Cloud Computing Services
Cloud Computing Services
Cloud computing is the on-demand, pay-as-you-go provision of IT services over the Internet. Instead of purchasing, operating, and maintaining physical data centers and servers, you may rent computing power, storage, and databases from a cloud provider like Amazon Web Services on an as-needed basis (AWS).
Types of Cloud Services:
No matter the type of service, cloud computing services provide users with a range of functions, including:
- Storage, backup, and data retrieval
- Creating and testing apps
- Analyzing data
- Audio and video streaming
- Delivering software on demand

Top most popular FAQs about Cloud Computing Services
What is cloud computing?
Gartner defines cloud computing as “A style of computing in which massively scalable it-related capabilities are provided ‘as a service using Internet technologies to multiple external customers.” beyond the Gartner definition, clouds are marked by self-service interfaces that let customers acquire resources at any time and get rid of them the instant they are no longer needed.
The cloud is not really a technology by itself. Rather, it is an approach to building its services that harness the rapidly increasing horsepower of servers as well as virtualization technologies that combine many servers into large computing pools and divide single servers into multiple virtual machines that can be spun up and powered down at will.
What is a public cloud?
Naturally, a public cloud is a service that anyone can tap into with a network connection and a credit card. “Public clouds are shared infrastructures with pay-as-you-go economics,” explains Forrester analyst James Staten in an April report. “Public clouds are easily accessible, multitenant virtualized infrastructures that are managed via a self-service portal.”
What is a private cloud?
A private cloud attempts to mimic the delivery models of public cloud vendors but does so entirely within the firewall for the benefit of an enterprise’s users. A private cloud would be highly virtualized, stringing together mass quantities of its infrastructure into one or a few easily managed logical resource pools.
Like public clouds, delivery of private cloud services would typically be done through a web interface with self-service and chargeback attributes. “Private clouds give you many of the benefits of cloud computing, but it’s privately owned and managed, the access may be limited to your own enterprise or a section of your value chain,” Gloeckner says. “It does drive efficiency, it does force standardization and best practices.”
The largest enterprises are interested in private clouds because public clouds are not yet scalable and reliable enough to justify transferring all of their resources to cloud vendors, carr says.
“A lot of this is a scale game,” carr says. “If you’re general electric, you’ve got an enormous amount of it to scale within your own company. And at this stage, the smart thing for you to do is probably to rebuild your own internal it around a cloud architecture because the public cloud isn’t of a scale at this point and of reliability and everything where he could say ‘we’re closing down all our data centers and moving to the cloud.”
Is cloud computing the same as software-as-a-service?
You might say software-as-a-service kicked off the whole push toward cloud computing by demonstrating that IT services could be easily made available over the Web. While SaaS vendors originally did not use the word cloud to describe their offerings, analysts now consider SaaS to be one of several subsets of the cloud computing market.
What types of services are available via the cloud computing model?
Public cloud services are breaking down into three broad categories: software-as-a-service, infrastructure-as-a-service, and platform-as-a-service. SaaS is well known and consists of software applications delivered over the Web. Infrastructure-as-a-service refers to remotely accessible server and storage capacity, while platform-as-a-service is a compute-and-software platform that lets developers build and deploy Web applications on a hosted infrastructure.
What types of applications can run in the cloud?
Technically, you can put any application in the cloud. But that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. For example, there’s little reason to run a desktop disk defragmentation or systems analysis tool in the cloud, because you want the application sitting on the desktop, dedicated to the system with little to no latency, says Pund-IT analyst Charles King.
More importantly, regulatory and compliance concerns prevent enterprises from putting certain applications in the cloud, particularly those involving sensitive customer data.
IDC surveys show the top uses of the cloud as being IT management, collaboration, personal and business applications, application development and deployment, and server and storage capacity.
Can applications move from one cloud to another?
Yes, but that doesn’t mean it will be easy. Services have popped up to move applications from one cloud platform to another (such as from Amazon to GoGrid) and from internal data centers to the cloud. But going forward, cloud vendors will have to adopt standards-based technologies in order to ensure true interoperability, according to several industry groups. The recently released “Open Cloud Manifesto” supports interoperability of data and applications, while the Open Cloud Consortium is promoting open frameworks that will let clouds operated by different entities work seamlessly together. The goal is to move applications from one cloud to another without having to rewrite them.
How can I make sure my data is safe?
Data safety in the cloud is not a trivial concern. Online storage vendors such as The Linkup and Carbonite have lost data and were unable to recover it for customers. Secondly, there is the danger that sensitive data could fall into the wrong hands. Before signing up with any cloud vendor, customers should demand information about data security practices, scrutinize SLAs, and make sure they have the ability to encrypt data both in transit and at rest.

What is the 4 types of clouds in cloud computing?
There are 4 main types of cloud computing: private clouds, public clouds, hybrid clouds, and multi-clouds.
