The Cloud or cloud computing is a term for anything that involves delivering hosted IT services over the Internet.  These services are broadly divided into three categories: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

A cloud service has three distinct characteristics that differentiate it from traditional IT hosting. It is sold on demand; it is elastic meaning the user can have as much or as little of a service as they want at any given time; and the service is fully managed by the provider.

A cloud can be private, public or community based.  A public cloud sells services to anyone on the Internet.  A private cloud is a proprietary network or a data centre that supplies hosted services to a limited number of people and a community cloud is a collaborative effort in which infrastructure is shared between several organisations from a specific community with common concerns.

The goal of cloud computing is to provide easy, scalable access to computing resources and IT services however moving from an in-house data centre to a cloud environment is not always a simple task and once you have moved to the cloud there are additional challenges you face.
