Chapter 1. Overview of Cloud Computing

Chapter 1. Overview of Cloud Computing

Welcome to the cloud computing revolution currently sweeping through the IT landscape. It might be slightly confusing as to why we are starting a book on PC management with an introduction to cloud computing, however, the management service you are signing up for is a cloud based solution, with benefits and challenges that need to be addressed and planned for.

Through this chapter we will understand what cloud computing is and how it compares to the traditional on-premise computing models of today. We will then discuss what this means to us when relying on the Windows Intune Service and highlight other cloud computing services that we might want to use, or perhaps already be using from the cloud.
