WHAT IS IT? Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a metered service over a network (typically the Internet). Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing
IT DOES HAVE ISSUES
PUBLIC CLOUD A public cloud is one based on the standard cloud computing model, in which a service provider makes resources, such as applications and storage, available to the general public over the Internet. Public cloud services may be free or offered on a pay- per-usage model.
COMMUNITY CLOUD Community cloud shares infrastructure between several organizations from a specific community with common concerns (security, compliance, jurisdiction, etc.), whether managed internally or by a third-party and hosted internally or externally. The costs are spread over fewer users than a public cloud (but more than a private cloud), so only some of the benefits of cloud computing are realized
PRIVATE CLOUD Private cloud is infrastructure operated solely for a single organization, whether managed internally or by a third-party and hosted internally or externally
EXAMPLES: DATA STORAGE Amazon S3 http://aws.amazon.com/s3/ Write, read, and delete objects containing from 1 byte to 5 terabytes of data each. The number of objects you can store is unlimited. Each object is stored in a bucket and retrieved via a unique, developer- assigned key.
EXAMPLE: ELASTIC CLOUD Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.
EXAMPLE: PRODUCTIVITY: GOOGLEDOCS Google Docs is a free, Web-based office suite, and data storage service offered by Google.
