English abstract

In the last few years, the implementation of the cloud computing is emerging as a business concept to one of the fastest growing segments of the IT industry. Thus, resources would be switched on the application of need, which could be accessed to computing and storage system as the requirement of the user. Cloud computing can be useful for library automation and digital library resources to improve information sharing capabilities, improve resource utilization and user can retrieve data from anywhere. This paper introduces the foundation of cloud computing with the basic technologies, such as the virtualization and web services. It also explains the Cloud computing architecture and the purpose of applying it in the libraries and the merits, features, types of services to be selected before putting the data in the cloud and how the information is shared by using the cloud. Some case studies of organizations which have put their data in cloud are included.
