Cloud computing refers to the use of Internet ("cloud") based computer technology for a variety of services. It is a style of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualisedresources are provided as a service over the Internet. Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them.

This whitepaper explores the reasons behind changing traditional desktop computing strategies, why cloud-hosted virtual desktops are a compelling solution for many businesses and how to leverage cliud-hosted desktops for windows 7 migrations, mobile and departmental workers, and disaster recovery scenarios.
This white paper will deliver data that provides valuable information based on real compute scenarios to assist buyers of cloud services in understanding how their workloads might perform and what costs are associated with those environments across multiple cloud computing platforms BEFORE they invest in the selection of a cloud computing provider.
The world’s largest organizations are adopting cloudbased infrastructure and services at a dizzying pace. Software as a service (SaaS) offerings such as Salesforce.com and Microsoft Office 365 are among the more popular cloud-based services. When moving services to the cloud, data centers are no longer local, so the end user experience can suffer. A poor or congested Internet connection between the user and the cloud service will mean sluggish application delivery that puts a damper on user productivity and ultimately threatens application usage.
This report explains how a new generation of secure, enterprise cloud services creates the opportunity to mitigate many of these security challenges by centralizing documents onto a single cloud platform.
