What is Cloud Computing? How can it help your Business?

Published: Feb 23, 2015  |   | 

What is Cloud Computing

The term “Cloud Computing” is heard everywhere, with most of the people unsure about what it is. We unknowingly use Cloud services like social networking sites, email communication, online backup solutions, Google Drive, YouTube, Skydrive, Dropbox and many others, without knowing what “the cloud” means.

Cloud Computing is a network of servers seamlessly interconnected on the internet that allows storing and retrieving your data and information over the internet instead of your computer’s hard drive, giving you access to your data anywhere in the world.

There are three types of cloud services available:

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)

IaaS provides Cloud Computing infrastructure that includes servers, storage, network, data centers and operating system. It gives virtualized computing resources over the internet on a pay-per-user basis. Its resources are scalable and can be adjusted on demand where users are required to pay only for the resources they use.

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

PaaS provides a platform on which users can run their applications without the need of physical management of software and infrastructure underlying beneath them. Through PaaS the development, testing, deployment and maintenance of applications become fast and cost-effective.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

SaaS refers to software being deployed in internet, where users can get access to software applications by payment of a subscription fee. It is nothing but a ‘pay-as-you-go’ model where users don’t require buying expensive licensed programs. In SaaS everything including applications, servers, data centers, databases and more are managed by the service providers.
