enabling convenient. It is a paradigm shift following the mainframe and client-server shifts that preceded it. it is elastic -. Typical cloud computing providers deliver common business applications online which are accessed from a web browser. typically by the minute or the hour.. Introduction: Cloud computing is Internet-based computing. while the software and data are stored on servers.a user can have as much or as little of a service as they want at any given time. as well as improved access to high-speed Internet and a weak economy. Significant innovations in virtualization and distributed computing. Cloud computing logical diagram A technical definition is "a computing capability that provides an abstraction between the computing resource and its underlying technical architecture (e. A cloud service has three distinct characteristics that differentiate it from traditional hosting. and it typically involves the provision of dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources as a service over the Internet.Cloud computing describes a new supplement.Cloud computing ABSTRACT Cloud computing is a general term for anything that involves delivering hosted services over the Internet. based on the cloud drawing used in the past to represent the telephone network . . It is sold on demand. networks). servers. and the service is fully managed by the provider (the consumer needs nothing but a personal computer and Internet access).g. like electricity. have accelerated interest in cloud computing. These services are broadly divided into three categories: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). consumption and delivery model for IT services based on the Internet. It is a byproduct and consequence of the ease-of-access to remote computing sites provided by the Internet. Details are abstracted from the users who no longer have need of. or control over the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them. and later to depict the Internet in computer network diagrams as an abstraction of the underlying infrastructure it represents. expertise in. software and information are provided to computers and other devices on-demand. whereby shared resources. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). The name cloud computing was inspired by the cloud symbol that's often used to represent the Internet in flow charts and diagrams. The term cloud is used as a metaphor for the Internet.. storage.

The majority of cloud computing infrastructure. • Grid computing — "a form of distributed computing and parallel computing. the strategic importance of information technology is diminishing as it becomes standardized and less expensive. and immediate access to a broad range of applications. industry and consumer statistics. 2. • Client-server – Client-server computing refers broadly to any distributed application that distinguishes between service providers (servers) and service requesters (clients). enterprise resource planning. Many cloud-computing offerings employ the utility computing model. cloud computing customers do not own the physical infrastructure. Commercial offerings are generally expected to meet quality of service (QoS) requirements of customers and typically offer SLAs. rapid elasticity. • Utility computing — the "packaging of computing resources. Other benefits of this time sharing-style approach are low barriers to entry. In general. and services when they pay a provider only for what they use. . as of 2009. like a newspaper) basis with little or no upfront cost.Comparisons: Cloud computing derives characteristics from. low management overhead. such as computation and storage. Sharing "perishable and intangible" computing power among multiple tenants can improve utilization rates. and measured service. They consume resources as a service and pay only for resources that they use. like electricity) or subscription (time-based."This definition states that clouds have five essential characteristics: on-demand self-service. In addition. software. 3. broad network access. such as electricity". as a metered service similar to a traditional public utility.Characteristics: In general. which is analogous to how traditional utility services (such as electricity) are consumed. According to Nicholas Carr.on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. 1. as customers do not have to engineer for peak load limits. Clouds often appear as single points of access for all consumers' computing needs.Economics: Cloud computing users can avoid capital expenditure (CapEx) on hardware. A side-effect of this approach is that overall computer usage rises dramatically. users can terminate the contract at any time (thereby avoiding return on investment risk and uncertainty). instead avoiding capital expenditure by renting usage from a third-party provider. whereas others bill on a subscription basis. "increased high-speed bandwidth" makes it possible to receive the same response times from centralized infrastructure at other sites. Consumption is usually billed on a utility (resources consumed. as servers are not unnecessarily left idle (which can reduce costs significantly while increasing the speed of application development). loosely coupled computers acting in concert to perform very large tasks" • Mainframe — powerful computers used mainly by large organizations for critical applications. resource pooling. but should not be confused with: • Autonomic computing — "computer systems capable of self-management". whereby a 'super and virtual computer' is composed of a cluster of networked. and the services are often covered by service level agreements (SLAs) with financial penalties. He argues that the cloud computing paradigm shift is similar to the displacement of electricity generators by electricity grids early in the 20th century. consists of reliable services delivered through data centers and built on servers. and financial transaction processing. typically bulk data processing such as census. shared infrastructure and costs.

By switching traffic to balance utilization as they saw fit they were able to utilise their overall network bandwidth more effectively. The cloud symbol was used to denote the demarcation point between that which was the responsibility of the provider from that of the user. the company's existing operating costs.Architecture: Cloud computing sample architecture Cloud architecture. were using as little as 10% of their capacity at any one time just to leave room for occasional spikes.Although companies might be able to save on upfront capital expenditures. indeed it shares characteristics with service bureaus that date back to the 1960s. Other factors impacting the scale of any potential cost savings include the efficiency of a company’s data center as compared to the cloud vendor’s. the cloud model might not make great fiscal sense. . This closely resembles the Unix philosophy of having multiple programs each doing one thing well and working together over universal interfaces. which. they might not save much and might actually pay more for operating expenses. The actual term "cloud" borrows from telephony in that telecommunications companies. or where the organization has more flexibility in their capital budget than their operating budget. when John McCarthy opined that "computation may someday be organized as a public utility". who until the 1990s primarily offered dedicated point-to-point data circuits. like most computer networks. the level of adoption of cloud computing. typically involves multiple cloud components communicating with each other over application programming interfaces. 5. fast-moving "two-pizza teams" could add new features faster and easier. the systems architecture of the software systems involved in the delivery of cloud computing. In situations where the capital expense would be relatively small. 4. usually web services. Having found that the new cloud architecture resulted in significant internal efficiency improvements whereby small. Complexity is controlled and the resulting systems are more manageable than their monolithic counterparts. Amazon played a key role in the development of cloud computing by modernizing their data centers after the dot-com bubble. began offering Virtual Private Network (VPN) services with comparable quality of service but at a much lower cost. Amazon started providing access to their systems through Amazon Web Services on a utility computing basis in 2005.History: The underlying concept of cloud computing dates back to 1960. and the type of functionality being hosted in the cloud. Cloud computing extends this boundary to cover servers as well as the network infrastructure.

but accessing the audit logs themselves can be difficult or impossible." 6. without users having to engineer for peak loads. mobile). and annual basis. By mid-2008. Cost is claimed to be greatly reduced and capital expenditure is converted to operational expenditure. weekly.) Peak-load capacity increases (users need not engineer for highest possible load-levels) Utilization and efficiency improvements for systems that are often only 10–20% utilized. and consistent and loosely-coupled architectures are constructed using web services as the system interface. Providers typically log accesses. since they don't have to be installed on each user's computer. PC. those who use IT services and those who sell them". and observed that " organisations are switching from company-owned hardware and software assets to per-use service-based models" so that the "projected shift to cloud computing . Pricing on a utility computing basis is fine-grained with usage-based options and fewer IT skills are required for implementation (in-house).. etc. self-service basis near real-time. increased security-focused resources. etc. monthly. Performance is monitored. Multi-tenancy enables sharing of resources and costs across a large pool of users thus allowing for: Centralization of infrastructure in locations with lower costs (such as real estate.. will result in dramatic growth in IT products in some areas and in significant reductions in other areas. in part because providers are able to devote resources to solving security issues that many customers cannot afford. and a number of universities embarked on a large scale cloud computing research project. many major cloud computing services have suffered outages. Furthermore. and the lack of security for stored kernels. which makes cloud computing suitable for business continuity and disaster recovery. As infrastructure is off-site (typically provided by a third-party) and accessed via the Internet.Layers: . Security could improve due to centralization of data. Metering cloud computing resources usage should be measurable and should be metered per client and application on daily. and IT and business managers can at times do little when they are affected Scalability via dynamic ("on-demand") provisioning of resources on a fine-grained. This will enable clients on choosing the vendor cloud on cost and reliability (QoS). 7.Key features Agility improves with users' ability to rapidly and inexpensively re-provision technological infrastructure resources. IBM. Security is often as good as or better than under traditional systems.In 2007. Reliability improves through the use of multiple redundant sites. They are easier to support and to improve since the changes reach the clients instantly. electricity. Gartner saw an opportunity for cloud computing "to shape the relationship among consumers of IT services. Nonetheless. Device and location independence enable users to access systems using a web browser regardless of their location or what device they are using (e. as infrastructure is typically provided by a third-party and does not need to be purchased for one-time or infrequent intensive computing tasks. One of the most important new methods for overcoming performance bottlenecks for a large class of applications is data parallel programming on a distributed data grid.g. but concerns can persist about loss of control over certain sensitive data.. This ostensibly lowers barriers to entry.. users can connect from anywhere. Google. the complexity of security is greatly increased when data is distributed over a wider area and / or number of devices. Maintenance cloud computing applications are easier to maintain.

It is an evolution of virtual private server offerings.. Key characteristics include: Network-based access to. operating systems and browsers. clients instead buy those resources as a fully outsourced service.e.Client A cloud client consists of computer hardware and/or computer software that relies on cloud computing for application delivery. including multi-core processors. in either case. as a service. and management of. eliminating the need to install and run the application on the customer's own computers and simplifying maintenance and support. Infrastructure Cloud infrastructure services or "Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)" delivers computer infrastructure. Application Cloud application services or "Software as a Service (SaaS)" deliver software as a service over the Internet. commercially available (i. typically a platform virtualization environment. Server The servers layer consists of computer hardware and/or computer software products that are specifically designed for the delivery of cloud services. or that is specifically designed for delivery of cloud services and that. not custom) software Activities that are managed from central locations rather than at each customer's site. and management characteristics Centralized feature updating. 8. including architecture. cloud-specific operating systems and combined offerings. Deployment models: . multi-tenant architecture) than to a one-to-one model. often consuming cloud infrastructure and sustaining cloud applications. phones and other devices. It facilitates deployment of applications without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware and software layers. Examples include some computers. Platform Cloud platform services or "Platform as a Service (PaaS)" deliver a computing platform and/or solution stack as a service. pricing. partnering. data center space or network equipment. which obviates the need for downloadable patches and upgrades. The service is typically billed on a utility computing basis and amount of resources consumed (and therefore the cost) will typically reflect the level of activity. enabling customers to access applications remotely via the Web Application delivery that typically is closer to a one-to-many model (single instance. is essentially useless without it. software. Rather than purchasing servers.

Another perspective on deploying a web application in the cloud is using Hybrid Web Hosting. can monitor at will.Issues Privacy The Cloud model has been criticized by privacy advocates for the greater ease in which the companies hosting the Cloud services control. By integrating multiple cloud services users may be able to ease the transition to public cloud services while avoiding issues such as PCI compliance. 9. via web applications/web services. Examples of community cloud include Google's "Gov Cloud". Private cloud Private cloud and internal cloud are neologisms that some vendors have recently used to describe offerings that emulate cloud computing on private networks. corporate governance. essentially "[lacking] the economic model that makes cloud computing such an intriguing concept". They have been criticized on the basis that users "still have to buy. the . where the hosting infrastructure is a mix between Cloud Hosting for the web server.Cloud computing types Public cloud Public cloud or external cloud describes cloud computing in the traditional mainstream sense. lawfully or unlawfully. whereby resources are dynamically provisioned on a fine-grained. Community cloud A community cloud may be established where several organizations have similar requirements and seek to share infrastructure so as to realize some of the benefits of cloud computing. build. These (typically virtualisation automation) products claim to "deliver some benefits of cloud computing without the pitfalls". self-service basis over the Internet. security and/or policy compliance. Hybrid cloud A hybrid cloud environment consisting of multiple internal and/or external providers "will be typical for most enterprises". and thus. capitalising on data security. and reliability concerns. and Managed dedicated server for the database server. and manage them" and as such do not benefit from lower up-front capital costs and less hands-on management. With the costs spread over fewer users than a public cloud (but more than a single tenant) this option is more expensive but may offer a higher level of privacy. from an off-site third-party provider who shares resources and bills on a finegrained utility computing basis.

Department of m. In November 2007. Dell applied to trademark the term "cloud computing" (U. under non-disclosure agreement.082) in the United States. This is how Google are able to "manage and meet additional government policy requirements beyond FISMA" and Rackspace Cloud are able to claim PCI compliance.S. Some argue that customer data is more secure when managed internally. resulting in a formal rejection of the trademark application less than a week later. there is as of yet no published study to substantiate this assumption. providers such as Amazon still cater to major markets (typically the United States and the European Union) by deploying local infrastructure and allowing customers to select "availability zones. users may have to adopt community or hybrid deployment modes which are typically more expensive and may offer restricted benefits. Legal In March 2007. Open source Open standards are critical to the growth of cloud computing. causes uncertainty among privacy advocates. Google and Microsoft). Verizon and BellSouth. Providers typically make this information available on request. while others argue that cloud providers have a strong incentive to maintain trust and as such employ a higher level of security. and the greater powers it gives to telecommunication companies to monitor user activity. but this has been criticised on the grounds that the hand-picked set of goals and standards determined by the auditor and the auditee are often not disclosed and can vary widely.communication and data stored between the user and the host company. and open source software has provided the foundation for many cloud computing implementations. While there have been efforts (such as US-EU Safe Harbor) to "harmonise" the legal environment. Trademark 77. Security The relative security of cloud computing services is a contentious issue which may be delaying its adoption.g.a Classwork Seminar . the Free Software Foundation released the Affero General Public License. which recorded over 10 million phone calls between American citizens. The "Notice of Allowance" the company received in July 2008 was cancelled in August. working with AT&T. a version of GPLv3 intended to close a perceived legal loophole associated with free software designed to be run over a network. Amazon.c. HIPAA and SOX in the US. the Data Protection Directive in the EU and the credit card industry's PCI DSS. Instances such as the secret NSA program. Sustainability Although cloud computing is often assumed to be a form of "green computing".139. Many providers also obtain SAS 70 Type II certification (e."
