Cloud Computing

Cloud computing relies in the internet to transfer and store information rather than a server or a hard drive. it uses networks of servers to spread out the work load and maximize the power. It is becoming popular in small businesses as a means of enabling resources to be easily shared among computers. It's a good fit for Adome Creative Suite 6 as well as many other softwares.
