Working in the cloud, a concept that has become fashionable in recent times and that brings to mind memories of dumb terminals and other items that failed to prevail in its day. Basically, it comes to moving the implementation capacity and our data from local computer to the network.
Examples of this are applications like Google Docs, which we bring to our office suite browser or use webmail instead of local applications. And while this may have many advantages, such as being able to work from any terminal, also has its drawbacks because the browser is still a very different platform to that of a local computer on which to run applications.
Despite this there are many players in this scenario, that this will increase when Microsoft Windows Cloud.
Few details have been given for the moment on Windows Cloud, which will be an operating system designed to provide the ability to work in the cloud. Not be focused on users, but to service providers and developers, to facilitate the creation of such applications.
Microsoft has always gambled more to the concept of software services, where data can be stored on the Internet but the applications are still running in the local. And quite logical, since local applications are still their main source of income.
Moreover, if all our applications to operate within a browser, would still have the sense to work on Windows? Any operating system we used to access them.
Will be around in a month when you are behind that is exactly Windows Cloud, but one thing we can safely, Microsoft is not going to be sleeping on its laurels, even though many think it is, and remains one of the main opponents in this battle.
