Cloud Computing

What is Cloud Computing?  It is a general term for the delivery of hosted services over the Internet.  Cloud computing enables companies to consume compute resources as a utility, rather than having to build and maintain computing infrastructures in-house.  Cloud computing services can be private, public or hybrid.  Private cloud services are delivered from within a business.  Public cloud a third-party provides the services over the internet.  Customers pay for storage, bandwidth and CPU cycles they use.  Hybrid cloud is a combination of private and public cloud services.

Three main benefits of cloud computing include:

  1. Self-service provisioning: End users can spin up computing resources for almost any type of workload on-demand.
  2. Elasticity: Companies can scale up as computing needs increase and then scale down again as demands decrease.
  3. Pay per use: Computing resources are measured at a granular level, allowing users to pay only for the resources and workloads they use.

Cloud computing is divided in to three broad service categories:

  1. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
  2. Platform as a service (PaaS)
  3. Software as service (SaaS)
