On-demand

Hi,

 

I'm new to cloud development. Whenever and wherever I read about cloud computing, i find 'on-demand' word. What does it mean in context of cloud. Can anyone put more light on it.

 

Thanks

Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. Because this frame work is such that you can build any application from 0 to 60% very rapidly ( almost on demand ). Just need to add your business logic. Thats why you see 'on-demand'  word every where.

 

I hope it will help you understand the word on-demand in reference to cloud computing.
