Cloud Computing Resources and Tutorials

Cloud Computing Overview

In the cloud computing model, IT resources are accessed over the Internet (or another network) as a service.

A private cloud generally limits access to those resources, often has computing resources onsite, and is under more direct control by the customer using the service.
