  • 3. WORKING TITLE THE UTILITY CLOUD COMPUTING AS A COST CUTTING FOR START OF INDIA SMESCLOUD COMPUTINGCloud computing refers to the on-demand provision of computational resources (data,software) via a computer network, rather than from a local computer. Users or clients cansubmit a task, such as word processing, to the service provider, without actually possessingthe software or hardware. The consumers computer may contain very little software or data(perhaps a minimal operating system and web browser only), serving as little more than adisplay terminal connected to the Internet. Since the cloud is the underlying deliverymechanism, cloud based applications and services may support any type of softwareapplication or service in use today.In the past, both data and software had to be stored and processed on or near the computer.The development of Local Area Networks allowed for a system in which multiple CPUs andstorage devices may be organized to increase the performance of the entire system. In anextension to that concept, cloud computing fundamentally allows for a functional separationbetween the resources used and the users computer, usually residing outside the localnetwork, for example, in a remote datacenter. Consumers now routinely use data intensiveapplications driven by cloud technology which were previously unavailable due to cost anddeployment complexity. In many companies employees and company departments arebringing a flood of consumer technology into the workplace and this raises legal complianceand security concerns for the corporation.

Additional Cloud Characteristics Cloud computing often leverages: Massive and Rapid scalability Homogeneity Virtualization Resilient computing Low cost software Geographic distribution, (many datacenters) Service orientation Advanced security technologiesCloud Deployment Models Private Cloud (a.k.a. Internal Cloud) enterprise owned or leased Community Cloud (a.k.a. External Cloud) shared infrastructure for specific community Public cloud (a.k.a.
