Cloud computing is a compelling way to deliver web-based and non-web-based applications that better utilize the physical infrastructure, while lowering costs by moving from silos of expensive customized servers to racks of cost-effective ones. Businesses of all sizes are leveraging cloud infrastructure for collaborating with their customers, partners and suppliers. Due to the elastic nature of clouds, a particular application may be delivered from one physical location at a given moment but from a different, potentially far-away location in the same cloud at a later moment. Web-based applications in clouds include internet-facing enterprise applications serving thousands of users, as well as large-scale social networking sites with millions of subscribers.
