Cloud computing is a type of computing that relies on sharing computing resources rather than personal devices or on-premises application servers. It is these services for which you will only be billed based on the number of computing resources we use. The provision of computing resources on demand is often referred to as the cloud.
Software as a Service (SAAS): This is a software distribution model in which applications are hosted by service providers and delivered to customers over the Internet. This relates to application service providers and the on-demand computer software delivery model.
Seamless Service: Each infrastructure component is delivered as a service. e.g. hardware as a service, servers as a service, computers as a service. This gives a lot of flexibility to anyone who is only looking for a specific service.
Dropbox: A cloud computing application that can be used to store files and folders on the Internet.
Basecamp: This is a special tool designed for project management. In it you can share files, time tracking, and messaging are some of the features enabled in this app.
Cloud computing characteristics:
Scalable services: The cloud system automatically manages and optimizes the required resources based on user requirements and the type of service required. All of these types of services are scalable and their use transparent to both providers and customers.
Different cloud computing models:
Public clouds: They are owned and operated by organizations that use them to provide organizations or other entities with instant access to available computing resources.
Private Cloud: A private cloud is owned and operated by a company that controls how virtualized resources and automated services are customized and used by different business units and component groups.
