Cloud computing belongs to a group called SaaS (Software as a Service) computing. SaaS deliver one application within cloud computing to thousands of customers across the world. Cloud computing is also a utility computing IT resource that allows user to access the cloud on demand. Cloud computing also delivers cloud web services. Who invented Cloud computing? John McCarthy in the 1960s stated that “computation may someday be organized as a public utility” (Anon., 2010). This was the era when the idea of cloud computing came about. In 1966 Douglass Parkhill looked into all modern day characteristics of cloud computing within his book ‘The Challenge of computer utility’ (Parkhill, 1966). Around as early as the 1950s “an early implementation of cloud computing was patented and put to use (in England and Germany) by Hardy Schloer. He termed the system a ‘one page web’” (Anon., 2010). Since then Cloud computing has grown on a fast scale. Cloud computing is now used by millions of people across the world. 3.0 The main trends within Cloud Computing: The main trends within cloud computing are hybrid clouds, BYOD (Bring your own device), PaaS (Platform as a service), big data analytics, graphics as a server, identity management and protection and web powered apps. Hybrid clouds are an infrastructure that combines high levels of private security and cost-effectiveness with public cloud attributes. Customers can get better personalisation of their
