Cloud computing has nothing to do with the weather and while it’s not entirely safe from cyber attacks, the technology is creating IT jobs and millions of people are using the cloud. So says an infographic designed to clear up misconceptions around cloud computing.

The infographic also illustrates how people are using the cloud, the most common attackers with respect to cloud security (external agents), just how many people are using the cloud in terms of Gmail, iCloud and Dropbox, and the types of jobs that are springing up as a result of cloud computing.
