  2. 2. "Cloud computing comes into focus only when you think about what IT always needs: a way to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software. Cloud computing encompasses any subscription-based or pay-per-use service that, in real-time over the Internet, extends IT's existing capabilities."<br />What is cloud computing?<br />http://www.infoworld.com/d/cloud-computing/what-cloud-computing-really-means-031<br />
  3. 3. Cloud Computing Terms<br />SaaS (software as a service) - No investment for customers. Low costs for hosting. Google Apps and Zoho office are examples of SaaS.<br />Utility computing - Storage and virtual servers "such as 3Tera's AppLogic and Cohesive Flexible Technologies' Elastic Server on Demand."<br />
  4. 4. Terms (cont’d)<br />Web services in the cloud - Similar to SaaS but include services like Google Maps, payroll, credit card processing, and postal services.<br />PaaS (platform as a service) - Similar to SaaS but is used for development environment services like Coghead and Google App Engine.<br />
  5. 5. Terms (cont’d)<br />MSP (managed service provider) - One of the oldest forms of cloud computing such as virus scanning for emails and application monitoring service.<br />Service commerce platforms - This is a blend of SaaS and MSP where the most common products are trading environments like ordering travel and secretarial services. Well known examples - Rearden Commerce and Ariba.<br />
  6. 6. Terms (cont’d)<br />Internet integration - Currently in its early stage; designed to serve SaaS providers known as ESB (enterprise service bus).<br />
  7. 7. According to Wikipedia, "Cloud computing is computation, software, data access, and storage services that do not require end-user knowledge of the physical location and configuration of the system that delivers the services."<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing<br />
