In simplest terms cloud computing is the delivery of hosted services with the help of internet. You really do not need your own in house computing infrastructure to run your business, but rather opt for the cloud technology. It promises many benefits to the users like:
- Elasticity: You can scale up with the increase in your computing needs and also vice versa.
- Self-service provisioning: You can spin –up your computing resources for any workload.
- Pay per use: You need to pay for what resources and workloads you use and not the infrastructure have to be maintained.
