Glossary Cloud Computing

Definition

Cloud computing is a computing model involving storing and making available computing or storage resources through the Internet. The advantage of cloud computing is the on-demand availability it provides to users. Most businesses will retain and manage relationships with multiple cloud providers, deploying a hybrid combination of private or public cloud facilities. Another advantage and characteristic of cloud computing is that resources can be dynamically scaled up and down to match needs—this provides flexibility and agility to enterprises who do not have to plan computing and storing capabilities in advance of needing them.
