Cloud Computing

WHAT EXACTLY IS CLOUD COMPUTING AND HOW DO YOU USE IT?

 

Cloud computing is the delivery of different services through the Internet. These resources include tools and applications like data storage, servers, databases, networking, and software.  As long as an electronic device has access to the web, it has access to the data and the software programs to run it. Cloud computing depends on resource sharing, rather than using local servers or individual devices to host applications. It mostly only allows the application software to function when internet enabled devices are used.

 

There are four types of Cloud Computing you should learn about because they serve a broad range of functions over the internet- like virtual and storage servers: applications and authorization for desktop applications.

 

THE PUBLIC CLOUD

Public cloud is best for businesses which have requirements that require managing the load; host application that is, Software-as-a-Service and manage applications which are used by many users. Public cloud computing is very economical because it has few capital overheads and operational costs.

 

THE PRIVATE CLOUD

This is also known as the internal cloud. In private cloud, cloud computing services are offered on a cloud-based secure environment. The environment is usually protected by a firewall governed by an IT department which belongs to a particular organization. In private cloud, the user is given a greater and direct control of the data.

 

Private cloud is best suited for businesses with compelling or unforeseen needs, uptime requirements, management demands and mission critical assignments.

 

THE HYBRID CLOUD

Hybrid cloud integrates both private and public clouds. It has two or more cloud servers, which can either be public, private of community cloud servers. These are usually integrated together, but still, they remain separate entities.

 

Organizations can decide to use public clouds to house non-critical resources like development and test workloads. A private cloud can be used to house critical or sensitive workloads. Hybrid cloud is well known for its scalability, security, and flexibility.

 

THE COMMUNITY CLOUD

In a community cloud, cloud resources are mutually shared between many organizations which belong to a particular community, for example, banks and trading firms. This setup is typically shared amongst several organizations belonging to a certain group, which has the same computing apprehensions.

 

Community Cloud can also be hosted internally or externally. It is usually suitable for organizations which work as joint ventures and require a centralized cloud computing ability to implement similar projects.
