Going Rugged in the Cloud: Enhancing the Efficiency of Rugged Tablet PCs

What is Cloud Computing?

“Cloud computing” stands as the next big development in IT – Juniper Research believes it will grow a staggering 88% from 2009 to 2014 -- but not everyone understands the term or its implications for rugged devices. In the simplest context, cloud computing is a service, managed by a provider, that doesn’t require the customer to know where the system is or what its capacities are. Processing, storage, and other key activities take place in a virtual “cloud,” rather than on a specific server. Different servers control single components of the cloud, and communicate with one another over various interfaces. On the user’s end, cloud computing is not dissimilar to the public electrical grid: individuals pull electricity from the grid and use it to light and power their homes without knowing which dynamo actually created it.

Combining Cloud Computing with Rugged Device Deployment

That provides cloud computing with a number of advantages, many of which hold particular significance to ruggedized computer users. Cloud computing is easy to use and maintain, since it does not need to be placed on every computer. It utilizes multiple redundancies, making it extremely reliable and unlikely to go down (a vital quality to users of rugged tablet PCs in disaster relief fields or remote operations). It allows users to access key systems anywhere, no matter where they happen to be. It offersTablet PC for Disaster Relief scalability, so that ruggedized computer users can operate swiftly and efficiently. It keeps costs extremely low, especially on public cloud delivery modes. Most importantly, it allows rugged device users to share resources, which increases efficiency and allows for improved peak-load capacity for ruggedized computers.

With the need for remote computer systems expanding all the time, and the utility of ruggedized computers improving by the day, cloud computing helps users take full advantage of their resources. When married with the high-end durability of Mobile Demand’s line of products, it permits a full range of remote activities: saving money without skimping on available computing power. MobileDemand stands at the forefront of remote computing solutions. As cloud computing takes an increasing role in future technical innovations, our products are poised to move forward seamlessly with it.
