What is "The Cloud?"
Consumer Uses of
Types of Clouds
Is a colloquial expression used to describe a variety of different computing concepts that involve a large number of computers that are connected through a real-time communication network (typically the Internet). Cloud computing is a jargon term without a commonly accepted non-ambiguous scientific or technical definition. In science,it is a synonym for distributed computing over a network and means the ability to run a program on many connected computers at the same time. The popularity of the term can be attributed to its use in marketing to sell hosted services in the sense of application service provisioning that run client server software on a remote location.
Network As A Service is the delivery model where the capability provided to the cloud service user is to use network/transport connectivity services.
Infrastructure As A Service is the most basic cloud-service model, providers of IaaS offer computers - physical or (more often) virtual machines - and other resources
Platform As A Service is a service model of cloud computing. In this model, the consumer creates the software using tools and/or libraries from the provider. The consumer also controls software deployment and configuration settings. The provider provides the networks, servers, storage, and other services
Software As A Service is a software delivery model in which software and associated data are centrally hosted on the cloud. SaaS is typically accessed by users using a thin client via a web browser
Over View and Industry Leaders
Public Cloud Advantages
•Pay as you go which minimizes upfront costs
•Up and running almost immediately
•Takes advantage of resource pooling
•Can grow as your company grows
Public Cloud Disadvantages
•What if the server fails?
•No resource issues due to other companies
•Still have to support the hardware and software
•Retain sensitive data behind your firewall while using a public cloud for the rest
•No need to build datacenter capacity for the busiest time of the year
•Difficulty integrating different infrastructures
•Still have the public cloud disadvantages for data and software on the public cloud
•Still have to support your private cloud infrastructure

More than one-third of cloud-enabled jobs will occur in the communications and media, banking, and discrete manufacturing industries.
Spending on Hosted Private Cloud Services to Surpass
Where did "The Cloud" come from?
Hey man, I just had an awesome idea!
“If computers of the kind I have advocated become the
computers of the future, then computing may someday be organized as a public utility just as the telephone system is a public utility.…The computer utility could become the basis of a new and important industry.”
