Understanding Cloud Computing

Understanding Cloud Computing

Data Storage for Businesses

Cloud Computing services are distinct in their makeup and certainly different from traditional hosting processes. Cloud Computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store and manage data. The service does not require a local server or a personal computer. Cloud computing keeps all information off-site and provides a number of different advantages. Companies will no longer have to deal with servers and companies are assured their data is protected.

The cloud can be used to:

  • Create new apps and services
  • Store, backup, and recover data
  • Host websites and blogs
  • Stream audio and video
  • Deliver software on demand
  • Analyze data for patterns and make predictions

Another feature of cloud computing is that it is elastic. This means a user can dictate the amount of service needed at any given time which will be fully managed by the provider. Some of the reasons cloud computing have become so popular is because it provides significant innovations in virtualization and distributed computing.

Configured to be either private or public, the cloud is able to switch comfortably between the two while providing necessary services on both sides.

The main difference is that the public cloud can sell services to anyone on the internet. While the private cloud functions more as a proprietary network or that supplies hosted services to a limited group. However, the end goal of the cloud would be to provide easy and scalable access to computing resources and IT services.

Business Advantages using Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing’s infrastructure as a service allows a company to pay for the capacity needed. The platform used the cloud is defined as a set of software and/or product development tools that are hosted on the provider’s infrastructure.

For some cloud computing is a paradigm, where information is permanently stored in servers on the internet and cached temporarily on clients. Cloud Computing models are not owned by the users but are instead rented or paid for when needed.

Cloud computing’s most compelling attraction is the lower costs involved in utilizing the cloud tool. This will help the companies to focus on their goods and services rather than having to come with funds to constantly upgrade their computer systems.

The lowering of the technology-based capital does not affect access to devices and locations independently. This enables the user access to systems anywhere and anytime.

There is also better overall performance, load balancing and even locating data processes with much lower overall costs involved when comparisons are made with the older and more conventional methods previously used in traditional hosting processes.
