Cloud computing is a shift following the switchover from mainframe to client–server in the early 1980s. Cloud computing is web-based processing, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand over the Internet.

Cloud computing describes a new supplement, consumption, and delivery model for IT services based on the Internet, and it typically involves over-the-Internet provision of dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources. It is a byproduct and consequence of the ease-of-access to remote computing sites provided by the Internet.

This R’search presents its research report Analyzing Cloud Computing – a complete analysis of the emerging market of cloud computing.

The research report begins with an introduction to the concept of cloud computing. Section B explains what cloud computing is, the history of cloud computing, emergence of the network, cloud architecture, cloud application programming interfaces along with the cost logic of cloud computing. Regulations impacting cloud computing is also discussed and the most important point to consider: the advantages and disadvantages READ MORE >
