“Cloud computing services by definition enable resource sharing across multiple data centers and other resources. This capability creates the opportunity to reduce the peak capacity (measured in numbers of simultaneous active virtual machines) of each data center down toward the average capacity of all data centers. This is accomplished by using the network (cloud) to shift capacity from highly utilized data centers to those with slack capacity….
Resource pooling using the cloud computing model also can be used to improve service availability at lower cost by eliminating the need to build redundant system elements into each data center. Network performance also is enhanced by pooling resources to improve network accessibility and agility, and reduce network latency and packet loss.”
These are great sources for defining and learning about cloud technology. Telecom vendor events in 2012 are also highly focused on cloud computing and technology:
We’d like to know what you think of Cloud Computing. How do think it will effect businesses? Security or other issues concern you? Any general questions regarding this technology? For many businesses it will prove quite useful and consumer savvy. It is for you? What do you think about it?
