Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is an internet based computing relies on sharing computing resources. The “Cloud” in cloud computing can be defined as the set of hardware, networks, storage, services, and interfaces that combine to deliver aspects of computing as a service. Cloud services include the delivery of software, infrastructure, and storage over the internet based on-demand. Cloud Computing enables the availability of infinite infrastructure and resource capacity.

The most significant advantage of cloud computing to an organization is :

  • It avoids capital expenditure on hardware, software, and services
  • Shared infrastructure and costs
  • Low management overhead and immediate access to a broad range of applications
  • Pay for use and as needed, elastic
  • Scale up and down in capacity and functionalities
  • Eliminate upfront infrastructure costs
  • Quickly and easily deploy the applications to a highly scalable cloud environment
  • Allows you to start small and scale as traffic grows
  • Services are often covered by service level agreements (SLAs)
  • Users can terminate the contract at any time (thereby avoiding return on investment risk and uncertainty)

SaaS, PaaS and IaaS are considered the three pillars of the cloud computing service model. Cloud Concept incorporates combinations of the following :

 
Infrastructure as a Services (IaaS) Platform as a Service(PaaS) Software as a Service(SaaS)
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is at the foundational level and includes capabilities such as operating systems, networks, virtual machines, and storage.
    Renting of computer hardware (servers, networking technology, storage, and data center space) instead of buying and installing it in your own data center.
    Operating systems and virtualization technology to manage these resources. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is the delivery of equipment -- servers, virtual machines (VMs), networking components -- over a network.
  • Integrated cloud-based computing environment that supports the development, running, and management of applications.
    A primary value of a PaaS environment is that developers don’t have to be concerned with some of the lower-level details of the environment.
    It includes services for developing and deploying applications.
    Developer can easily create custom applications using programming tools and deploy them onto the cloud infrastructure.
    Deploy Customer Created applications.
  • Software distribution model in which applications are hosted by a service provider and made available to customers over a network, typically the Internet.
    The service provider gives customers network-based access to a single copy of an application created specifically for SaaS distribution.

    Benefits of the SaaS model include:
    Software Compatibility: All users will have the same version of software
    Automatic updates and patch management
    Easier collaboration and administration
    software features can be easily enabled or disabled by customer
    Global accessibility
