Cloud Computing

“Cloud computing is an emerging computing technology that uses the internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications”.

Types of Cloud:
Deploying cloud computing can differ depending on requirements, and the following four deployment models have been identified, each with specific characteristics that support the needs of the services and users of the clouds in particular ways • Private Cloud — The cloud infrastructure has been deployed, and is maintained and operated for a specific organization. The operation may be in-house or with a third party on the premises. • Community Cloud — The cloud infrastructure is shared among a number of organizations with similar interests and requirements. This may help limit the capital expenditure costs for its establishment as the costs are shared among the organizations. The operation may be in-house or with a third party on the premises. • Public Cloud — The cloud infrastructure is available to the public on a commercial basis by a cloud service provider. This enables a consumer to develop and deploy a service in the cloud with very little financial outlay compared to the capital expenditure requirements normally associated with other deployment options. • Hybrid Cloud — The cloud infrastructure consists of a number of clouds of any type, but the clouds have the ability through their interfaces to allow data and/or applications to be moved from one cloud to another. This can be a combination of private and public clouds that support the requirement to retain some data in an organization, and also the need to offer services in the cloud.

Service Models:
SaaS (Software As A Service) PaaS (Platform as a Service)

typically a platform virtualization environment. Outlook Mobile Access (OMA) and Outlook Web Access (OWA). calendar. clients instead buy those resources as a fully outsourced service. The service is typically billed on a utility computing basis and amount of resources consumed (and therefore the cost) will typically reflect the level of activity. software. Hosted Email – This allows users to access their email. and a VOIP-enabled telephone works exactly like a 'normal' one. but it has distinct cost advantages. It facilitates deployment of applications without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware and software layers. It is an evolution of virtual private server offerings. including Outlook®. as a service. eliminating the need to install and run the application on the customer's own computers and simplifying maintenance and support. contacts and shared files by a variety of means. often consuming cloud infrastructure and sustaining cloud applications. Benefits: . data center space or network equipment.  IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service): Cloud infrastructure services or "Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)" delivers computer infrastructure. using a specialized device called a thin client. VOIP is no different to traditional telephony.  PaaS (Platform as a Service): Cloud platform services or "Platform as a Service (PaaS)" deliver a computing platform and/or solution stack as a service. Service Deployment: Hosted Desktops – Users can simply access their hosted desktops via an internet connection from anywhere in the world. Rather than purchasing servers. In terms of basic usage and functionality. Hosted Telephony (VOIP) VOIP (Voice Over IP) is a means of carrying phone calls and services across digital internet networks.IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)  SaaS (Software As A Service): Cloud application services or "Software as a Service (SaaS)" deliver ‘software’ as a service over the Internet.

and Microsoft currently makes its office applications available in a cloud. This is a lower barrier to entry and also requires fewer in-house IT resources to provide system support. and access is through APIs that do not require application installations onto PCs. • Scalability/Flexibility — Companies can start with a small deployment and grow to a large deployment fairly rapidly. . • Microsoft — Has Microsoft® Sharepoint® online service that allows for content and business intelligence tools to be moved into the cloud. • Mobile Accessible — Mobile workers have increased productivity due to systems accessible in an infrastructure available from anywhere. web analytics. thus further reducing maintenance requirements. Many companies are delivering services from the cloud. enabling them to satisfy consumer demands. • Maintenance — Cloud service providers do the system maintenance. maps. Some notable examples as of 2011 include the following: • Google — Has a private cloud that it uses for delivering many different services to its users.The following are some of the possible benefits for those who offer cloud computing-based services and applications: • Cost Savings — Companies can reduce their capital expenditures and use operational expenditures for increasing their computing capabilities. and then scale back if necessary. text translations. the flexibility of cloud computing allows companies to use extra resources at peak times. Also. and much more. including email access. • Reliability — Services using multiple redundant sites can support business continuity and disaster recovery. document applications.
