a Cloud concepts are not a recent thing. In fact, it has been around for over 50 years!
at It has had many phases, including grid & utility computing, software and a service

terminals that were only used to access the mainframe.
In 1969, the world launched the first working prototype of ARPANET.
I ARPANET is the network which the internet was based off.
ARPANET linked four different computers that were located in different areas of
The idea was to share information and resources with other users who studied in

In the 1970's, the model of virtual machines (VM) is born.
With this software, it was possible to use multiple operating systems at the same

Clients could now access information and files from one virtual location from their
