Advanced Concepts of Cloud Computing – 2014

“Nowadays, we hear more and more about could computing. For people who are tech savvy,
within the world of IT, it is easy to learn and relate to this concept. But for many people, who
are technically challenged, run multi-million dollar businesses, understanding cloud
computing is difficult, yet necessary. For some people understanding cloud computing may be
just to satiate their curiosity but for many more it is an important aspect of life and businesses.
Cloud computing is already affecting businesses (positively) and impacting decision making
more than each one of us can think of!
Cloud computing can be described in multiple ways. In fact, it has almost 21 different
definitions. Though it means different things to different people, cloud computing is a term
that doesn’t describe one particular, single thing – rather it can be considered as a general
term that sits over a variety of services from Infrastructure as a Service at the base, through
Platform as a Service as a development tool and through to Software as a Service replacing
on-premise applications.
