Tristan Gwinnell, Cloud Solutions EMEA, Avnet, takes a look at what cloud really means

If you’re a business user it could be a cloud-hosted application. If you run a datacentre it could be a way of optimising hardware. The list goes on.

All of these are types of cloud – essentially a means of providing computer hardware and software via the internet. In ‘technology years’ the cloud has been around for a long time.
