The Cloud

Cloud computing, sometimes called “the cloud,” delivers needed computing resources on demand. This is done metered over the internet on pay-per-use plan. Availability of needed resources is immediate by self-service. Applications that run on distant computers “in the cloud” are owned and operated by other companies that connect to users’ computers through the internet.

An important feature of cloud computing is that no data is lost if your computer fails, as data is stored in the cloud. Additionally, any connected computer can access applications and data files.

Cloud provides companies on a pay-per-use basis for such resources as storage, networking, and servers. The costs involved with purchasing underlying hardware, software, and serving as host are avoided.

Other innovative services are available as needed. Very broadly, cloud-based computing will provide the requirements for a total construction of financially feasible web-based cloud applications, available within minutes.

Public clouds offer rapid access over a public network to affordable computing resources. They are owned and operated by companies that offer the access. Users need not purchase hardware, software, or supporting infrastructure, as the cloud providers own them.

Resources might include data analysis, innovative business applications, and management of transactions.

A private cloud is operated solely for a single organization. Private clouds are managed internally or by a third party, with the host being either internal or outside. Private clouds provide more control, as they can take advantage of cloud’s efficient operations.

A hybrid cloud uses private cloud as its foundation, in conjunction with the integration and use of services provided by public cloud. A private cloud cannot be isolated from the company’s IT resources and the public cloud. Hybrid clouds develop as a natural consequence when an evolution takes place as most companies with private clouds will manage workloads across data centers, private clouds, and public clouds. Sensitive data or applications can be kept in the company’s data center or private cloud. Hybrids also make transporting data, services, and applications easier with more choices of usage.
