Cloud Computing

When the Internet is depicted in a flow chart it is usually represented by the outline of a cloud. This metaphor is now being used to describe a new generation of cloud computer services that are delivered over public and private networks. These services can include software, data storage, and data processing. Traditionally, users have accessed these services from their own computer or on a specific machine accessed over a network connection. In most cases, these services were purchased as products. Software is sold, and storage and processing hardware are purchased and operated by individuals, corporations, or governments. In other instances, software is licensed, and computer resources can be rented from hosting companies based on the hardware specification and geographic location.

Cloud computing differs from these conventional approaches by offering all of these products as a service. When cloud computing services are delivered, the user does not necessarily know the type of hardware used or the location of the data center. All services are delivered in an opaque fashion over a network connection. In fact, the services may be delivered from many computers spread across multiple data centers in order to balance loads and provide redundancy. The end user requires minimal hardware and software resources in order to access cloud computing services.

Cloud computing is an emerging trend in information technology that is finally giving users an alternative to the traditional models of computer resources accessed on individual computers or dedicated servers. Only by understanding both the benefits and the limitations of the cloud computing model can individuals and organizations decide when to utilize this exciting new technology.
