 Cloud Computing - What is it?

As defined by Wikipedia - "Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared servers provide resources, software, and data to computersand other devices on demand, as with the electricity grid". The term "cloud" is used as a metaphor for the Internet, based on the cloud drawing used in the past to represent the telephone network as being abstract and "in the sky" while in reality it is a massive connected network infrastructure.

Cloud computing (also called "Software as a Service") is a natural evolution of the widespread adoption of the internet and of virtualization of services. Users of cloud software no longer have need for expertise in, or control over, the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them. Cloud services are dynamically scalable web-based tools or applications that users can access and use through a web browser as if it were a program installed locally on their own computer, while the software and data are stored on servers.

The fundamental concept of cloud computing is that the computing is "in the cloud" - i.e. that the processing (and the related data) is not in a specified, known or the same place(s). Generally, cloud computing customers do not own the physical infrastructure, instead avoiding capital expenditure by renting usage from a third-party provider. They consume resources as a service and pay only for resources that they use. Sharing computing power among multiple tenants can improve utilization rates, as servers are not unnecessarily left idle (which can reduce costs significantly while increasing the speed of application development). The cloud is becoming increasingly associated with small and medium enterprises (SMEs) as in many cases they cannot justify or afford the large capital expenditure of traditional IT. SMEs also typically have less existing infrastructure, less bureaucracy, more flexibility, and smaller capital budgets for purchasing in-house technology. Similarly, SMEs in emerging markets are typically unburdened by established legacy infrastructures, thus reducing the complexity of deploying cloud solutions.
