Cloud Computing is the next generation in computing. It is a type of computing that is comparable to grid Computing, relies on sharing computing resources rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications. The goal of Cloud Computing is to apply traditional super computing power (normally used by military and research facilities) to perform tens of trillions of computations per second. The memorable point about this advantage is that this performance can be produced by a grid of computing resources that work together or even by the force of the low-cost PCs, like Personal PCs.
