    Cloud computing is a way of computing, where most of our data is stored in thecloud, i.e, the Internet.

    A computing capability that provides an abstraction between the computing resourceand its underlying technical architecture (e.g., servers, storage, networks), enablingconvenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computingresources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal managementeffort.

    The goal of cloud computing is to apply traditional supercomputing , or high- performance computing power, normally used by military and research facilities, to perform tens of trillions of computations per second, in consumer-orientedapplications such as financial portfolios, to deliver personalized information, to

    provide data storage or to power large, immersive computer games. To do this, cloudcomputing uses networks of large groups of servers typically running low-costconsumer PC technology with specialized connections to spread data-processingchores across them.

    Why we choose cloud computing is that, Clients would be able to access their

    applications and data from anywhere at any time. They could access the cloudcomputing system using any computer linked to the Internet . It could bring hardwarecosts down. Cloud computing systems would reduce the need for advanced hardwareon the client side. You wouldn't need to buy the fastest computer with themost memory , because the cloud system would take care of those needs for you.Instead, you could buy an inexpensive computer terminal. The terminal could includea monitor , input devices like a keyboard and mouse and just enough processing power to run the middleware necessary to connect to the cloud system. You wouldn't need alarge hard drive because you'd store all your information on a remote computer.

    Cloud computing systems give these organizations company-wide access to computer applications. The companies don't have to buy a set of software or software licensesfor every employee. Instead, the company could pay a fee to a cloud computingcompany. Servers and digital storage devices take up space. Some companies rent

    physical space to store servers and databases because they don't have it available onsite. Cloud computing gives these companies the option of storing data on someoneelse's hardware, removing the need for physical space on the front end. Streamlinedhardware would, in theory, have fewer problems than a network of heterogeneous machines and operating systems . Perhaps the biggest concerns

    about cloud computing are security and privacy .
