Ikechukwu Nwobodo
Abstract—Cloud computing continues to maintain a rapid growth while constituting a viable alternative to conventional computing. Cloud computing is an emerging business computing model that enable users access to IT resources via internet infrastructure at any PC connected node across the globe without hardware constraints. Cloud computing concept is a development trend based on several successful researches in computing areas such as virtualization, grid computing, cluster computing and distributed computing. Cloud, cluster and grid computing share some common features towards achieving utility or service oriented computing although marginal differences exist on their processes and approaches in many ways. This paper will be exploring the evolutionary relationships in terms of features and component of cloud computing technological innovation in comparison to cluster and grid computing.

Index Terms—Cloud computing, grid computing, cluster computing, utility computing.
