dc.description.abstract

Cloud computing is a means which allows you access applications and other information that reside at a location other than your computer or server which typically may be hundreds or thousands of miles away. One advantage of cloud computing is that another company hosts the application(s) which implies that they are responsible for the cost of hardware and software and therefore you as the end user pays less for the services.

The learner should realize that grid computing is often confused with cloud computing. However, a grid computing network harnesses the unused processing cycles of all computers in the grid pool to solve problems that may be too intensive for any one stand alone computer.
