    What is Cloud Computing?

    Monday, February 1st, 2010 by Will Elkadi

    Cloud computing refers to applications and services that are accessible via the Internet. These cloud applications use powerful servers and large datacenters for hosting.

    Web applications and services. Servers in the cloud are optimized to run various hosted applications and are fine tuned for innovative and limitless possibilities.

    Anyone with an Internet connection and a standard Web browser can access a cloud application.

    Cloud Computing Defined:

    A cloud is a group of virtual resources.

    A cloud is able to:

    • Handle a variety of workloads with hosted applications

    • Process large workloads for deployment through virtual channels and physical channels

    • Provide self-sufficient, highly stable and scalable programming modules for support and recovery from inevitable hardware and software failures

    • Determine in real time the amount of resources used and needed, assisting in re-allocation of workloads and tools along with other means for improvement

    Cloud computing environments can support Web infrastructures running standard or Web 2.0 applications.

    Use of the cloud is more beneficial than simply using a collection of general, physical computer resources since the use of the cloud gives means by which to manage the resources. Managing your part of the cloud allows you access to provide services, change services, run the latest Web applications and technologies, reimage machines, relocate resources, grant access and obtain access from anywhere, re-allocate workloads, monitor resources and application usage, reference statistics and many other useful functionalities.

    Cloud computing is a wave of the future… catch the wave…
