Cloud computing

Frae Wikipedia, the free beuk o knawledge
Cloud computing metaphor: the group o networked elements providing services need nae be individually addressed or managed bi uisers; insteid, the entire provider-managed suite o hardware an software can be thought o as an amorphous cloud.

Cloud computing is an information technology (IT) paradigm that allous on-demand access tae shared pools o configurable system resources an hiecher-level services wi'oot the uiser ha'en tae configure it, an that can be rapidly provisioned wi minimal management effort, often iver the Internet.[1] Cloud computing relies on sharing o resoorces tae achieve coherence an economies o scale, similar tae a public utility.[2][3] Houiver fur some heich uiser companies, the revenue cost for services micht affect profit margins whaun compare't tae an IT ciapital purchase.[4]
