Cloud Computing

Hi,

I am just beginning to hear Cloud computing mentioned a lot and came across ‘Amazon Cloud Servers’.

What is Cloud Computing? And what is the Cloud Servers on Amazon.com??

Thanks.

This is the best review of cloud computing I’ve found so far: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing

Basically cloud computing is all about keeping your data on servers (rather than locally) and distributing your resource needs through such a system - Amazon offer a cloud solution to allow individuals to remotely store documents or other valuable data and pay by the amount of bandwidth consumed. :slight_smile:
