The monsoon is still two months away at least,but the cloud is hot news!!!

No,no,it is not about the rains…..

 Cloud computing is the use of computing resources (hardware and software) that are delivered as a service over a network (typically the Internet). software and computation. The name comes from the common use of a cloud-shaped symbol as an abstraction for the complex infrastructure it contains in system diagrams.  . Cloud computing entrusts remote services with a user's data.

 What could you do with the cloud? .

songs and videos.storage is all-too-easy and cheap.there is Box.net or a Dropbox that store files and help you switch easily between your laptop storage and “cloud storage”.pictures. .com help you to do that.Sites like Box. Suddenly. There was a time when we stored our data files on floppy disks and CD’s.net and Dropbox. Now.    STORE FILES : You can use memory resting in remote computers to store files including documents.because it is on the Web.

This is an example of both cloud computing(exchanging messages.depending on your location.where the data is stored.Yahoo Mail or Outlook. Your email is served from the nearest server. The front end-The Website that you visitconnects you to the cloud.com.which is the back-end. Whether you are using Gmail.     Email: Remember Hotmail? That and Gmail are nothing but Email applications on the cloud.tagging them) and cloud storage(saving messages) .the email is stored on the cloud.

When you watch a video on YouTube. . Sites such as Saavn.  Be Entertained: Youtube and such sites are just movie halls on the cloud.com and Hungama.com let you stream music for free in a similar manner.you have “cloud servers” at the back-end streaming your favourite video.

.Business software like SAP and accounting software like Tally are also available on the cloud.Zoho. Run an Office: The familiar Microsoft Office suite is now available on the cloud as Office365.com provides a host of office software.com) that offers comparable features.google.Google has its own Docs(http://docs.

can be made cheaper! . Do Advanced Computing: Even 3D prototype making.needing advanced graphic computing.

    Cloud computing providers offer their services according to several fundamental models: Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) Platform as a service (PaaS) Software as a service (SaaS) .

hardware.Google Apps . operating system. and network are provided. a pre-made application. In this model. along with any required software. For ex-Microsoft Office 365.

and the customer installs or develops its own software and applications. and network are provided.Windows Azure Cloud Services  . hardware. For ex-Google App Engine.In PaaS. Application developers can develop and run their software solutions on a cloud platform without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware and software layers. an operating system.

. software and applications. Cloud providers typically bill IaaS services on a utility computing basis For ex-Google Computing Engine .    The IaaS model provides just the hardware and network.Oracle Infrastructure as a Service. the customer installs or develops its own operating systems.

public cloud or hybrid cloud . community cloud. Cloud services are typically made available via a private cloud.

 . the cloud infrastructure is operated solely for a specific organization. the service is shared by several organizations and made available only to those groups.In a private cloud. and is managed by the organization or a third party  In a community cloud. combining public and community clouds). A hybrid cloud is a combination of different methods of resource pooling (for example. The infrastructure may be owned and operated by the organizations or by a cloud service provider.

 Cloud architecture. Elastic provision implies intelligence in the use of tight or loose coupling as applied to mechanisms such as these and others . the systems architecture of the software systems involved in the delivery of cloud computing. typically involves multiple cloud components communicating with each other over a loose coupling mechanism such as a messaging queue.


Basic facilities on paid sites cost around $10(Rs 500 a month). .  As long as you have an internet connection.you can hook up to a cloud service and get storage ultra-cheap.Some sites offer basic stuff for free.

   Good Bandwidth is critical Files moving in the cloud.if not secure.lose confidentiality Data may be vulnerable to intruders .

DropBox.com.You can sign up and pay online where it not free.com are cloud sites.net.Box.com.Office365.com.Outlook.Docs.Tally.log on to sites that offer cloud facilities.  Simple. com. .google.Zoho.com.

Twitter would have remained small and localised.social media networks like Facebook.limited to communities. ◦ Social media networks have become a great example of cloud computing and storage.◦ If we did not have cloud computing. .

Typically.the tougher it becomes to crack it..it is vulnerable to someone hacking it. Most of the data you store on the cloud is accessed by a username and password.     The flip side of the cloud computing is the safety! If your files are not physically in your control.which is known to others. .the username is your email id. But your password is the key to your sound sleep:the more complex it is.
