Telecommuting: Everyone Wins Work From Home Cloud Computing Options

Telecommuting: Everyone Wins Work From Home Cloud Computing Options

 

Cloud computing is all the rage

If you have the chance to work from home would you? Many people would say yes, and with good reason. You can make your own hours, dress how you want, be your own boss and pretty much you have life in the palm of your hand. Now let’s come crashing back down to reality. Cloud computing has opened a true work from home opportunity. Many small to midrange businesses have adopted cloud computing as part of their IT department and company structure. What does this does mean for some is a work from home opportunity. Not one where you call the shots, but one that lets you telecommute to work every day.

Opening the door

Any computer becomes a mobile office. Employers host the files, programs and other data needed to make your work, well work. Just log in with your user name and password much like you would an email account and you now have access to all your business applications and other data. With the ability for many of these applications to be run at once without any slowdown the ease of use and the simple design of cloud computing means anyone can use it. Yet if it is so easy, what factors are slowing down the progress of cloud computing?

Bandwagon jumpers

Have it now, the on demand service that cloud computing offers, no more needing the IT department to turn something on or wait for someone to get a program up and running for you. Convenience, work whenever you want to, want to work at 10 at night then go ahead. Get everyone involved; being able to network over multiple networks you’re able to pool resources without any limits. So these seem like great pluses, where is the issue? Security, new regulations will be needed to keep security in check and personal information safe. Servers that host the data will need to be regulated in some way for legal liability. Because of security concerns that range from the simple to major concerns such as person records. Are these fears real? Not real enough to slow down the projected increase of money dedicated into cloud computing from last year to this year.

Who is doing what

Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, IBM, Intel, HP and SAP all have one major thing in common. They are devoting large budgets and high hopes into cloud computing projects. Each one in return is hosting some form of cloud. Many offer the service for free (paid if you want more space) for a limited amount of space. What does this mean? It is like being able to go to the candy store and eat the candy before you decide to buy it. Giving small to midsize companies a chance on seeing how well cloud computing can work for them. As well as giving the common user a chance to be able to file away all those countless pictures of the Christmas party.
