What it Means the Cloud Is Someone Else’s Computer

The cloud is someone else’s computer.

It’s a catchy and widely popular line, regardless of its meaning and implications. But it’s typically used to emphasize its cons and negative connotations, such as data in the cloud may not be safe or may disappear.

However, there are also pros. If the cloud is someone else’s computer, they’re likely less sloppy with backups and security. And they have a team of skilled technicians and engineers who work around the clock to fix issues while you sleep, without the need for you to lift a single finger.

By the way, your money is data in someone else’s bank.
