KNEE JERK I WOULD REPLY BACK– "NO, I WONT ALLOW MY SHIP TO LOOK LIKE A WHOREHOUSE.. THIS IS A TANKER . MINDSETS ARE IMPORTANT "..

    THE COMPANY HAD PAID GOOD MONEY TO BUY A SOFTWARE CALLED ULYSSES.. IT WAS LYING UNUSED.. I THOUGHT ABOUT A REVOLUTIONARY CONCEPT CALLED "VIRTUAL TEAMING".. I HAD A HARD TIME MAKING CUNTS UNDERSTAND WHAT I MEANT..

    MY COMPANY THINKERS CRIED " AS USUAL CAPT VADAKAYIL IS MAKING AN ASS OUT OF US.. HE KNOWS THAT WE CANT OUT THINK HIM"..

    SO I WROTE THE POST BELOW.. THEN TEN YEARS AGO I PUT IT AS A BLOGPOST — WORD BY WORD..

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.com/2010/11/virtual-teaming-capt-ajit-vadakayil.html

    MY VIRTUAL TEAMING CONCEPT WAS PRIMARILY TO BUST THE SILO MENTALITY -WHICH IS A DETERRENT TO TEAM WORK DYNAMICS.

    THIS IS EXACTLY THE CONCEPT USED IN CLOUD COMPUTING WHICH CAME TWO DECADES LATER ..

    TODAY CLOUD COMPUTING IS THE LATEST BUZZ .. IF YOU HAVE CLOUD COMPUTING SKILLS , YOU ARE A BLUE EYED BOY..

    The US Department of Defense (DoD) has its critical data hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

    Microsoft’s cloud offering Azure hosts the business data of most of the Fortune 500 companies.

    TODAY THE CLOUD COMPUTING MARKET IS NEARING 100 BILLION USD..

    FOR CLOUD COMPUTING TO SUCCEED IT HAS TO TAKE HELP FROM AI.. IN FACT CC AND AI ARE LIKE TWO POLES OF THE SAME MAGNET..

    WITH CYBER SECURITY AND CLOUD COMPUTING GOING HAND-IN-HAND, IT WILL BECOME EASIER FOR ORGANIZATIONS TO COMBAT CYBER-ATTACKS AND ENSURE THE SAFETY OF DATA..

    AS THE NUMBER OF CLOUD IMPLEMENTATIONS INCREASE AND BUSINESSES START MOVING THEIR WORKLOADS TO THE CLOUD, CYBER SECURITY AUTOMATICALLY BECOMES A PART OF THE PROCESS TO SECURE THE DATA AND MAKE IT EASILY ACCESSIBLE..

    OUR INDIAN EDUCATION SYSTEM IS STILL IN THE DINOSAUR AGE..

    PRAKASH JAVEDEKAR DID NOTHING AS A EDUCATION MINISTER IN MODIs FIRST TERM.. NOW HE IS I&B MINISTER CUM ENVIRONMENT MINISTER..

    PRAKASH JAVEDEKAR THRIVES BECAUSE HE IS THE MIDDLEMAN BETWEEN MODI AND HIS JEWISH MASTERS WHO RUN THE DEEP STATE ..

  3. My university requires me to watch this video and I gotta say, it's really cool how you used paper and drawings to convey the message, made things a lot easier because I am a visual learner, cheers for the info mate!

  4. BUT cloud is a just also a server somewhere here in the earth right? it is not literally in the space or atmosphere (lol). So the short explanation is youre just using someones HUGE server services?? please enlighten me. 🙂

  5. This is the most awesome video I have seen so far I wish my computer teacher would teach me like this …..😊😉😀
