Introduction

The Internet age is reaching the dawn of a new era where everything can be accessed outside of your computer’s physical limitations. Today’s Internet is full of services ready to provide content instantly.

Delving into how all these services are hosted, you’ll find there is always some mention of the “cloud.” In fact, looking at a lot of services these days, you will find that the “cloud” plays a major part in bringing content to a wide variety of people. The most important characteristic from which end users have benefited is that all content is synced together across multiple platforms – whether it is your PC, cell phone, or tablet.

However exciting all this may be, this “cloud” isn’t exactly anything new; it is more of a buzzword to re-ignite interest in existing technology.
