How it’s possible to store unlimited data in the Cloud? Where is this exactly?
No wonder if you also think of these questions when you hear the term Cloud Computing.
Cloud Computing is everywhere. Today we will put some more light on this term and discuss the following topics in this blog so that you don’t have a question mark in front of yourself when somebody talks about cloud computing.
Let’s begin by addressing the very first question, i.e.
When we say Cloud, it means we can do everything over the internet. So, Cloud Computing is all about storing data, programs, etc. and access them over the internet rather than the hard drive of your computer.
In the local storage and computing you need to be physically present in front of your computer, but for cloud computing, you can store unlimited data from anywhere. Same is the case for accessing data from the computer. Besides the ease of storing data in the cloud, you can also access your data over the internet without any effort. You just need to have internet access on your smart device. It is also not necessary that you access the stored data from any particular device. You can access all of them from any of your smart devices like mobile phone, tablet, laptop, or any other device. The end result is always same.
In fact, Google's most of the services like Gmail, Google Maps, Google Calenda, etc. can be known as cloud computing.
Now, this is something that is really important for each one of us to know. The Cloud Computing varies for individual users and business users. What we intend to say here is, when a business group wants to use cloud computing, they need to implement any one of these options mentioned below;
1). Saas (Software-as-a-Service) Some businesses choose SaaS where they need to subscribe to a particular application for accessing the storage facility over the internet. You can consider Salesforce.com as an example of SaaS. 2). PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) As the term says, when you are willing to use PaaS for storing your data, businesses have the freedom to create a customized application that can be used for the whole organization. You just need to create an application and give access to your employees.
3). IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) This is what is commonly used by giants like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, etc. where storage space can be rented out by the cloud owner. You can see an IaaS example as the Netflix providing you its services because of being a consumer of Amazon’s Cloud service. One of the best examples of Cloud Computing is “Google Drive”.
Yes, that’s right. Each one of us must have heard and even using Google Drive. This can be considered as one of the best offerings of cloud computing services. It allows you to store unlimited images, documents, sheets, slides, videos, programs, etc. over the internet.
