What is Cloud Computing? — Another view

Irving Wladasky-Berger, chairman emeritus of IBM’s Academy of Technology, recently wrote and article on cloud computing titled “What is Cloud Computing, Anyway?”. The following is my interpretation of a few of the excellent points he made:

  • Well designed cloud computing applications completely hide the underlying software and hardware
  • Cloud computing is part of the evolution of the Internet
  • Cloud applications scale up to support billions of users, a scale far bigger than what has been done to date
  • Cloud computing represents the “industrialization” of IT infrastructures and datacenters
  • Enterprises need to embrace cloud-like methodologies now !!

The entire article is well worth your time to read first hand
