What is cloud computing?

Tags: Off Topic
I have been getting all this information on cloud computing in emails from Techrepublic for months. A couple of major essential pieces of information elude me.

1) What is cloud computing?
2) What can I do with it in the enterprise and at home?

Besides those two major questions, How do our end users on the network use it?

Cloud Computing Definition

by raffyplacido In reply to What is cloud computing?

According to the official NIST definition, "cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction."
Hope this helps.
