What is Cloud Computing? Cloud computing is a new style of computing where IT infrastructure is available as a ubiquitous, easily accessible, and reliable utility service conceptually similar to the telephone or electricity. Gartner describes cloud computing as “a style of computing where scalable and elastic IT-enabled capabilities are delivered as a service, enabling better sharing of technologies (especially multitenant applications, or virtual machines), increased automation, rapid and dynamic change, policy-driven and services-orientation, reduced complexity and autonomic response.” The big picture is all about reducing costs, while increasing agility and quality of service.
