Cloud Computing is not a new concept. In the 1960s, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Project MAC, a collaborative project on Mathematics and Computation, already carried out computer networking experiments.In 1969, a Computer Networks group was created in order to allow people on different computers and in different locations to access and share the programs and information located on a single computer.It was the beginning of what it was later going to be known as Cloud Computing. One of those gigantic, archaic IBM computers using reels of magnetic tape for memory acted as a primitive Cloud with two or three people accessing it. The cloud expands its territory and becomes a distributed cloud. This is the distribution of public cloud services to different locations while the originating public cloud provider assumes responsibility for the operation, governance, updates to and evolution of the services. According to industry analyst Gartner's report, this represents a significant shift from the centralized model of most public cloud services and will lead to a new era in cloud computing. READ MORE
