    4. 4. Cloud computing is Internet("cloud") based development and use of computer technology ("computing"). It is a style of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualisedresources are provided as a serviceover the Internet. Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them.<br />Courtesy of Wikipedia<br />Cloud Computing Defined 1:<br />18/06/2010<br />4<br />A Step into the Future – Educational Cloud Services<br />
    5. 5. A style of computing in which massively scalableIT-related capabilities are provided "as a service" using Internet technologies to multiple external customers.<br /> Courtesy of Gartner <br />“..the Enterprise Cloud offers customers more flexibilityand agilityover the traditional server based model, allowing for a precise and dynamic allocationof computing resources as needed.” <br />Cloud Computing Defined 2:<br />18/06/2010<br />5<br />A Step into the Future – Educational Cloud Services<br />
