What is the cloud ? What is a cloud ?
The term “cloud” refers to Internet-accessible servers as well as the software and databases that
on those servers. Cloud servers are housed in data centers worldwide. Users and businesses who
cloud computing do not have to operate physical servers or run software programs on their own
Because computation and storage take place on servers in a data center rather than locally on the
user device, users may access the same files and programs from nearly any device. This is why,
user logs in to their Instagram account on a new phone after their old phone breaks, they will
discover their previous account intact, complete with all of their photographs, videos, and chat
history. It is the same with cloud email services such as Gmail or Microsoft Office 365, as well
cloud storage providers such as Dropbox or Google Drive.
How does cloud computing work?
Cloud computing is made feasible by a technique known as virtualization. Virtualization enables
development of a simulated, digital-only “virtual” computer that acts like a real computer with
hardware. A virtual machine is the technical word for such a computer. When correctly designed,
machines on the same host computer are sandboxed from one another, so they do not communicate at
and files and programs from one virtual machine are not accessible to the other virtual
despite the fact that they are on the same physical machine.
Virtual machines also make better use of the hardware that houses them. By operating many virtual
machines at the same time, one server becomes many servers, and a data center becomes a network
centers capable of serving multiple businesses. As a result, cloud providers may provide access
servers to considerably more clients at once than they could otherwise, and they can do it at a
Even if individual servers fail, cloud servers in general should remain online and accessible at
times. Cloud companies often backup their services across many computers and geographies.
What is VoiP ? (Voice Over Internet Protocol)
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), is a technology that allows you to make voice calls using a
broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line. VoIP services
voice into a digital signal that can be transmitted over the Internet. If you dial a standard
number, the signal is transformed to a regular phone signal before reaching its destination.
VoIP allows you to call from a computer, a dedicated VoIP phone, or a standard phone linked to a
adaptor. Furthermore, wireless “hot spots” in airports, parks, and cafés allow you to connect to
Internet and may allow you to utilize VoIP service wirelessly.
