CLOUD COMPUTING


1. What is cloud computing?

A. Cloud computing is an expression used to describe a variety of different computing concepts that involve a

large number of computers that are connected through a real-time communication network (typically the

Internet). Cloud computing is the distributed computing over a network and means the ability to run a

program on many connected computers at the same time.

2. What are the advantages of cloud computing?

A. a. Improved accessibility: Device and location independence enable users to access systems using a web

browser regardless of their location or what device they are using. As infrastructure is off-site and accessed via

the Internet, users can connect from anywhere. This also makes maintenance of cloud computing applications

easier.

b. Cost efficient: Cloud computing is probably the most cost efficient method to use, maintain and

upgrade. There’s no need to spend big money on hardware, software or licensing fees or on other

technological infrastructure. The Virtualization technology allows servers and storage devices to be shared and

utilization be increased.
