How Would We Define Cloud? What Exactly Is A Cloud? What Do We Get Out Of The Cloud?

You must have heard about the terms like “Moved In Cloud” but what do you understand by cloud and how does it works? A cloud is a data center in which the companies can save their stuff which can be accessed anywhere conveniently. The data is only accessed by the company or the group of people who are authorized to access it. Apart from the authorized people, no other person can access or move inside the cloud.

The cloud trend is on high now as people have shifted to work from home. Cloud is coming in handy in accessing the data from anywhere to anywhere. In the last year, we have seen a dramatic digital transformation of the cloud. Let’s have a look at them.

Employees work from the comfort of their home and the flexibility to work follows. It has also been seen that since the traveling hours are removed, the employees are giving more time than the usual 8 hours saving the cost of electricity, extra chai, staff boy and a lot more.

According to the survey, in the summer of 2020, almost 50% of employees were working from home and the number will grow 14% more. Now as things seem to fall back and the reopening is soon going to happen, people will get back to offices for work but not all. More than 60% of companies are not willing to pull back the work from home arrangement but are willing to put 60% of employees in permanent work from home arrangement.

Challenges Faced In Work From Home
