Cloud computing is the deployment of software, platform and infrastructure as a service by a third-party provider to consumers on a pay-as-you-go basis with the opportunity of expanding and contracting their service requirements as needed. It allows business organizations to utilize models that allow them to focus more on competence which improves their productivity. Cloud computing offers numerous advantages which include pervasiveness, scalability, flexibility, and automated provisioning of resources to name a few.
