Executive Summary

Cloud computing promises to radically change the way computer applications and services are constructed, delivered, and managed. Although the term means different things to different people, and includes a bit of marketing hype and technical redefinition, the potential benefits are clear. Large datacenters permit resource sharing across hosted applications and lead to economies of scale at both the hardware and software level. Software services can obtain seemingly infinite scalability and incremental growth to meet customers' elastic demands. The pay-as-you-go model and rapid provisioning can result in more efficient resource utilization and reduced costs.
