When it comes to Hybrid IT and Cloud computing they work together. As the term hybrid IT means that the company is using both in house and cloud computing services, this way they are still able to experiment with cloud computing while still having a centralized approach. Definition
Cloud computing is a type of computing that relies on sharing computing resources rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications (Webopedia). The cloud gives you the ability to share your information over many devices and systems, by them being in a “cloud”. Innovators
In my research I found that the inventor of “cloud computing” really is still unknown, as many people claim to be the first company to have come up with it. According to an article that ITworld published it states that Google’s Eric Schmidt was the first one to bring up the cloud and gave him the credit for it. However, the article Technology Review article in 2011 suggested the oldest use of "cloud computing" talks about how the earliest use of cloud computing may have been in 1996 at Compaq offices (ITworld). All of these make suggestions about cloud computing, but there seems to be no real proof as to who actually came up with the idea and created it, as they all mainly just talked about what cloud computing is. Having the cloud is almost like having a back up, although a back up is always better you know that most of your information will stay in the cloud and you will be able to retrieve it from a different device if the one you are using at the time crashes or are unable to load something. A little bit more about Hybrid IT
After having some information about cloud computing and what it is all about gives you a little bit more of an understanding to hybrid IT, which as stated earlier is using both cloud computing as well as having a more centralized approach to the IT part of the company. According to an article on Search Cloud Computing, there are three forces...
