What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing

Clouds are large computer networks that connect communications, data, applications and computing to devices such as laptops, desktops, phones and tablets. They allow us to search the web, connect to others, share videos, and shop online.

Clouds have fundamentally changed the way we interact with each other and our devices providing large scale connections and efficiency.

Research on Cloud Computing

Fundamental research opportunities have developed by cross-connecting existing fields to understand how we build and use clouds. This extends to social science, social networks, data-driven computation and cloud infrastructure. Research at Cornell investigates networking, consistency, scalability, security, energy efficiency, privacy, social behavior, policy and law.
