Today’s Cloud Computing Landscape
Cloud computing is a general term for anything that involves delivering hosted services over the Internet. 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.
Cloud Computing: Public vs Private
There are as many meanings of cloud as there are technology bloggers. However, the main theme is that a Public Cloud offers IT resources that are provisioned remotely from the consumer and operated by a third party. In a Private Cloud, the organization policies are governed by a particular organization where workloads and data can be moved to and from internal and external data centers. Private Clouds offer an organization a single point of control for security, manageability, privacy, audit, compliance and governance.
The History Of Cloud Computing
