- A brief history of the cloud:
computing will be determined by economic rationale, rather than technical
limits alone.” This somewhat ponderous description rings true in describing
the Cloud’s evolution.
In the the early 2000's, companies like Amazon and Salesforce started a new
model known as Infrastructure as a service which provided solutions to scaling infrastructure and reduced operational overhead via the on-demand delivery
of compute power, database storage, applications, and other IT resources
through a cloud services platform via the internet with pay-as-you-go pricing.
