The expression “Cloud Computing” has become a common one in the business world. It was just a few years ago that the technology industry overflowing with predictions that the cloud was going to revolutionize everything. Yet, a few years later, and cloud computing continues to be a commonly misunderstood concept all together.

A recent survey conducted by Wakefield Research revealed that most respondents think the cloud is “an actual cloud, the sky, or something related to weather.” And 51% of all respondents said that they believed that “stormy weather would interfere with their cloud computing.” In another study, 32% of the population still think the cloud “is a thing of the future.”
