Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is a new, still loosely defined term for viewing tech resources as deliverable software and data services -- not physical devices. A key component of cloud computing is virtualization, which allows services to run across multiple assets. Much discussion of cloud computing assumes that the "cloud" is, in fact, the Internet. Software-as-a-service products from vendors such as Google and Salesforce.com are often referred to as "cloud applications." However, enterprises can create clouds though virtualization in their own data centers.
