  4. 4. Cloud – some basic definitions Before we start, here are some basic definitions. • Cloud-based applications: an application running on / with computing resources (hardware and software) that are delivered as a service over a network (typically the Internet) (see wikipedia). There are quite a few versions of a cloud infrastructure: public cloud, hybrid, private cloud, racks... For the sake of simplicity, we will consider cloud in its most simple form, in which the application is hosted on the datacenter's servers. www.nikecsolutions.com
