Abstract

Cloud computing is a computing concept which is currently becoming popular over the Internet .It is invariably a storage paradigm which provides dynamically scalable and virtualized resources for hosting data and information on the net. The term cloud is actually a metaphor which depicts the underlying storage concept which shrinks and expands like a cloud containing rain water. Currently everything is hosted on the internet for a fixed price for storage. Website hosting servers have to be paid a fixed sum of money for hosting information and files. In turn they provide a fixed storage which can only be used . If additional storage is needed then price relative to the amount of storage needed has to be paid in addition to waiting time till the server allocates the resources. This price has to be paid initially and even if it is not fully utilized yet the money has to be paid.Cloud computing brings in the concept of ‘pay as you use’. The present aim of Cloud computing is to provide virtually infinite workspace and storage for any client that has registered with a cloud computing server. This concept is presently adopted by the Hosting servers which provide this facility as a service. This article aims at illustrating the concept of cloud computing and also explains about the pros and cons of cloud computing technology.
