PHP and the Cloud

in PHP added by CalEvans, on 1/4/2009 Amazon cloud computing

Cloud computing refers to the utilization of shared, elastic resources and processing power accessed via the Internet. In some ways, it hails the reversion to the golden age of time-sharing but with significant improvements to the distribution philosophies underlying the delivery infrastructure.
