One of the popular terms that has snuck into our lexicon is "The Cloud". Amazon, Apple, Dropbox, Google, and Microsoft all have cloud offerings. We stream our music using services like Spotify and Pandora. When was the last time you went to a brick and mortar store to rent a movie? Today we rent our movies using Amazon, iTunes, and Netflix. We are also starting to get comfortable storing our music libraries and other documents on the different cloud services of our choice.

Autodesk has their own cloud offering called A360. If you have any Autodesk products installed on your computer, chances are you have seen some reference to A360. A360 is a project based collaboration tool that brings together data, people, and activities. Design data and other related documents can be accessed using Autodesk applications, web browsers, or by using dedicated iOS, Android, and Windows Universal apps. A360 also is the backbone for products like Fusion 360 and PLM 360. 

So go get your Autodesk account set up and check back here often as we explore A360.
