Cloud computing enables companies to consume a compute resource, such as a virtual machine, storage or an application, as a utility just like electricity rather than having to build and maintain computing infrastructures in house. Cloud computing is an information technology paradigm that enables ubiquitous access to shared pools of configurable system resources and higher level services that can be rapidly provisioned with minimal management effort, often over the Internet.
Cloud computing is the on demand delivery of compute power, database storage, applications, and other IT resources through a cloud services platform via the internet with pay as you go pricing.
In cloud computing, the capital investment in building and maintaining data centers is replaced by consuming IT resources as an elastic, utility like service from a cloud provider.
Three Types Cloud Computing:
Software as a Service:
Using the cloud, software such as an internet browser or application is able to become a usable tool.
Infrastructure as a Service:
A third party hosts elements of infrastructure, such as hardware, software, servers, and storage, also providing backup, security, and maintenance.
Platform as a Service:
The branch of cloud computing that allows users to develop, run, and manage applications, without having to get caught up in code, storage, and infrastructure and so on.
Cloud Computing Work:
A Cloud services platform such as Amazon Web Services owns and maintains the network-connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application.
Cloud computing can also guarantee a more secure environment, thanks to increased resources for security and centralization of data.
Next for cloud computing:
In contrast, the next wave of cloud computing is about helping customers forget about the existence of that infrastructure entirely, thereby freeing them to unlock full digital business transformation.
