What is Cloud+?

The term Cloud refers to the distribution of computing services and IT resources on the web such as data storage, processing or transmission. The great characterization of this technology is the ability to request each of these individual things on demand through the use of the internet and without having to download programs or occupy memory on PC. Atother it is but a “cloud” of data, information and services always accessible, from any device anywhere, as long as you have a connection to the Network. This model implies the logic of fruiting”rather than acquisition. The customer pays only what they use, cutting down the investments for the purchase and management of an IT infrastructure, focusing professionalism and resources on the pursuit of business goals.
