Cloud computing system is a fundamental part of data storage. With the onset of ‘private clouds’, a code of practice is now overdue. The following extract, from Business Insider,
refers to the development of Cloud Computing.Here's Why Cloud Computing Is So Hot Right Now some cases, companies even use it to describe products they've sold for years. Oracle's Larry Ellison tried to resist -- a couple of years ago, he famously called the hype about cloud computing ‘complete gibberish’ -- but now even Oracle has gotten on board.
So what is cloud computing and why are businesses embracing it?
What Is The Cloud?
At its simplest, cloud computing means that users are connecting to applications that run on a set of shared or pooled servers, rather than running on a single dedicated server.This is a subtle but important change from the client-server computing that has dominated IT for the past 20 years, where each application was "assigned" to a particular piece of hardware in a data center. If that hardware was down, the user either had to connect to a backup (which had to be standing by and ready) or would suffer an interruption in service. In the earliest instances, these shared resources were physically located away from the company's premises, and users would connect to them over the public Internet. For instance, a user would connect to Salesforce.com or Rackspace to run business management apps or email, or a developer would tap into Amazon's Web servers for storage and computing power.So the "cloud" in cloud computing was the Internet, which is often represented with a physical cloud on software design and networking charts.
But in the last two or three years, vendors like Microsoft and IBM have been pushing the idea of "private clouds." These are sets of servers run by large companies or government agencies for the exclusive use of their employees, who usually connect to them over a private area network.”
