Cloud computing is quickly evolving and expanding, thus it’s hard to precisely define this technology (Pallis 2010). However, the main features of cloud computing can be identified according to national institute of standards and technology (NIST)’s definition:
Running head: Cloud Computing the Future of Business Cloud Computing the Future of Business NAME Ashford University INF 103: Computer Literacy Instructor: Date CLOUD COMPUTING THE FUTURE OF BUSINESS The national Institute of Standards and Technology under the department of Commerce defines Cloud Computing as “a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction”. Another definition for cloud computing is a term used to describe a network of computers that deliver information technology

INTRODUCTION Cloud computing is an internet based computing that depends on sharing computing with other resources rather than local servers or personal devices to handle applications. Cloud computing has fundamentally changed the way people view computing resources; rather than being an important capital consideration (Navavati, M., Colp, P., Aiello, B., & Warefield, A. (2014)). Cloud computing offers many potential benefits to organizations by making information technology (IT) services available as a commodity. IT services are services provided by IT service provider. Such services includes storing, retrieving, transmitting, and manipulating data for businesses or organizations.
Cloud Computing, also known as ‘on-demand-computing’. It is a computing that based on internet to share resources, information, and data with other devices on-demand. It is a model that enabled everywhere, computing resources such as servers, networks, applications and storages that are configurable can be shared once demand with access and provision rapidly and released with minimum effort of management, and different services are handed through Internet to the computer of organization. Cloud Computing depend on sharing computing resources instead of using personal devices or local servers to handle applications.
Cloud Computing is a process of delivering a companies or individual’s applications and documents from any place, at any time, on any device. It is also a process in which hosted services are delivered through the internet.
Cloud Computing National Institute of Standards and Technology’s defined Cloud computing as: "Cloud Computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released
Cloud computing refers to the technology in which the entire range of the services such as application, infrastructure and the platform are accessed with the help of the internet. The access to these services are provided by the major contributors such as Google, Apple , Salesforce.com, Amazon and Microsoft and the access to these services were entirely out of reach if these major providers would not have contributed in it to a large extent. The entire range of the services provided by the cloud computing includes the activities for the business operations. Collaboration; communication project management, data analysis; data scheduling; storage and the sharing are supported by the cloud services. The access to these cloud computing
Introduction Cloud computing is a general term that describes a type of computing that provides services over internet. The roots of cloud computing starts from a concept formulated by J.McCarthy in the 1960, the utility computing or the idea that computing could be organised as a public utility such as water or gas. This concept with many others such as network-centric-architecture and grid-computing can be found under the umbrella of cloud computing (Marinescu, 2013).
INTRODUCTION WHAT IS CLOUD COMPUTING? Cloud computing, or “the cloud”, is defined by NIST as; “...a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. This cloud model promotes availability and is composed of five essential characteristics, three service models, and four deployment models.” 
Cloud computing has become a compelling paradigm for delivering and managing services over the internet. Although it might be difficult to define cloud computing, one simple definition of the term is virtualized third-party hosting. In simple terms, instead of renting the entire or actual physical server, one rents a

The report will intend to provide readers the basic knowledge of how the cloud service work, what virtualization is and how various institution
Cloud Computing Group Members Ruth Wanjiru Cliff Kinyua Maritim Leonard Alphonse Kinyua Tracy Gathoni Abstract. Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared information, resources, and software, are provided to terminals and portable devices on-demand. It is a rapidly developing and excellent promising technology. Cloud computing is the product of the combination of grid computing, distributed computing, parallel computing, and ubiquitous computing. Cloud Computing model has enabled IT organizations to serve the users globally. It gives the services like Platform as a Service, Software as a Service and Infrastructure as a Service without users being much aware of the details in which the services are provided.
The underlying concept of cloud computing dates back to the era of the large-scale mainframe computers which were seen as the future of computing, and became available in academia and corporations, accessible through thin clients/terminal computers, often referred to as “static terminals,” because they were used for communications but had no internal processing capacities. To make more efficient use of costly mainframes, a practice evolved that allowed multiple users to share both the physical access to the computer from multiple terminals as well as the CPU time. This eliminated periods of inactivity on the mainframe and allowed for a greater return on the investment.
