What is Cloud?

Definition of Cloud?

I usually answer this question with this mechanism (from my perspective)
You can ask “What”, “Where”, When”, “How”, “Why” to answer that question.

  1. What? >> it is collection of IT resources (such as compute, storage, artificial intelligence, function, framework, applications, etc)
  2. Where? >> it can be accessed from the internet, so literally anywhere around the earth
  3. When? >> it can be access anytime you want, no time or schedule limitation
  4. How? >> you can use it per-usage based. you want it, you get it. pay as used.

Why Cloud? (I will elaborate this more later on, but it is because of…)

  1. Agility
  2. Utility based cost
  3. Elasticity
  4. Breadth of Services
  5. Go Global in minutes
