If you are thinking of starting an enterprise, the biggest and the most difficult hurdle is that of Capital Expenditure (CapEx). And one very important factor is the cost of software, since hardware is relatively less expensive. You look towards the heavens thinking where to find the answers from.

Well, you are looking in the right direction, for the answer lies in the clouds. Not literally, though. I am referring to Cloud Computing, a concept analogous to the electricity system.

Cloud Computing is the framework in which software and other services are provided by a hosting company over the internet. It’s just like sharing getting the power supply. Consumers pay for only the softwares they use through the cloud network. Users need not pay any attention to upgrading or maintenance, as that is looked after by the service providers. Scalability and the freedom to utilize the services across several devices and locations contribute significantly to the cost effectiveness of such services.

A novel concept, it has recently found its biggest admirer in Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer who sees a paradigm shift in the way businesses manage their assets pertaining to hardware and software. So I say, let the clouds come in and bring with the rain of fresh perspective to all!

Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices on-demand. The name cloud computing was inspired by the cloud symbol that’s often used to represent the Internet in flowchart and diagrams. It is a general term for anything involves delivering hosted service over internet. These services are divided into following three categories.

* Infrastructure as a service (IAAS)
* Platform as a service (PAAS)
* Software as a service (SAAS)

A new generation of computing that utilizes distant servers for data storage and management, allowing the device to use smaller and more efficient chips that consume less energy than standard computers. In these applications, the software comes from the Web Servers, and the data may be saved on the servers as well.

Cloud computing is a better way to run for the small and medium business. One of the advantages of cloud computing are those both small and medium sized businesses can instantly obtain the benefits of the enormous infrastructure without having to implement and administer it directly.

This also permits accessibility to multiple data centers anywhere on the globe. You would have no need for a hard drive or a CD/DVD drive. Instead you would need only an Internet connection, which would hook you up to a central supercomputer that would host all your programs and files. This presents and advantage to both storage and security issues. When we use any application that runs in the cloud, we just log in, customize it, and start using it. That’s the power of cloud computing.
