Demystifying the Cloud : drawing the Lines between Technologies and Concepts

  • In recent years the term Cloud has become popular in the world of technology. It is used to describe many different Information Technology offerings, but people are adapting this word without truly understanding it. “Demystifying the Cloud – Drawing the Lines between Technologies and Concepts” by Kevin Arnot takes a look at many levels of the Cloud and gives a comprehensive overview of the technologies and ideas that make it a paradigm shift. The author analyzes the term methodically by leveraging appropriate information from the Internet as well as from experts. An important milestone in understanding the Cloud accurately is differentiating between its components. These include: underlying technologies, the three Cloud Service Models (SaaS, IaaS and PaaS) and how it is deployed, publically or privately. The result is to understand that a Cloud can be composed in different ways and therefore serves exactly the needs of its users. Furthermore, the author describes challenges that individuals and busi-nesses have to deal with equally and reviews possible solutions. Cloud technology will continue to evolve; however, the future business value of the term “Cloud” will depend on how companies continue using or misusing it.
