Cloud computing is a style of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources are provided as a service. Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure in the "Cloud" that supports them and all its explanation. The authors are on the verge of a new era in computing, in which innovative software running on intelligent devices ("Clients"), complemented by Internet-based data storage and services (the "Cloud"), will offer users more engaging, seamless experiences across their computers, cell phones and other devices.
