2.3% of the global market.

Cloud Computing Precursors
Client-Server Model Distributed applications which distinguish between providers (or servers), and clients.

Grid Computing: A virtual computer, composed of a cluster of networked, coupled computers (in order to perform larger tasks).

Peer-to-Peer: Participants are both suppliers and consumers, using distributed architecture without the need for centralization.

Service-Oriented Computing: Like cloud computing, this service oriented version implements computing techniques, leveraging software-as-a-service.
