Cloud computing is a major departure from the traditional IT service delivery model. Services are no longer tied to dedicated hardware silos.

They move freely about the infrastructure, delivering services when and where they are needed. But this doesn’t mean that you have to completely reinvent IT to implement cloud computing.
