Cloud Computing, Cloud Services, Cloud Providers, Cloud Offerings
In general, “Cloud Computing” is the provision of web-based services, located on remote computers, allowing individuals and businesses to use software and hardware managed by third parties. As nowadays more organizations consider moving their applications and data from dedicated hosting infrastructure that they own and operate to share-infrastructure leased from “cloud” or “cloud computing”, I clarify in this survey the popularity rate of this concept and its usage besides the reasons and concerns of using “cloud” related services among people with various positions and abilities.
