cloud computing
A shared internet or network computing environment that uses a remote server for application and data management. All resources are available from these remote sources rather than installed on the local machine. In the Actuate product environment, a cloud deployment is a replicated instance of an installed BIRT iServer image that contains only the run-time environment.
Cloud computing simplifies the process of creating and maintaining a BIRT iServer cluster. On a network, nodes having the same cluster ID automatically detect each other and join to form a cluster. All nodes share the same stateless BIRT iServer image.
