Everything else is an adaptation on top of one or more of these utilities. Compute Cloud computational resources are services that enable you to execute a set of instructions on a physical processor. Access can be provided as a virtual machine, platform or framework, or even an API that enables you to execute code. Any way you want to use it, these services enable you to execute a block of code against input data, which produces output data. As the compute service is an essential building block for other services, many cloud providers actually abstract this layer and instead provide you with a framework.

1). Eventually these mainframe舗s got smaller, but you were still forced to interact with them via these thin clients. 1. The mainframe. These mainframes were designed to run a single process quickly, so there was no need to even think about parallel processing; everything was simply done in sequence. Mainframes needed a complicated scheduling system so that they could allot a given amount of time to any single process but enable others to interject requests in between. This method of client-server interaction was a huge leap forward from the original system with only one interface to a computer.

Indeed, it turned out that having many smaller computers was not only more affordable, but also helped provide that scalability and availability that they needed. Unfortunately for most companies, to have this scalability and availability, they would need to purchase a large amount of machines upfront, costing thousands if not millions of dollars for applications that may require only a fraction of that capacity at most times. After the large dot-com bubble in the 1990s, Amazon discovered that it was using less than 10% of its overall capacity during most normal business hours just so it could have expandability for when major events happened.
