Cloud computing is an emerging paradigm that aims at delivering on-demand computing to any consumer who has access to the internet. Cloud systems can run software on virtual machines that can be created on-demand in large data centres. These services will be provided through large-scale networks of new data centers, which in turn will connect to the data centers already established by organizations. As a user's demand for computing power increases, new virtual computers can be created and configured; as demand decreases, unused hardware resources can be made available again.
