Today’s trendings in IT bring us closer to infrastructure virtualization and its’ availability in the cloud service shape. Thanks to this kind of architecture, the end user can access to the provided services from any location and any kind of device. The information becomes easily accessible regardless of whether the end user is at home, at his business partner’s office or any other location, and regardless of the device he’s using – his computer, smart-phone or tablet.

Cloud concept first apeared as a solution for scalability of hardware resources, which was later applied on software too. Today’s cloud solutions offer full abstraction of hardware infrastructures, which makes the work much simpler for the IT department using such systems: hardware maintenance, hard disk and server replacements, etc. become completely transparent in cloud environment. Cloud provider performs all those activities for the system user, and also guarantees data backups and replications.

The appearence of SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions were the logical next step in virtualization. The user is being offered a new level of abstraction and a large number of problems dissapeared such as the OS choice, database choice, software compatibility, etc. Service providers takes the responsibility to solve all of those, which leaves much more time for the users to focus on their own business requirements.
