What is Cloud?

"The cloud" is a friendly way of describing web-based computing services that are hosted outside of your organization. When you use cloud-based services, your IT infrastructure resides off your property (off-premises), and is maintained by a third party (hosted), instead of residing on a server at your home or business (on-premises) that you maintain. With Office 365, for example, information storage, computation, and software are located and managed remotely on servers owned by Microsoft. Many services you use every day are a part of the cloud—everything from web-based email to mobile banking and online photo storage. Because this infrastructure is located online or “in the cloud,” you can access it virtually anywhere, from a desktop, PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or other device with an Internet connection.

Development and Testing in Cloud

Now that Microsoft has released SharePoint 2013 and its online counterpart via the latest rev of Office 365, IT decision makers must choose whether to deploy it in-house or use the latest cloud-based iterations of the collaboration platform.

Microsoft has updated the code base in SharePoint 2013, which is the same cut of the software that powers SharePoint Online in Office 365. The latter, of course, includes Exchange and Lync, all delivered in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model.
