What is Cloud Computing?Cloud computing takes its name from the cloud shapes in schematic drawings used to depict the early Internet. The concepts that make up cloud computing reach back to timesharing in the 1960s and utility computing in recent decades. Virtualization, the ability to create pools of computing resources separate from the underlying hardware, is the most recent phenomenon to be absorbed into the cloud nebula.
