51% of us believe weather can affect cloud computing.

The forecast calls for a high chance of confusion where this tech tool is concerned. A recent survey of 1,000 Americans conducted by mobile solutions company Citrix revealed that more than half of those polled thought a little rain could adversely affect access to their cloud-based content. In fact, a majority had no idea what the cloud actually is. The National Institute of Standards and Technology defines it this way: “a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources…” Still a little foggy? You might be using the cloud without even realizing it, says computer science professor Zhiqiang Lin of The University of Texas at Dallas. “When you check Gmail on your smartphone, cloud computing is at work,” Lin says. “This is because your email is stored on a remote server that you can access at any time.” Clearly you’re more tech savvy than you thought.
