BENEFITS OF CLOUD COMPUTING
Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote multiple servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage and process data. It is evolving with companies of all shapes and sizes adapting to the technology based on their requirements.
In the past, people would run applications or programs from software downloaded on a physical server. Cloud Computing relies on shared pool of computing resources (networks, servers, applications, storage and services).
Cloud computing promotes service availability and is composed of five essential characteristics (resource pooling, measured service, rapid elasticity, broad network access and on-demand self-service).

A Look Ahead to ICANN61 in Puerto Rico
With the end of ICANN60, the preparations for ICANN61 have commenced. ICANN61 will be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, from 10th
March 2018 and will mark the first time since 2014 that an ICANN meeting would be hosted in the North American region.
Based on assessment, ICANN60 was a successful and productive meeting. With the ICANN Annual General Meeting – this was the longest meeting of the year and focused on outreach and engagement, in addition to the development of policies that is the hallmark of every ICANN meeting.
Under the ICANN Meeting Strategy, the San Juan meeting is classified as a Community Forum. This is a six-day meeting that will feature several dedicated time slots to “intra” and “inter” community work. The format of this meeting is conducive to what ICANN calls “inreach.” This provides a chance for the ICANN community to come together and share their goals and aspirations, as well as some of the challenges they are encountering as they strive to ensure a secure, stable, and inter-operable Internet for all.
ICANN61 promises to be another engaging, productive (and fun) meeting.
