Cloud Computing – How it all works



so imagine you have a dog and your dog's name is Frank it's a strange dog name but just go with it you and Frank are best pals you go on walks together Frank always walks faster but still you really love Frank a lot you only have one photo of Frank though this goofy shot of Frank at his birthday party drilling on the cake and because you love this weirdly named dog so much your word you might lose this photo so you upload the photo your favorite photo to one of your favorite photo websites like Flickr Facebook or Picasa and without realizing it you just started cloud computing but what does that mean when you put Frank's photo online you could picture a giant cloud coming down to vacuum up this photo off your laptop then the photo of Frank birthday hat and all lives up in the cloud until you need to look at it again you log on to Flickr or Facebook in there's Frank you can see him from wherever you want from home from work even on your phone in case you start missing Frank during your lunch break at first the cloud seems like magic but it's not the photo of Frank isn't flying around in the sky Frank's photo actually lives in a secret warehouse full of computers these warehouses are called data centers or server farms and they're popping up all over the world just like crops inside one of the computer warehouses there are rows and rows of refrigerator-sized computer towers that are way more powerful than your home computer it's hard to know exactly where your photo of Frank may be once it's in the cloud that's because it may be in a dozen of these warehouses all at once Frank may be chilling in Paris or hanging out in India there's really no way to know for sure you just have to trust a web company like Google or Microsoft to keep Frank safe there are a bunch of reasons to do this the first is that well you only have one photo of Frank it's on your laptop and if that laptop breaks if an alien comes to steal the data or if your apartment melts when a volcano erupts you're out of luck no more Frank no more memories but when Frank's in the cloud he's stored not just in one place but all over the place so you're less likely to lose him you also can access Frank's photo from anywhere you can send a link to some of your friends so they can see Frank too that's just one of the many powers of computing and it's not just you and Frank entire businesses are running in the cloud there are plenty of reasons to be scared of the cloud too but for now you decide to trust the cloud as backup if Frank's happy then you're happy you

    so if one of those data sites got destroyed, wouldn't all of the files and pictures be lost?

    Your video was very helpful and I really loved how it was done. The hand drawn illustrations were awesome and you simplified the cloud to something quite simple. I never knew how the cloud really worked so thank you for making it easy and fun to watch. It is kinda scary to think that if something gets uploaded that it never really goes away it will always be floating between data centers, so now people have to be careful with what they upload.
