At a recent speech I gave at an event in Dublin, I discussed the history of cloud computing and its origins.

I was speaking on behalf of Auxilion, an Irish IT managed services company moving and supporting organisation in the cloud.

As I was talking to a room on non-technical people I purposefully kept the details light, high-level and of a non-technical nature.

Basically the origins of cloud computing are very simple, but require the latest technologies to enable people to receive the benefits of using the cloud.

I have saved the details up to Slide Share where you can download a or view a copy of the presentation.
