A Different Look At Cloud Computing

A Different Look At Cloud Computing

Take what you know and have fun with it

Business has locked down the idea of cloud computing. Cloud computing has taken the business world by storm, for sure. Think about it: endless open-ended space, applications, data storage and just about anything else a company could want. But now something a bit more user friendly has come into play – cloud gaming. This now gives a new meaning to how a gamer can game and how information and saved data can be moved and used – cloud computing just got a little brother.

What is it?

Cloud gaming is similar to videos on demand, except with games. This means you no longer have to suffer from restrictions, and that you no longer have to worry if you can afford the next big game on the market. Many of the providers who offer this technology charge a monthly fee, but that fee does not come close to what one of these games would cost you if you bought it new. So, there are no worries about whether your gaming system can handle playing a game, no disks, and no wasted time with downloads. Cloud computing and the technology it uses has opened a whole new generation of ideas and gaming for non-business types.

Want more? Have it!

Smartphones, computers, and even your gaming console all offer some form of cloud computing. Want to play a game at home, save your progress and have your buddy on the other side of the world pick up where you left off? You can. Need to take a flight and want to game while on the move? Grab your tablet and pick up where you left off with your computer. These are simple cloud computing ideas that are now being put to work with gaming. But at this year’s E3, Samsung blew everyone away with their own idea of what cloud computing and cloud gaming should be, introducing a Smart TV designed for cloud gaming. 

This is big

Samsung is now crushing the competition and is expecting that within the next year 40 million homes will be streaming high–end, no-console-needed games over their Smart TV. Think about that; no more needing a game console to play. Why does this matter? As the technology for cloud computing improves, how we use it will change. Yes, because the ideas are new, the costs will be high, but like with anything else, they will level off. Take the 40 million gamers over the next year and double that the year after as the costs start to lower. The lower the costs get, the more people will start to get involved. As a gamer you’re able to experience the best in new games, and as a business person you get to see just how easy cloud computing is and how helpful it can be for your business. And lastly, the common Internet surfer that does not work online or play games on their TV has a great opportunity to see at first hand what they are missing. As the technology improves, so too will the perceptions of it.
