Abstract

Cloud Computing represents innovation, a new wave of standard IT resources, measurable, offered "via a network", meant to change the IT landscape in the business world. Cloud computing offers to small and medium businesses (SMBs) computing resources, at a reasonable price, that were formerly available only to large enterprises. This article analyses the impact of Cloud Computing services and shows that the system between IT service suppliers and their clients, the SMBs will change drastically over the next years. At the same time is offered a case study concerning the implementation of a Cloud Computing solution for a medium business.
