Windows 8 – Business and Cloud Computing Improvements


The more information that comes out about the Windows 8 operating system, the better it looks for business. The majority of business is already using Windows, and most applications are built around it. Apple has never been for business, and there is no other operating system that can supply what business needs.

The majority of managed and dedicated server technology is built for Windows-based operating systems. Everything related to business and computers is Windows-based, and there is a lot going on behind the scenes that just about all of us don’t understand. The majority of internet architecture is designed and works best with Windows. Windows 8 is going to make further changes to the whole way we do things on the internet.

•    Cloud Computing. We are all using a certain level of cloud computing with everything we already do. Gmail is an excellent example of that. If you have a managed server for your company data-base, you are using cloud computing in a controlled manner – you know where your server is. True cloud computing is provided by companies like Google (and the Chromebook), Apple (iCloud), and soon we will see a huge range of cloud computing services to be provided by Microsoft. The most famous application Office, which we all use, is available as Office365, and provides a full cloud-experience for users. The application is web-based, and that includes storage, access and retrievability. Collaboration is the way of the future. Sending files you have worked on is a way of the past.

•    Windows Server. Window Server 8 virtual machines are designed to help business to build bigger private cloud computing environments. Microsoft is stating the new server design will allow a huge amount of flexibility, a greater amount of critical workload because of a high number of virtual processors, while maintaining a higher level of fault tolerance without additional hardware requirements. If they deliver on these claims, business servers, managed and dedicated servers will be able to handle much more than they ever have, and it should be cheaper to do.

•    Applications. We have seen a growth in the number of cloud computing-based applications, such as Office365, because Windows will allow applications built with HTML5, the language normally reserved for the internet and browser based applications (namely websites), we will see a greater number of web-based applications come on the market. While normal applications will still run on Windows 8, it is predictable all new applications will be constructed with HTML5. This means even more cloud computing and cross-platform applications. They will become the norm.

Cloud-based computing and the Windows upgrade are intertwined. Collaboration and sharing are about to become the norm. Many people have access to simple cloud computing tools, and yet they do not know them, and they do not know the advantages of using them. You can learn more about this by accessing the features inside Gmail, such as Google Docs, or similar features inside Windows Live.

  1. That all sounds way too confusing for me Warren.

    A couple years ago we upgraded my Mom’s computer and at that time we were stuck with Vista. I hate that operating system and since I don’t use it I find it more and more difficult to locate stuff when I’m on her computer. I sure hope Windows 8 goes back to being more user friendly. I probably can get away with another couple years on the computer I currently have. I’ll pray that I do at least.

    Thanks for this update.

  3. Hello there Warren,

    I’m kinda intrigued about windows 8. Is it out in the market now or not yet? So it’s features are way better than windows 7? I am currently using windows 7 and I’m definitely satisfied with it. The above features of windows 8 are also convincing. I have another laptop with me in windows vista and I’m planning to upgrade it to windows 7, but I guess I have to wait for windows 8. Thanks for the info!

  4. Windows 8 is surely better than its predecessors! I especially like the fast navigation. Further Win 8 uses very less resources!!

    I can’t wait to see that in Windows 8 when it is released….

    I like the feature that Office365 will be easily understood by the public….

  6. What a load of rubbish. Only Windows is good for business? Let’s ask Apple which operating system they use for running their business! What about ALL those web hosting companies that use CentOS to power their Linux servers? How about the many countries and organisations around the world that use Linux for everything! As an SEO consultant, I prefer Linux (and two major SEO applications run easily on Ubuntu Linux). I use LibreOffice which does EVERYTHING I need and there is nothing I want for .. perhaps if I was into movie production Linux wouldn’t be my first choice, but then neither would Windows! For accounting purposes, I run a cloud app called Kashflow (http://www.kashflowonline.co.uk) which beats SAGE hands down for SMEs. As a serious photographer, I use GIMP – I find it much better and quicker than Photoshop.

    In summary, I can’t think of one app which I’d desperately need that runs exclusively on Windows.
