Full-time-sharing solutions were available by the early 1970s on such platforms as Multics (on GE hardware), Cambridge CTSS, and the earliest UNIX ports (on DEC hardware).
Yet, the "data center" model where users submitted jobs to operators to run on IBM mainframes was overwhelmingly predominant.
Cloud computing has opened new opportunities to the young businessmen who do not have enough money to develop their own infrastructure and create powerful data-centers for the company, but can use the Internet or the cloud and use the ready-made service there which possesses much space and high speed of data transmission.
Cloud computing is an extremely important service which makes people’s life easier and more convenient.
People do not have to spend money and develop their own infrastructure, because they can rent the space and the power of the Internet.
Another plus is the easy access, because a client can reach his disc with his data from any part of the world from any computer facility at a moment’s notice.
A student should take advantage of the exclusively up-to-date information for the analysis of the topic.
One should explain the term ‘cloud computing’ and define its main components and principle of its work.
The term cloud was used to refer to platforms for distributed computing as early as 1993, when Apple spin-off General Magic and AT&T used it in describing their (paired) Telescript and Persona Link technologies."The beauty of Telescript ...
is that now, instead of just having a device to program, we now have the entire Cloud out there, where a single program can go and travel to many different sources of information and create sort of a virtual service. The example Jim White [the designer of Telescript, X.400 and ASN.1] uses now is a date-arranging service where a software agent goes to the flower store and orders flowers and then goes to the ticket shop and gets the tickets for the show, and everything is communicated to both parties." this terminology was mostly associated with large vendors such as IBM and DEC.
