“Cloud Computing” and “Cloud Storage” (in short “Cloud”) is a vast network of computers and servers which preserves information and allows access to those information from any device that has an Internet connection. In other word, the “cloud” allows sharing of files, information, storage space and resources over the Internet. Based on this “Cloud”, Wakefield Research conducted an exceptional survey of 6 days this month. During the survey, more than 1000 US citizens had been asked what is “cloud?” Major US citizens answered that the “cloud” was related to weather.


Wakefield Research ran a survey called “Citrix Cloud” upon 1,006 American adults (18 or 18+ age) between August 2 to August 7, 2012, using an email invitation and an online survey.. Their purpose was to find out how many people knows the widely used tech buzzword “cloud.” When these Americans had been asked about “cloud”, most of them misunderstood and gave funny answer. Most of the people said that it was related to weather (cloud-rain). Some people answered it as “pillow”, some referred it to “drugs” and some pointed it to “toilet paper”. This survey has revealed some exclusive information.
