Since it accesses ‘virtual’ resources, cloud computing is not limited by the power and capabilities of local or remote computers.
For zones cloud computing is almost an ideal configuration.
Think of a zone as supplying water, electricity and other services. Now add computing. That is cloud computing which offers a simplified, centralized platform for use when needed. It lowers costs, makes the computer you access as powerful as you wish and saves on energy.
The industrial park worked with IBM to create a cloud-computing center, which it hosts for its tenants. (On May 14 we reported that it was planned to happen. Now it is reality. It is set in one of the most scenic parts of China and care has been taken not to disturb the surroundings.)
Cloud computing is now part of the industrial park’s infrastructure, along with heat, lights and water.
For software startups, this means lower costs in developing products. They avoid buying and operating their own servers, applications or tools and pay only for the IT services they actually use.
