How the Cloud Works

How the Cloud Works (Everyday STEM) by Jeanne Marie Ford

Most students use cloud technology every day, but they may have a limited understanding of how it works. This book traces the evolution of cloud computing in relation to other developing technologies, such as telecommunications devices and the internet. Students will gain awareness of the mechanisms of data storage and the increased information available to them through the cloud. They will read about the applications of this technology at school, at home, and in business. They will also learn about recent advances in file sharing and artificial intelligence, with a view toward the future of the cloud.
