Cloud Computing is an innovation ideas that helps in reducing the computing cost. Cloud Computing offers better computing through improved utilization and reduced administration and infrastructure costs. Cloud computing is the long-held dream of computing as a utility. Cloud Computing is the combination of Software as a Service (SaaS) and Utility Computing. Cloud computing shares characteristics with autonomic computing, peer to peer, grid computing, client server model, mainframe computer and utility computing. It has various open source resources which gives different platform for better computing utilization. Cloud computing are managed by Cloud Management tools, loaded and tested by various other software testing tools. Cloud computing modelling and simulation is done by CloudSim or SPECI or GroundSim or DCSim on the basis of testing benchmark. The application of Cloud Computing is discussed.
