What is a "cloud"?

The primary challenge for any enterprise is to provide the highest quality product or service at the lowest possible cost. Cloud computing is the perfect tool to fulfil this goal by enabling businesses to use high quality software and IT resources more effectively and efficiently than ever before. How is this possible?

Cloud is just another phase of IT development, which will be crucial to the way we deliver and use IT services. By implementing a cloud computing system, the IT department will be able to offer a more efficient, flexible, and cost-effective model of using its services. Making systems from the ground up will be replaced by creating a configuration from a pool of available and universal resources. Such a mechanism is determined by the economy and the increasing competitiveness of the market. That is why market analysts agree: cloud computing is the future of IT development in every company.
