Great graphic giving some basics on cloud computing. Almost any web host now can offer cloud computing simply based on their infrastructure. However, true cloud computing is pay as you go for what you use. Meaning you only pay for the CPU cycles, disk space, and bandwidth used by visitors to your site or that use your SaaS. GearHost, for example, uses cloud computing-like technology but we offer classic hosting plans with limits. In the very near future we may be offering a single ala cart plan that allow customers to purchase only what they need.
