Think of the cloud as various file folders in your computer. But instead of living in your desktop, these files are stored on the internet, accessible from anywhere. Anywhere you go with a WiFi connection, your files are with you. That's the promise of the cloud. It allows you to handily store your vacation photos and see them from anywhere, and lets you and a remote colleague collaborate on the same Google Document in real time. Now, the cloud isn't some amorphous mass floating mass in the air above our heads. Indeed, the actual files are stored terrestrially; all the cloud's information — indeed, everything on the internet — lives in massive, Earth-bound servers. Your iCloud photos live on Apple's servers.
HIGH QUALITY CLOUD – UNBEATABLE PRICES
Azure suitability analysis
By: Jonathan Strickland Updated: May 4, If Carlin were to update that routine today, he could make the same observation about computer information. It seems that everyone with a computer spends a lot of time acquiring data and then trying to find a way to store it. For some computer owners, finding enough storage space to hold all the data they've acquired is a real challenge. Some people invest in larger hard drives. Others prefer external storage devices like thumb drives or compact discs. Desperate computer owners might delete entire folders worth of old files in order to make space for new information. But some are choosing to rely on a growing trend: cloud storage.

At Microsoft Ignite, we announced new Azure Migrate assessment capabilities that further simplify migration planning. Virtual servers of any hypervisor or cloud as well as physical servers can be assessed. You can get started with the CSV import feature by creating an Azure Migrate project or using your existing project. Previously, Server Assessment required setting up an appliance in customer premises to perform discovery of VMware, Hyper-V virtual machines VMs , and physical servers. We now also support importing and assessing servers without deploying an appliance. Import-based assessments provide support for Server Assessment features like Azure suitability analysis, migration cost planning, and performance-based rightsizing.
