Executive Summary

Cloud computing as a technology trend is capturing the imagination of many. There are several definitions for this term to be inclusive of "everything" as a service - software to flexible computing infrastructure. Ease of solution deployment is attractive to IT solution developers. Dramatic cost advantages are truly compelling for the users of flexible computing infrastructure. Cloud computing also represents a paradigm shift from owned IT infrastructure to using software applications, computing and storage as services over a wide-area distribution network such as the internet. This trend is being enabled by quantum performance improvement in the IT infrastructure components combined with enabling technologies such as virtualization, distributed computing, multi-core processors, service-oriented architectures and key innovations in the way cloud computing infrastructure is built.
