In the past couple of years, cloud computing has emerged as a disruptive force in the information technology (IT) industry. Its impact is of the same magnitude as the Internet and offshoring. Gartner Research has identified cloud computing as one of the “top 10 disruptive technologies 2008–2012.” According to Gartner, a disruptive technology is one that causes major change in the accepted way of doing things. For developers, architects, and operations, cloud computing has caused a major shift in the way of architecting, developing, deploying, and maintaining software services.

Cloud computing democratizes IT, similar to how the Internet democratized the consumer industry. The Internet opened up a vast ocean of accessible resources to consumers, ranging from free advertising-based searching to online banking. Cloud computing is bringing similar trends to businesses small and big. Businesses can now reap the benefits of agility by simply deploying their software in someone else’s datacenter for a consumption fee. Hardware costs are out of the equation because of cloud service providers. These may sound like the hosting companies you already host your web sites on, but the big difference is that this is now a utility model built on highly scalable datacenter platforms. The cloud-computing wave is powerful enough for a company like Microsoft to start disrupting its own business model to invest in the opportunity.
