Using computing resources delivered as a service over the Internet is commonly referred to as "Cloud computing". The complex details of the underlying infrastructure is hidden from users so these appear to be "somewhere in the clouds". The most common forms of cloud computing are online backup, remote storage and content servers. An emerging use of cloud computing is the provision of virtual desktops for users.
Providing you have a reliable Internet connection with adequate service levels you can take advantage of such services and simplify your in-house systems considerably. It is important to ensure that your communications infrastructure is resilient enough to ensure a consistent Internet connection, or adequate provision of offline functionality to ensure that Internet outage does not result in business downtime.
