What Is Cloud Computing?

The “cloud” is a generic, catch-all term that many people use to explain different IT concepts, solutions and services that might or might not actually be cloud computing. Because cloud computing is constantly evolving, the IT industry has had a difficult time creating a concrete definition for the concept.

Here’s What It Is

Cloud computing is an IT service intended for businesses that want an “on-demand”, highly available service. This could be an application, like an accounting or manufacturing software package. It could be an email server. Some cloud providers even offer to virtualize your entire server infrastructure and run it in their datacenter. Whatever the solution, the cloud vendors provide these services from their datacenters, running on their own infrastructure, instead of yours. Instead of spending money on applications and hardware, businesses have access to the same resources without the commitment of ownership. Cloud services can shift costs from capital expenditures to more fluid, scalable, and dynamic operating expenditures.

Here’s What It Is Not

Ironically, cloud services are not really what most people would picture a cloud to be. While many people believe that cloud solutions are “magic” and pain-free, you will want the right technology team on your side to help weigh the benefits of a chosen cloud solution. Cloud solutions aren’t for everyone. Many cloud solutions are now mature and stable, but others aren’t. And there are advantages and disadvantages to any cloud solution.
