Yahoo Cloud, is a cloud computing infrastructure that offers Yahoo developers on-demand computing capabilities, and is used by most Yahoo services and applications.

The changes made to the internal cloud will make the operation of Yahoo services more efficient, and provide Yahoo developers on-demand pre-configured platform to build services on top of in order to quickly and efficiently deploy applications. Yahoo Cloud infrastructure is a combination of Infrastructure-as-a-service and Platform-as-a-service.

By releasing its cloud serving platform in open source, Yahoo will differentiate itself from Google which keeps its cloud serving platform internal.
