What is cloud computing and how does it work? So that’s the topic of this blog. You may have heard people talk about the cloud, such as cloud computing or cloud storage, but you probably didn’t know what it meant. Cloud computing refers to data and applications being stored and run on the cloud rather than on your local computer or any other equipment that you own. This data and applications are accessed through the internet, so the workload is distributed.
These buildings are very large and, well, they have to be because, when you look inside, it’s a giant data center that contains servers as far as the eye can see. These servers perform numerous tasks, such as running applications, storing data, data processing, web hosting, and so on, and they are also a source of information for clients. In other words, a service is simply something that you pay someone to do for you rather than doing it yourself, so if a person or a company wanted to hire another company to do part or all of their computing workload, they would outsource it to a third party.
In other words, they would use cloud computing. In the old days, before cloud computing, if you wanted to use email, you would have your own physical email server at your home or office. The upshot is that if something goes wrong with the server, such as a hardware failure, a software problem, or if the operating system crashes, you will be responsible for fixing the problem, as well as any maintenance required to keep the server up and running.
However, you can avoid all of the hassle and upkeep by having another company host all of your email on their cloud servers for you, such as Gmail, Hotmail, and a Gmail account. Another question is why an individual or a company would use cloud computing. As I previously stated, one major reason is cost. With cloud computing, a person or company eliminates a lot of the expense of buying their own hardware and software, as well as the building maintenance and electricity it takes to run their own data center, so it would be more cost-efficient to use the cloud instead.
Another reason is reliability. So whether you need to rent a few computers or a lot, it doesn’t matter. So if you only want to rent a small number of computers to start out, you can do that. But as your business expands, you have the option of instantly renting more computers to suit your needs. And if you don’t need to rent as many computers, you can instantly scale back to renting only a few.
Who are the cloud providers today? The major cloud providers today are Amazon Web Services (aws), and Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Alibaba, IBM, and others also use Amazon Web Services, with Amazon Web Services being the biggest of them all, taking about a third of the cloud market share. In fact, one of AWS’s biggest customers is Netflix. So, instead of building its own data center and spending hundreds of millions of dollars on hosting its own data, Netflix chose to outsource it to a cloud provider, which is Amazon.
Netflix benefits greatly from using the cloud because they do not have to worry about downtime, security, data backup, or the high cost of building and maintaining their own data center. They can simply pay Amazon to do it for them. This gives Netflix a lot of relief, allowing them to focus on other things related to their business.
There are three different types of cloud computing available. So, the first is infrastructure as a service, which includes platforms as a service or pipeline, and software as a service or sas, and these three differ in their ability to control and flexibility, so it’s up to the user to decide what suits their needs. This type is basically where you’re going to let the cloud provider manage a portion of your business, which is going to be the hardware portion. The cloud provider will manage the servers, storage virtualization, and the networking portion.
You, on the other hand, will still have control over the software portion, such as the applications’ data, operating system middleware, and runtime Some examples of infrastructure as a service that the average person would use would be online data backup services such as drive and carbonite that provide cloud storage, and the next one is called platform as a service, which is like it allows the cloud provider to manage a portion of your business, but the cloud provider has more control in a way.
The cloud provider not only manages the hardware, such as server storage and networking, but it also manages the operating system middleware and runtime. On the other hand, you, on the other hand, are only responsible for the applications and the data. And finally, there’s software as a service, or saas. This is probably the most common cloud service by far. In this type, all the applications are hosted by the cloud provider.
There is no software to install on your computer and no hardware to manage. You simply access and run the application from your computer when you connect to the cloud service through the internet. The cloud provider manages all the hardware, software, networking, operating system, and storage. So the cloud provider manages all the A good example of SAS is something that I use all the time, which is Google Docs.
Google Docs is a free online office suite that can be accessed using a web browser. There is no additional software that needs to be installed on your computer to use Google Docs. Everything is accessible and manageable from your web browser. That ends the cloud computing blog. Please subscribe, and thanks for reading.
