I have read Wikipedia articles, etc., but I have a small engineering firm. We're a machine vision integrator. For some reason, it was suggested that if we offered a "cloud" -- whatever that is -- that we'd be one of a kind and it'd help our business.
Could somebody please explain what this means? I mean, would I have to talk to my web host and get a dedicated cloud server, which would cost more I'm sure, and then what would the advantages be? Thanks!
To explain more, specifically, I would want GM, Ford, Chrysler, etc., and other clients to be able to access software that we have to apply to the machine vision systems we installed in their plants. I would also like to share machine vision files, CAD drawings, images, etc., over the cloud, in addition to proprietary machine vision files. I hope this cleared things up. Thanks again!
