Cloud Solutions

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services such as servers, storage, networking, software, databases and much more, over the internet. Typically, these services can be availed on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ basis.

As contrasted with organizations having to create and own their own data center and other computing infrastructure, the cloud model allows for hiring access to compute, storage, database and other components from a cloud service provider.

  • These are some of the benefits that can be derived from using cloud services

    Cost: Cloud eliminates the capital expenditure associated with procuring the infrastructure, setting up and running on-premise data centers. Since cloud services are available on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ model, the expenditure is more manageable since a huge up-front investment is not required and only operating expenses are incurred.
     

    Flexibility: The cloud offers the flexibility desired by businesses whose computing needs keep changing. It is easy to scale up and scale down the capacity and this agility gives organizations an edge in terms of balancing availability, performance and expense
     

    Ubiquitous Access: Cloud services can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection
     

    Reliability: Cloud services are quite reliable and offer high ‘uptimes’ thereby offering a dependable platform for organizations to deploy their business critical applications
     

    Manageability: Cloud Services are generally equipped with simplified and enhanced management and maintenance capabilities, with basic web based management interfaces
     

    Security: The security of data may be improved owing to the centralization of the data and increased security focused resources deployed by cloud service providers
     

    Automated Updates: Cloud service providers perform the routine and ongoing maintenance and operating system software update tasks thereby relieving user organizations of this concern

  • Cloud Service Models

    Cloud services are commonly available in three models - IaaS, PaaS & SaaS

    IaaS: Infrastructure as a Service – This model offers computing resources such as servers, storage & networking on the cloud and organizations install and manage their operating systems and own enterprise applications
     

    PaaS: Platform as a Service – This is a cloud computing model which provides organizations with both the computing resources and the platform components such as the operating systems, system software. Organizations have to install, monitor and manage their applications on the cloud
     

    SaaS: Software as a Service: This model provides software applications via a subscription model and users are not required to install, manage or upgrade software on their local devices. Rather the applications reside on and are served from the cloud. Basically, this model provides the computing infrastructure, the platform and the applications on the cloud.
