- McAfee, a computer security company said, ‘Eighty-Seven percent of companies experience business acceleration from the use of cloud services.’
- As per the Right Scale’s annual State, a cloud report from Flexera in 2019, 91% of businesses used public cloud and 72% used a private one.
- According to Statista, a German online portal for statistics reported, in 2018, approximately 3.6 billion internet users are projected to access cloud computing system, up from 2.4 billion users in 2013.
Technology has changed everything the way we see the world, it has not only improved the living standard but it has also raised the working standard of the companies, (especially IT domain industries).
What is a Cloud Computing System?
Cloud computing means storing, accessing data, and programs (IT resources) over the internet with pay-as-you-go pricing. Storing data on computer hard drives has become the older way to store your data. Computing services like- including databases, networking, software, storage, and intelligence- over the internet to offer a rapid pace in innovation and flexible resources.
Instead of buying or owning and maintaining data servers, you typically pay only for the cloud services you use which assure low-cost operation, efficiently run your IT operations and scale as your business needs change.
Who is Using Cloud Computing?
There is no limitation for any industry, every type or size is using the cloud for various purposes such as email, software development, data backup, and customer-facing web applications. For example, the healthcare fraternity is using the cloud to develop personalized treatments for patients. And video game makers are using the cloud to deliver online multiple games to millions of users around the world in one place.
What Cloud Services are Available?
The service covers a wide range of options, from the basics of storage and achieves the processing power through NLP (natural language processing) and AI (Artificial Intelligence). It is a global service that does not require you to be physically close to the system hardware that you’re using, and can now be executed via the cloud.
What are the Benefits of Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is a noticeable acceleration from the traditional way of how businesses think about IT resources. Here are a few reasons why organizations are adopting cloud computing services.
1- Speed & Accuracy
The cloud services give access to a wider range of technologies so that you can innovate at speed and can accurately redesign anything that you can imagine. You can quickly spin the resources as per need- from infrastructure facilities, such as storage, databases, IoT, machine learning, and much more.
In a matter of minutes, the cloud gives a business a lot of flexibility and takes the pressure off capacity planning. The process gives you the freedom to test and develop new ideas to distinguish customer experiences and transform your business.
2- Cost Savings
Cloud computing system enables you to trade and eliminate capital expenses (data centers) and pay for IT as per you consume it. The rack of servers (variable expenses) is much lower than what you would pay for managing the infrastructure. It adds up fast.
3- Deploy at Global Scale
With the cloud, you can accelerate your work from any corner of the world. You can expand the regions and gain the ability to scale elastically. For example, more or less storage, computing power- when it is needed and deploy the application in multiple locations and improves user experience.
4- Security at First
Many cloud providers offer a wide set of policies and strategies to strengthen your security posture overall, assuring to protect your data, applications, and infrastructure from potential threats. The information and data are encrypted and cannot be accessed by hackers.
5- Boost in Performance
The cloud computing services run on a secure datacenter, which is continuously upgraded to the latest generation of fast and effective computing hardware. This results in reducing network latency for apps and a greater boost in productivity.
Types of Cloud Computing?
The usage of the cloud is not the same or right for everyone. Several different models or services have urbanized and offered the right solutions as per your needs.
First, you need to understand the type of cloud computing system architecture, that your cloud services will be executed. There are three ways to organize cloud services: Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hybrid Cloud.
- Public Cloud
The cloud is operated by third-party cloud service providers, which facilitates their computing resources like servers and storage over the internet. Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure is an example of a public cloud. This service can access and manage by using a web browser.
- Private Cloud
A private cloud refers to cloud computing used by a single owned business or organization. Few companies also pay to third-party service providers to host their private cloud. The cloud offers valuable services and organization infrastructure is maintained on a private network.
- Hybrid Cloud
It is a combination of both public and private clouds, it allows data and apps to be shared among them. By allowing data to move between private and public clouds, a hybrid cloud opens up the business with greater feasibility and flexibility. It also helps to optimize your existing infrastructure with security and amenability.
List of Cloud Services Include:
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
It is the basic category of cloud services. With IaaS, you rent IT infrastructure- storage networks, operating systems- from a cloud provider as per the usage of the cloud.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
It refers to cloud computing services that supply on-demand conditions for testing, delivering, and dealing with software applications. It is specially designed for developers to create mobile or web apps, without distressing the underlying infrastructure of the network, storage, and databases required for the development.
Software as a Service (SaaS)
It is a service, who is an expert for delivering software apps over the internet on a subscription basis. With SaaS, cloud providers manage software applications and handle organization maintenance like software upgrades and timely security updates. It is a process where the users connect to the application over the internet connection, typically with a web browser on the phone or PC.
How Cloud Computing Can Enhance Your Business Infrastructure?
Most of the companies also benefit from cloud services offered by the service providers. The cloud service impact on businesses is enormous- provided by the service providers.
Here is how business infrastructure can be enhanced are listed below –
- Improved Data Security
Lost laptops and storage devices can bring out a huge problem for organizations when all the data is stored at the local level. The problem can put the company into trouble and might cost high to retrieve all lost data. However, when all the data is stored in the cloud, it becomes easier to retrieve data- without worrying about a storage device.
- Access to Upgrade Technologies
The service allows small business running companies to get access to some technologies, which were previously restricted to only large companies. Now even a smaller business can match and give a tough competition to established companies and successfully disrupt the market.
- Free Security Updates
With cloud computing companies do not have to worry about security, the service providers take care of all of the necessary updates and update monthly security patches.
- Minimize Carbon Footprint
When a company adopts the cloud computing platform to scale-up or scale-down the capacity, only the server capacity is changed, using limited energy for the process. This reduces the chances of leaving large carbon footprints which would have ensued before the cloud platform was adopted.
