The IBM Lightning Cloud Podcast.
Cloud computing typically implies a large pool of available virtual resources, including servers, storage, and even network resources. For our clients, perhaps the most important characteristic is the ability to obtain and release these resources within minutes.
This is a highly elastic, pay-as-you-go, pay-for-what-you-use IT model, often priced as low as 10 cents per compute hour. Businesses can provision large, sophisticated IT infrastructures with a few mouse clicks during periods of high demand, and just as quickly de-provision them when the demand subsides.
Using cloud, our clients can reduce costs, be more agile, or create entirely new applications that leverage the unprecedented scale of the cloud.
