For a person it is a great challenge when he has to manage the files and he has to access them through multiple devices, like office PC, smart phone, notebook, tablet. Imagine a situation when the files are kept in a personal storage and can be accessed from anywhere using Internet. This is what cloud computing comes to work. Cloud computing provides the path for working from anywhere with internet access, thus one doesn’t have to carry his/her work with them.
Cloud Computing with Dropbox application

Users of DropBox can store the data in an online system and then user can access that data from anywhere via internet.

DropBox allows its users to store 2 Gb (giga bits) of data, which can be document, music file i its online storage system.
Benefits to Web Developers
There is huge benefit for the web developers as heavy application based website always need huge bandwidth. The need for huge bandwidth sometime blows the hosting server down. Now imagine a situation when the website is served through multiple servers which have the replicated copy on original data. This will surely increase the speed as the load will get distributed.This thing happen through cloud computing.
One of the major company in the cloud computing market is “Amazon” which provides solutions to various enterprises, companies requiring the Cloud computing. Amazon provides the cloud computing solution through its Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Rackspace is another company to provide the cloud computing solutions.
There are many such companies that provide cloud computing solutions. The important thing to look for is the Data security. The type of data security provided by the cloud solution providers is important. The cloud computing is always vulnerable to attacks and its only the security policies followed by the company safeguard the data.
