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.

Redirection:

Devices that are installed on your local (host) computer and redirected to the Cyber Office³ cloud computer over the internet.

Printer Redirection:

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.

Drive Redirection:

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.
