Cloud computing is becoming popular and it is expected most organizations will have some applications on it. Describe what applications would be suitable for cloud computing. Give examples
Answer by Mr. Smartypants
Cloud computing is using an entire network of storage, printing, etc. as a single computer. It’s just a way for users of a network to be more ‘in touch’.
Applications. Well, word processing for instance. All the official company documents will come up in a single folder, as if they were all on your own machine, even though they’re really distributed over many computers in the company. This includes reports, drawings, advertising, procedures and instructions, etc. etc. that are used throughout the company.
Databases are another application. If you want a report on an employee you don’t have to ask the Personnel Dept to send you a report, you can access the database yourself, from anywhere in the company (with the right permissions, of course).
My GF was a technical writer, writing instruction manuals for software. At any given moment, she could access the latest revision of the software and try different parts of it to use for her instructions. And the people using the software in-house could access the latest parts of her manual.
There are collaborative projects that have many people working on them, often on different continents. With cloud computing, everyone is working in the same ‘space’. Like two mechanics working on different parts of the came car, except one is in Philadelphia and the other is in Jerusalem. But at any time you can compile the project, or print it out, and everyone’s latest changes are there. Pretty cool if you think about it.

VMworld 2010 Europe, VMware Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, continued to expand its strategy for modern IT infrastructures, announcing new and enhanced products and programs to help enterprises and service providers achieve the benefits of cloud computing while maintaining the control and freedom of choice they require.
Introduced at VMworld 2010 in San Francisco, IT as a Service is the transformation of IT to a more business-centric approach, focusing on outcomes such as operational efficiency, competitiveness and rapid response. This means IT will shift from producing IT services to optimizing production and consumption of those services in ways consistent with business requirements. This will change the role of IT from a cost center to a center of strategic value.
“The transformation of IT infrastructure to a hybrid cloud model has begun,” said Raghu Raghuram, senior vice president and general manager, Virtualization and Cloud Platforms, VMware. “VMware continues to drive this next generation of IT forward with solutions for enterprises and service providers that promise to redefine IT’s relationship with its business partners and enable IT services to be consumed when and how they best serve the goals of the business.”
The VMware cloud infrastructure and management vision is an evolutionary model of IT infrastructure based on virtualization that unifies hybrid, private and public cloud resource pools with consistent security, compliance, management and quality of service. Building on the VMware vSphere™ foundation, the cloud infrastructure products and services VMware announced in August at VMworld 2010 in San Francisco – VMware vCloud™ Director, the VMware vShield™ product family and VMware vCloud Datacenter Services – introduced a hybrid cloud model that seamlessly bridges private and public clouds.
VMware is also expanding its VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), more than doubling the number of products available to participants and introducing new, simpler pay-for-use bundles and licensing. The addition of VMware vCloud Director, the Zimbra™ Collaboration Suite, the VMware vShield product family, VMware vCenter CapacityIQ, and several other VMware products will allow VSPP service providers to expand their offerings beyond infrastructure services to include platform as a service, desktop as a service, email hosting and many other incremental cloud services.
A cornerstone of the VMware vCloud Initiative, the VSPP provides pay-for-use licensing, market development funding, access to software and other programs to help service providers grow their businesses. Since its launch in 2008, the VSPP has experienced rapid growth with more than 2,900 service providers in the program today and 145 percent growth in the last 12 months.
