Internet progression from basic web servers to Cloud Computing Powers

Updated on May 17, 2016

Cloud Computing has emerged!

The web changed everything literally over night

With the advent of online advancements of the Cloud aka 'Cloud Computing'. Both web and mobile technologies have been improving at a rapid pace for users today, and especially in terms of how the internet works. Anywhere from consumerism for millions of internet businesses or companies both large, and small; to how people are learning to adapt to its social factors. We as online networking users, bloggers, writers, people worldwide etc... have all come a long way since the inception of the world wide web, and humanity has achieved much progress in the overall functional purpose and use of the web as a whole.

Anyone with an internet connection and a PC or smart phone, can make as many purchases online, for literally anything the digital world currently has to offer, you can work, play games, communicate, and try to rule the cyber world using the web today.

This has created an all evasive movement in the field of E-Businesses. Now many large and small companies are joining in on the networking frenzy, and its opened up the doorways to the individual consumer as well. Pretty much anyone can own a online business and seek to benefit from the web, and its conversion to online everything with companies converting to cloud computing.

Cloud Computing is definitely the key culprit behind the greatest shift in our worlds economic global structure, since the industrial revolution. Huge computing companies are currently at the receiving end of all these transitional movements to online everything, but many others have figured ways to find benefits as well.

The inner and outer workings

If you notice the way the internet works today, it all appears to be very different from even 2 years back. Things have progressed almost over night, with 100's & 1000's of new websites sprouting out every day, like amazing colorful florescent light bulbs of creative arts. Google raging its war against Facebook, and now Pinterest entering the stage, and a new game player in town, known as Klout.

Online capabilities are in high demand, and each web designer seems to keep spewing out many things to offer users such as audio / video, awesome articles, 3D graphics, breath taking images, and from almost everywhere on the planet.

Web design has become the method in which to get across messages that would otherwise just be dreams, unhatched dreams still stuck in the creatively explosive minds of young and old of today. We should give thanks to all the computer engineers, such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and so many more, that make these digital impressions possible, so that people like Mark Zuckerburg can use their intelligence to sew together some amazing web applications and powerful networks for people to benefit from using.

Information age pays hugely

We now are in an age of information transfer at it's fastest rate ever, the wireless device age has met the web. Cyber life has taken it's full development and the center stage worldwide thus far, with such things as social networks, and professional networking.

Unfortunately though things like SEO (search engine optimization), and coding of websites or programming are beginning to get its place in the back burner sort of speak, for the average user, mainly due to the ease at which developers are making web design today, with the introduction of Drag & Drop, and HTML code embedding tools.

Web designers today, are even giving away their lines of code like its candy, so that people can experiment, and come up with amazing web designs in a more free open source environment, as opposed to a very exclusive not so well known complex one. This has opened up huge avenues for online businesses trying to earn an honest buck, and made it possible for everyone to benefit from.


File storage moves online - Let's enter the Cloud

Huge networks dedicated to file sharing from pc to pc, is currently being offered to any online user almost in every country, state, and township around the globe. This has posed to the average web surfer a new type of way to communicate to friends, family, colleagues, and people they never met.

Icloud by Apple is one, Amazon Cloud Drive, Microsoft Skydrive, and Dropbox are just some examples of the true online powers behind the infamous Cloud Computing concept & file sharing or online data storage web resources, we currently have at our disposal today. To connect with such network sharing functions, and potential is as simple as creating an online profile and logging in.

This information evolution involving the computer and mobile phone device has transformed the way people do things entirely today. The ways you can get the Internet to work for you is simply amazing, especially the part where you can conduct business transactions online wired or wireless.

Data Centers as seen in the image provided above, have emerged onto the scene's with things such as grid computing (power computing), which has taken shape, and currently has become truly massive storage facilities for digital information worldwide. Powerful monopolizing computer companies such as Intel have been manufacturing for some time. These huge powerful computer systems are capable of housing vast amounts of information, and help website owners, and big industries to expand their overall effectiveness, when it comes to server space, bandwidth capacity, and networking speeds for a single or multiple web locations.

      While much of the technical stuff can go over my head, your writing has a good way of helping me understand more. You are quite right that computing has changed a lot even just in the last 2 years.
