This paper presents a selected short review on Cloud Computing by explaining its evolution, history, and definition of cloud computing. Cloud computing is not a brand-new technology, but today it is one of the most emerging technology due to its powerful and important force of change the manner data and services are managed. This paper does not only contain the evolution, history, and definition of cloud computing, but it also presents the characteristics, the service models, deployment models and roots of the cloud.
