Cloud Computing explained
“Cloud Computing” refers to the on-demand delivery of IT resources and applications hosted, delivered, and accessed remotely on the Internet rather than on a local server or personal computer, typically provided as either pay-as-you-go and/or tiered flat-rate pricing models.
The Cloud enables ubiquitous, convenient, and on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable IT and computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned, scaled, and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. It presents very attractive economic advantages, as well as speed, agility, flexibility, infinite elasticity, and a platform for innovation.
