Let's have a quick round up of the things that we have seen so far. First, we looked at what cloud computing actually is, and at some of the basic features and benefits that you can obtain by using it. We then learned a bit about vCloud Air and its components and service models. We also saw how easy it is to sign up and get started with the On Demand Virtual Private Cloud service.
In the next chapter, we will be learning the basics of working with virtual machines, or instances, using VMware vCloud Air.
