What is cloud computing?

A beginner’s guide


In simplest terms, cloud computing is the delivery of computing services—such as servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence—via the Internet ("the cloud") in order to provide faster innovation, more flexible resources, and economies of scale. You typically pay only for the cloud services that you use, which allows you to reduce operating costs, run your infrastructure more efficiently, and scale as your business needs change.


1. Types of cloud computing


Not all clouds are the same, and not every type of cloud computing is appropriate for every situation. A variety of models, types and services have evolved to help provide the best solution for your needs.


To begin, you must determine the types of cloud deployment, or cloud computing architecture, on which your cloud services will be implemented. Cloud services can be deployed in one of three ways: on a public cloud, a private cloud, or a hybrid cloud.

  • Public cloud

Third-party cloud service providers own and operate public clouds, which deliver computing resources such as servers and storage over the Internet. A public cloud is exemplified by Microsoft Azure. The cloud provider owns and manages all hardware, software, and other supporting infrastructure in a public cloud. A web browser is used to access these services and manage your account.

  • Private cloud

A private cloud is a set of cloud computing resources that are only used by one business or firm. A private cloud can be physically located on-site at the company's data center. Some businesses also hire third-party service providers to host their private clouds. A private cloud is one that keeps its services and infrastructure on a private network.

  • Hybrid cloud

A private cloud is a set of cloud computing resources that are only used by one business or firm. A private cloud can be physically located on-site at the company's data center. Some businesses also hire third-party service providers to host their private clouds. A private cloud is one that keeps its services and infrastructure on a private network.


2. Types of cloud services: IaaS, PaaS, serverless, and SaaS


Most cloud computing administrations drop into four broad categories: framework as a benefit (IaaS), staged as a benefit (PaaS), serverless, and computer program as a benefit (SaaS). These are now and then called the cloud computing "stack" since they construct on the beat of one another. Knowing what they are and how they’re distinctive makes it simpler to achieve your trade goals.


  • Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)

The most basic category of cloud computing services. With IaaS, you rent IT infrastructure—servers and virtual machines (VMs), storage, networks, operating systems—from a cloud provider on a pay-as-you-go basis.

  • Platform as a service (PaaS)

Cloud computing services provide an on-demand environment for developing, testing, delivering, and managing software applications. PaaS is designed to make it easier for developers to create web or mobile apps without worrying about setting up or managing the underlying infrastructure of servers, storage, network, and databases.

  • Serverless computing

Covering with PaaS, serverless computing centers on building app usefulness without investing time persistently overseeing the servers and framework required to do so. The cloud supplier handles the setup, capacity arranging, and server administration for you. Serverless models are exceedingly adaptable and event-driven, as it was utilizing assets when a particular work or trigger occurs.

  • Software as a service (SaaS)

Software as a service (SaaS) is a method for delivering software applications over the Internet. Cloud providers host and manage the software application and underlying infrastructure. Users connect to the application over the internet, usually with a web browser on their phone, tablet, or PC.


Conclusion


Cloud Computing is the fastest-growing part of network-based computing. It provides tremendous benefits to customers of all sizes: simple users, developers, enterprises, and all types of organizations. Public and private clouds can be used in combinations.
