Don’t let cloud computing and virtualization services confuse you.  We’ve broken it down for you below.

What is cloud computing?

Cloud Computing & virtualization Services

Cloud computing is a general term for anything that involves delivering hosted services over the Internet. These services are broadly divided into three categories:

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

Think of cloud computing as a utility service, much like you would have at home. It’s a pay-as-you-go service. Computing power is stored in the cloud and you can use what you need when you need it, and when you’re done with it, it gets released back to the cloud.

What is virtualization?

Virtualization is the creation of a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, such as an operating system, a server, a storage device or network resources. The goal is to centralize administrative tasks while improving scalability and work loads. The seven types of virtualization that contribute to what is called Autonomic Computing are: hardware, desktop, software, storage, memory, data and network. The autonomic computing model is one in which you have systems that are self-managing and capable of high-level functioning while keeping the complexity of the systems invisible to the user.
