What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s local hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet. Cloud computing eliminates needing dedicated server hardware server located at your office. With an online connection, cloud computing can be done anywhere, anytime.
A Cloud Computer Is a Virtual or Cyber server.
Cloud computing uses a powerful remote server located in a very secure location capable of hosting a series of distinct servers. Your computer, in a remote location, logs in to the Cyber Office³ cloud computer to access your files and your programs using a graphical interface. The Cyber Office³ cloud computer will look much like a Microsoft Windows™ based computer. Example: an office manager, using his/her local desktop computer, logs in to their Cyber Office³ cloud computer to perform daily job responsibilities.
A Local Desktop Computer or Host:
The physical (host) computer in which you are using to connect to the Cyber Office³ devices such as Tablets and iPads™ fall in to this category.
A Remote Desktop Server or RDS:
The Cyber Office³ cloud computer.
Devices that are installed on your local (host) computer and redirected to the Cyber Office³ cloud computer over the internet.
Printers that are installed on your local computer will redirect to the Cyber Office³ cloud computer (not all printers will redirect). Redirected printers will show as Printer1 (Redirected 5) in your list of available printers.
Your Local and USB connected drives can redirect to the Cyber Office³ cloud computer.
A Remote Session:
This refers to your remote desktop. You will often here this common phrase: I need to reset your remote session.
