What is the difference between cloud computing and distributed computing?

0 votes
I wanted to know about the difference between cloud computing and distributed computing. I read an article which was based on cloud computing and got a feeling that somewhere there is a relation between cloud computing and distributed computing and so wanted to ask about difference between technologies.

If someone knows it do let me know.

Thanks

The difference between these two technologies are as follows,

Distributed computing involves dividing a large problem into smaller slices and having multiple networked computers process the slices.

Cloud computing usually refers to providing a service via the internet. That service can be pretty much anything, from business software that is accessed via the web to off-site storage or computing resources.
