Cloud Encyclopedia: a quick guide to the cloud

Cloud Encyclopedia: a quick guide to the cloud

Awareness of cloud services, their purpose, advantages and disadvantages is often superficial and fragmented in our region. That is why Cloud encyclopedia was created. A series of 17 articles from the ORBIT team, which will reliably introduce everyone to the area of cloud IT services.

As ORBIT, we have been intensively involved in cloud services for years. We apply our 30 years of experience in this modern technological aspect of our customers’ IT lives. Every year we implement several large and small IT change projects, which are closely related to the cloud environment (for example this one ).

During our daily contact with our customers, we became aware of a previously unheard demand for a guidebook to the cloud world. For many managers and IT specialists in the Czech organizations is difficult to find time and reasons for self-study of lengthy English articles (not to mention obtaining certifications).

The aim of this series is not to present all cloud services in the detail (after all, YouTube is full of the detailed material), but to help readers understand the services, know their purpose and provide an expert view on the options offered (at least in terms of the services of the major providers in our region, i.e. Microsoft and Amazon).

The articles below are written in Czech language.
