Simple analogy of Cloud Computing

In the last a few years, IT has begun to confront a disruptive storm - the cloud. The basic proposition of the cloud is that most organizations do not need to be concerned with the underlying technological details of software, hardware and infrastructures when using services and applications.

A simple analogy is found in electricity, where every household easily accesses the electric grid and consumes power for various applications (e.g., lightbulb, refrigerator, dishwasher) without having to build and maintain a personal power generator.
