A cloud refers to a distinct IT environment that is designed for the purpose of remotely provisioning scalable and measured IT resources. The term originated as a metaphor for the Internet which is, in essence, a network of networks providing remote access to a set of decentralized IT resources. Prior to cloud computing becoming its own formalized IT industry segment, the symbol of a cloud was commonly used to represent the Internet in a variety of specifications and mainstream documentation of Web-based architectures.

Cloud Computing can be defined as delivering computing power( CPU, RAM, Network Speeds, Storage OS software) a service over a network (usually on the internet) rather than physically having the computing resources at the customer location.

Cloud computing decreases the hardware and software demand from the user’s side. The only thing that user must be able to run is the cloud computing systems interface software, which can be as simple as Web browser, and the Cloud network takes care of the rest. We all have experienced cloud computing at some instant of time, some of the popular cloud services we have used or we are still using are mail services like gmail, hotmail or yahoo etc.

B.Sc (Cloud Computing), aims to develop students both technically and personally and produce broad based graduates of high academic and practical standards to match the need of both Indian and global IT industry. Here students will learn the techniques in the delivery of computing services- servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and more-over the internet (“the cloud”). Students shall have the opportunity to master in the basics of three broad categories of cloud services- Iaas (Infrastructure as a service), Paas (Platform as a services ) and Saas (Software as a service) alongwith having hands on training (OJT) on their different modules.
