How did it begin?
The field of cloud computing took birth similar to how most of the revolutionizing domains are created - through an ambitious concept. The concept was forged through the contribution of various imaginative personalities who saw the field of computing for what it could be rather than seeing it as what it was. In 1969, J.C.R Licklider, as he contributed to developing ARPANET, saw the technology for what it could be in the near future. He expressed his ideas to the world. Unfortunately, his vision was limited by the technology of his time. However, it can be argued that the concept had started to grow roots even before J.C.R Licklider set his vision to make the same a reality.
Titans take the lead.
The next innovation in the field of cloud computing came in 2002 when Amazon launched its Amazon Web Services platform that provided organizations with cloud storage, processing, and pre-built templates to integrate within their business. Innovative companies realized the possibilities and decided to use this cloud as a service platform. Owing to the same, the world was graced with today s renowned application platform namely Pinterest and Box.
As the technology developed and more companies started to adopt the same, Google, one of the most vital organizations for the technological community, developed their take on cloud computing as applications referred to as Google Docs and Google Sheets. Using these applications, businesses could now store and create documents within the cloud and could access these documents from anywhere with authorized credentials. This allowed businesses to significantly cut down on resource usage and expenses since there was no need for physical storage devices to store the data on.
Cloud Computing is one of the most scalable technological domains in the current age. Several innovative entities are working to improve the cloud services even as we speak. Accounting for the same, a future where most of our lives are dependent on the cloud seems inevitable. One such prominent platform is Dcirrus, a cloud based storage system. It is conceptualised to deliver secured and cost effective, yet secure solutions to the clients.
