Introduction to Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing

All of us love to have smart high-end devices at our fingertips connected  to internet all the time but not everyone will be able to have that dream turn to  real. Many businesses have their servers always connected to internet and keep  worrying of various factors like servers getting compromised by hackers,  heating issues, long and improper maintenance breaks etc. What if i say that  there are a cluster of computers that are always connected to internet with high  security and even the data they store will be encrypted and highly safe. Isn’t that  interesting.  

Welcome to the era of Cloud Computing. Simply put, Cloud Computing  is the delivery of computing services—including servers, storage, databases,  networking, software, analytics, and intelligence—over the Internet (“the  Cloud”) to offer faster innovation, flexible resources, and economies of scale.  You typically pay only for cloud services you use, helping lower your operating  costs, run your infrastructure more efficiently and scale as your business needs  change. A kind of services like this will enable any person to have any level of  computing capability whenever and wheresoever they needed. Such an  architecture unchecks all the checkboxes which account to many problems users 

face to have their required computing stack at their physical hands. So well that  was a clear cut explanation of what is Cloud and Cloud Computing means.  Hence let’s dive into some of the ground level information involved in it. 

Types of Cloud Computing

Every user requires a certain requirement to be fulfilled at the same time  large scale businesses require a lot of services and interoperability but how will  this deal up? Not all clouds are the same and not one type of cloud computing is  right for everyone. Several different models, types and services have evolved to  help offer the right solution for your  needs. First, you need to determine the type of cloud deployment or cloud computing architecture, that your cloud  services will be implemented on. There are three different ways to deploy cloud services: on a public cloud, private cloud or hybrid cloud. 

  • Public Cloud : Public Cloud offers computing services over the internet  to anyone that is requiring and these services are offered by the third  party cloud service providers
  • Private Cloud : Private Cloud offers its exclusive services to businesses  or organisations. These are especially meant to have robust delivery and  high security levels.
  • Hybrid Cloud : Hybrid clouds combine public and private clouds, bound  together by technology that allows data and applications to be shared  between them.

Benefits of Cloud Computing

It would be very funny to list out the benefits of using cloud since that’s a  bottom-less bucket and that makes up to many use cases and possibilities to  anyone that’s needed. But still to mentioning few of its uses

1. Cost – Pay as much as you use their resources 

2. Speed – Most of the cloud service providers have an exceptional speed of  petabit level network transmission. 

3. Performance – It’s a dream come true for normal users to have the  possible highest computing ability at the required hour.

4. Security – The data encryption policies and physical security offered at  the data centres are unimaginable. 

5. Reliability – Any cloud service providers provide reliability services like  data backup, disaster recovery etc to all their users as a part of basic plans  itself.

By now you must have understood that on both individual and corporate  level, cloud computing is likely to change the way we use operate. The endless  opportunities unlocked by cloud is simply the future of computing.
