Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Cloud computing as a style of computing in which scalable and flexible IT-enabled capabilities are provided as a service using Internet technologies.

Cloud is usually a virtual server or a combination of virtual servers available on the Internet where information is centralized and information accessibility is globalized, on-demand.

Basically, the fluffy white stuff i.e. cloud it is nothing but a cluster of dedicated servers connected together in a single network. The virtual edition of servers gives cloud its unique attribute and ability to centralize the data and reduce the complexity of data management- A good reason for the HYPE.

For all industrial applications based on Cloud environment its very beneficial to implement the concept of Cloud scalability. For effective functioning, cloud needs to be designed with the provision of everlasting abstract scalability which can be controlled by service, if included in an architecture of cloud-based application.

    To get started in "cloud computing", send the phrase through a Google search and read the results that are listed. Then buy and read books on the subject. Then start taking college courses in the subject.

    The questions is, what is your background? I have one in storage, and cloud computing is much like storage, if not all. So before you go into cloud computing, you may want to try SAN/NAS first.

    my advice is to go for Comptia Cloud+ Certification, it will give all basic and intermediate knowledge, later you can chose different vendors i.e vmware, Microsoft, redhad, and also you can move to cloud security.
