Cloud computing is the convergence and evolution of several concepts from virtualization, distributed application design, grid and enterprise IT management to enable a more flexible approach for deploying and scaling applications. The cloud promises real costs savings and agility to customers. Through cloud computing, a company can rapidly deploy applications where the underlying technology components can expand and contract with the natural ebb and flow of the business life cycle Traditionally, once an application was deployed it was bound to a particular infrastructure, until the infrastructure was upgraded. The result was low efficiency, utilization and flexibility. Cloud enablers such as virtualization and grid computing allow applications to be dynamically deployed onto the most suitable infrastructure at run time.
