Definition - What does All-Cloud Environment mean?
An all-cloud environment describes a company, organization or individual that uses a Web-based application for every task rather than installing software or storing data on a computer. All-cloud environments are not common, but a move toward this is a long-term goal for cloud computing enthusiasts and cloud capitalists.
There are many potential advantages to an all cloud environment, including the ability to access all your work, programs and other information from any device. However, an all cloud environment is still a relatively new concept and there are many unanswered questions, such as what happens if a cloud provider goes down or out of business. More than likely, the first users to enter an all-cloud environment will be individuals, as businesses have more proprietary data to worry about.
