What Is “The Cloud”?

Terje Vangbo

COO, Handel IT

Theme Song for Cloud Computing

I really don’t know clouds at all:

…..I've looked at clouds from both sides
now;
From up and
down,
and still
somehow

It's cloud's illusions I
recall;

I really don't know clouds at all…..

Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing


Cloud computing

is location
-
independent
computing
,
whereby shared servers provide resources, software,
and data to
computers

and other devices on demand,
as with the
electricity grid
.
Cloud computing is a
natural evolution of the widespread adoption of
virtualization
,
service
-
oriented architecture
and
utility
computing
.
Details are abstracted from consumers,
who no longer have need for expertise in, or control
over, the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that
supports them.






Wikipedia


Cloud Computing


Cloud Computing
is a general term for anything
that involves delivering
hosted services over the
Internet
. These services are broadly divided into
three categories: Infrastructure
-
as
-
a
-
Service
(IaaS), Platform
-
as
-
a
-
Service (PaaS) and Software
-
as
-
a
-
Service (SaaS). The name cloud computing
was inspired by the cloud symbol that's often
used to represent the Internet in flow charts and
diagrams.

Cloud Computing


A
cloud service

has three distinct characteristics that
differentiate it from traditional hosting. It is
sold on
demand
, typically by the minute or the hour;
it is
elastic

--

a user can have as much or as little of a
service as they want at any given time; and the service
is fully managed by the provider
(the customer needs
nothing but a personal computer and Internet access).
Significant innovations in virtualization and distributed
computing, as well as improved access to high
-
speed
Internet and a weak economy, have accelerated
interest in cloud computing.
