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.
