You will prepare and submit a term paper on The Concept of Cloud Computing. Your paper should be a minimum of 4250 words in length. Such technology has already been adopted by big companies such as Microsoft, Google and New York Times. just but to name a few. This kind of change roughly depicts what has widely come to be known as ‘cloud computing’. Cloud computing is currently still at the initial stages of development. Yet there remains a great potential of cloud computing being widely adopted in the field of information technology in the coming years. Many questions could be asked of cloud computing: What does cloud computing mean? How did cloud computing originate and why is it called cloud computing? What does cloud computing bring? What is more about cloud computing? An even more crucial question is whether or not cloud computing should be widely adopted. This term paper attempts to answer these questions. It also goes the extra mile to explore the history, the global concern and the compliance of cloud computing, among other key areas of concerns of cloud computing. This would offer a basis for elaborations for the underlying issues.
To begin with, Cloud computing refers to the phenomenon whereby computing is provided as a service instead of as a product (Luit Infotech 3). In this regard, computer software, computer shared resources as well as shared information is provided through a network, such as an internet, as a utility. Furthermore, Cloud computing services do not necessarily demand that the end-user understands the physical location and the system service configurations in order to get services. This can be compared to the application of the electric grid, where the consumers use electric power yet it does not require them to know and understand the device components that underlie the effective delivery of the electric power services.
Cloud computing currently acts as a supplement for Information Technology, its consumption as well as delivery models. It observes the protocol .of the internet to effectively achieve these.
