European Cloud Computing are offering
Cloud Service Provider (CSP) program
januari 2010
European Cloud computing now offers a CSP program for Service Providers and Technological companies who supply turnkey Cloud computing infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to their customers. for more information about his program , click here.

Cloud Computing is devided into 3 categories :
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).
With IaaS the customer has more freedom of use than with the SaaS solution. In accordance more knowledge and maintenance is needed when using IaaS.

In general, cloud computing customers do not own the physical infrastructure, instead avoiding Capital expenditure by renting usage from a third-party provider. They consume resources Everything as a service and pay only for resources that they use. Many cloud-computing offerings employ the Utility computing model, which is analogous to how traditional utility services (such as Electricity are consumed), whereas others bill on a subscription basis.

Sharing “perishable and intangible” computing power Multitenancy can improve utilization rates, as servers are not unnecessarily left idle (which can reduce costs significantly while increasing the speed of application development). A side-effect of this approach is that overall computer usage rises dramatically, as customers do not have to engineer for peak load limits. In addition, “increased high-speed bandwidth” makes it possible to receive the same response times from centralized infrastructure at other sites.
