Updated on February 19, 2015

"Previous year, Intel,Yahoo and HP announced a joint test centre for cloud computing education and reasearch. Last August IBM announced a $360m data center in North Carolina to provide Cloud Computing facility to their clients."

So Who Are the Top Cloud Computing Companies Today?

Here in the Southern India the sky seems quite clear yet the web is getting filled up everywhere with clouds.Yes waiting to get your hands on cloud computing? Well it's already there with you!There is a lot of confusion because everyone is tagging what they do with the word 'cloud'.It's a buzzword for the moment.Suddenly, certification courses on Cloud Computing have also started sprouting up everywhere.

However the general meaning is that your stuff is simply thrown out in the Internet rather than being stored on your laptop or server.Thus your data wont be lost even if your laptop is stolen by secret agents or the server had been destroyed by a missile.You can always access it back in the web from anywhere.A good example is the Google docs, the word processor included with it.Google has designed their Chrome browser, which acts itself as a google homepage. Several other Cloud Computing Companies have now rolled out their services to organizations around the globe.

Free Cloud Storage!

If you'd like to have a basic taste of cloud computing then you can check out the free service of Dropbox. Dropbox is software that syncs your files online and across your computers.Put your files into your Dropbox on one computer, and they'll be instantly available on any of your other computers online. Storage up to 2 GB if free you can upgrade if necessary at a later time.

Amazon Web Services

Finding the best Cloud Computing Companies to Invest in 2015

The Google's under-development Chrome OS termed Chromium is also aimed at dominating the cloud.It is said to be designed for users who always want to be online.Only the apps supported by them can be used by the client.It would be just like an Auto-Update which you can't turn off.

The cloud fever has hit other techno-gaints also. Previous year, Intel,Yahoo and HP had announced a joint test centre for cloud computing education and research. Last August IBM announced a $360m data center in North Carolina to provide Cloud Computing facility to their clients.

Anyhow, all are not happy about the clouds. Richard Stallman, the founder of Free Software Foundation and the GNU operating system creator, says that the cloud computing is simply a trap aimed at forcing more people to buy into locked, proprietary systems that would cost them more and more over time.But as all the leading companies like IBM,Amazon,Googl,Yahoo & HP have taken their initiative it's a doubt weather the industries can resist their urge to join the cloud for much long. By 2014 cloud computing compines are expect to grow rapidly. This article will be also useful for potential investors carfully watching the best cloud companies to invest in 2015.

      Great Hub. I think Richard Stallman is off with his concept of cloud computing as a trap. He fails to recognize the potential for small businesses to utilize fully fledged IT managed services without having to take on a large amount of risk.
