Basics of Cloud ComputingBy Kedar Deshpande

What is Cloud Computing?Cloud is simply a metaphor for the internet Users do not have or need knowledge, control, ownership in the computer infrastructure Users simply rent or access the software, paying only for what they use

History of Cloud Computing Concept dating back to the 1960s by John McCarthy, a computer scientist, brought up the idea that "computation may someday be organized as a public utility Idea that revolutionized Cloud Computing: Moving from clustering computing to grid computing Clustering Grid

In some ways, the cloud is a natural next step from the grid-utility gridmodel, said Frank Gens, an analyst at the research firm IDC

Early Leaders in the Industry In 2007, Microsoft made available free software, that connects its Windows operating system to software services delivered on the Internet Launched in July 2002, Amazon Web Services provided online services for other web sites or client-side applications client 3tera launched its AppLogic system in February, 2006 IBMs system introduced in the mid 2000s is called Blue Cloud
