Cloud computing is clearly one of the hottest topics today in IT. There are compelling financial justifications for exploring cloud computing in nearly any size organization. From rapid deployment to try-before-buy to disaster recovery to demand scaling to mobile application delivery, there are many advantages of the cloud computing architecture. Along with these advantages, there will be architectural differences in how applications are delivered to the end users. Cloud computing will have a profound impact on how IT delivers information services to the rest of the company. In many cases this application delivery will shift outside of traditional, local data center delivery, to external cloud based resources.
