Cloud Computing Project 2016 - 2017
1. resources as a utility -- just like electricity -- rather than having to build and maintain computing infrastructures in-house.
2. Self-service provisioning: End users can spin up computing resources for almost any type of workload on-demand.
3. Elasticity: Companies can scale up as computing needs increase and then scale down again as demands decrease.
4. Pay per use: Computing resources are measured at a granular level, allowing users to pay only for the resources and workloads they use.
