Exploring the Impact of Cloud Computing on Web Design

Giving users the ability to access their personal content from anywhere on the planet, cloud computing has exploded onto the scene, radically revising the way many think about the Internet and technology in general. This powerful resource is believed to hold the key that will allow customers to purchase smaller devices, storing all of their personal data and information remotely on the cloud. Not only will this prove more cost-efficient over the course of the long haul, but this will also keep the risk of data loss minimized. While average web users will no doubt feel the impact of the cloud, web designers are also impacted by the advent of this technology. In fact, cloud computing could rewrite how designers create digital content.



Running Software and Applications from the Cloud

While effective and intuitive design requires a talented designer who understands the ins and outs of the web, even lauded design professionals would be powerless without the many software programs and applications that allow a website to be brought to life. Many of these programs consume massive amounts of memory and space, making it imperative for web designers to utilize modern computers that can handle the load. The cloud could change this equation, making it possible to use dynamic software remotely.



Applications run from the cloud have already reached the consumer market, with Google long providing word processing to its users through applications run on its servers. Competitors are just beginning to develop other software programs that can be accessed through traditional web browsers, eliminating the need for users to download and install software of their own. As this technology advances, many believe it will allow advanced design software to be installed on the cloud and run remotely on computer systems. This will open up the door for designers who desire mobility and more practical design solutions.


Storing Design Work Remotely

In addition to relying on software packages located in the cloud, modern designers will likely find themselves increasingly turning towards server-based storage options to safeguard their work, instead of using physical hard drives. Digital storage comes with an assortment of benefits, allowing web users to easily back up information to multiple locations. Not only is this convenient, but it is also incredibly affordable. It is likely that designers will quickly jump on board, using digital options to keep their work protected. This has the added benefit of allowing work to be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection.



Although cloud computing is certainly an exciting technology, this resource is still in the first phases of its development. As technology companies create tools that seamlessly connective with cloud-based services, the impact of this trend will no doubt trickle into every area of the Internet as a whole. Web designers will no doubt be affected by the transition, as the cloud opens up a whole new world of opportunity. By allowing designers to work from anywhere and run complicated applications at the touch of a button, cloud computing may be one of the most significant influences the design community has ever felt.
