It is the optional availability of data storage and computing power, in particular, without effective management of computer system resources directly by the user. The term is often used to describe data centers that many users can access over the Internet.
The Benefits of Cloud Computing?
Cloud Computing supplies resources to the end user without the need for technical knowledge of the systems that provide them. In addition, the Cloud can provide users with a much wider range of applications and scalable and tailored services to businesses.
Cloud Computing brings many benefits to the end user, including:
- Access to a wide variety of applications without the need to download or install anything;
- The ability to access applications from any computer anywhere in the world;
- Savings on hardware and software costs as users only use what they need;
- The ability of companies to share resources in one place;
- Savings as consumption are billed as a utility with minimal upfront cost;
- Scalability via on-demand resources.
There are several differences between traditional hosting and Cloud hosting:
- Cloud Computing is sold on demands;
- The service is managed by the provider;
- Users can determine the amount of service they need;
- Users can log on to the network from any computer in the world.
Our Cloud Computing Services
Cloud Computing has brought together a set of technologies that can deliver scalable, tailored and virtualized IT resources and applications over the Internet. There are three main types of Cloud Computing:
Software As A Service
is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. It is sometimes referred to as “on-demand software”, and was formerly referred to as “software plus services” by Microsoft.
Platform As A Service
is a category of cloud computing services that provides a platform allowing customers to develop, run, and manage applications without the complexity of building and maintaining the infrastructure typically associated with developing and launching an app.
Infrastructure As A Service
is online services that provide high-level APIs used to dereference various low-level details of underlying network infrastructure like physical computing resources, location, data partitioning, scaling, security, backup etc.
