Cloud Computing:

  • Cloud computing is an emerging trend in the field of information technology, where computer-based services are delivered over the Internet or the cloud, and it is accessible to the user from anywhere using any device.
  • The services comprise software, hardware (servers), databases, storage, etc.
  • These resources are provided by companies called cloud service providers and usually charge on a pay per use basis, like the way we pay for electricity usage.
  • Cloud computing is an infrastructure and software model that enables ubiquitous access to shared pools of storage, networks, servers, and applications.
  • It allows for data processing to be done on a privately-owned cloud or a third-party server. This creates maximum speed and reliability. But the greatest benefit is its ease of installation, low maintenance, and scalability. This way it grows with your needs.
  • We already use cloud services while storing our pictures and files as backups on the Internet or host a website on the Internet.
  • Through cloud computing, a user can run a bigger application or process a large amount of data without having the required storage or processing power on their personal computer as long as they are connected to the Internet.
  • Besides other numerous features, cloud computing offers cost-effective, on-demand resources. A user can avail of need-based resources from the cloud at a very reasonable cost.
