Cloud Computing has gained global acceptance in 2-3 short years! Infact, very few actually knew what cloud computing was just 5 years back. But today cloud computing is changing how we build our web applications!
According to a recent numbers published by a survey conducted jointly by BitNami, Cloud.com and Zenoss, show that 80% of the companies today already have a cloud computing strategy or are in planning stages right now!
Cloud computing has become so mainstream that Google recently launched a Mobile device or netbook (or Chromebook) that works only on the cloud using only the Chrome Bowser as the Operating System.
Here at trak.in, we use Cloud to store all our static and image files which ensures that you are able to access them at faster speeds. [We recently switched our DNSes to Cloudflare and it has improved site speeds drastically!]
The survey has come out with an interesting infographic on outlook of Cloud Computing.

I was quite surprised to see a particular number – 66% of users plan to use Microsoft Windows as the Operating System on the cloud !
