Confused about Cloud Computing, what it means and what it can do for your business? 

 

Cloud Computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers (off site) hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.

 

Cloud computing is a general term for delivering fast, hosted services over the Internet. These services are broadly divided into three categories:

 

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Platform as a Service  (PaaS)

Software as a Service (SaaS)

 

The name cloud was inspired by the symbol that's often used to represent the Internet in flowcharts and diagrams.

Cloud computing enables companies to consume computer resources as a utility, just like electricity, rather than having to build and maintain computing infrastructures in-house. 

 

Private cloud services are delivered from IP Technology's secure data centre to internal and external users. This model offers versatility and convenience, while preserving management, control and security.

 

Although cloud computing has changed over time, it has always been divided into three broad service categories: (IaaS), (PaaS) and (SaaS). 

Cloud computing promises several attractive benefits for businesses and end users.

Three of the main benefits of cloud computing include

 

SELF SERVICE PROVISIONING

End users can spin up computing resources for almost any type of workload on-demand.

 

ELASTICITY

Companies can scale up as computing needs increase and then scale down again as demands decrease.

 

PAY PER USE

Computing resources are measured at a granular level, allowing users to pay only for the resources and workloads they use.

 

Other benefits are that It doesn't need any effort on the customers part to maintain or manage it.

It's effectively infinite in size, so customers don't need to worry about running out of capacity.

Customers can access cloud based applications and services from anywhere in the world, all you need is a device with an Internet connection.
