What is cloud computing?
Here's what Wikipedia says...
Cloud computing is a phrase used to describe a variety of computing concepts that involve a large number of computers connected through a real-time communication network such as the Internet. In science, cloud computing is a synonym for distributed computingover a network, and means the ability to run a program or application on many connected computers at the same time.The phrase is often used in reference to network-based services, which appear to be provided by real server hardware, and are in fact served up by virtual hardware, simulated by software running on one or more real machines. Such virtual servers do not physically exist and can therefore be moved around and scaled up or down on the fly without affecting the end user, somewhat like a cloud.In common usage, the term "the cloud" is essentially a metaphor for the Internet.
