INTRODUCTION

Cloud computing is a technology that uses the internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications. Cloud computing allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installation and access their personal files at any computer with internet access. This technology allows for much more efficient computing by centralizing storage, memory, processing and bandwidth. A simple example of cloud computing is Yahoo email, Gmail, or Hotmail etc. You dont need a software or a server to use them. All a consumer would need is just an internet connection and you can start sending emails. The server and email management software is all on the cloud ( internet) and is totally managed by the cloud service provider Yahoo , Google etc. The consumer gets to use the software alone and enjoy the benefits. The analogy is , 'If you need milk , would you buy a cow ?' All the users or consumers need is to get the benefits of using the software or hardware of the computer like sending emails etc. Just to get this benefit (milk) why should a consumer buy a (cow) software hardware ? Cloud computing is broken down into three segments: "application" "storage" and "connectivity." Each segment serves a different purpose and offers different products for businesses and individuals around the world. In June 2011, a study conducted by VersionOne found that 91% of senior IT professionals actually don't know what cloud computing is and two-thirds of senior finance professionals are clear by the concept,[1] highlighting the young nature of the technology. In Sept 2011, an Aberdeen Group study found that disciplined companies achieved on average an 68% increase in their IT expense because cloud computing and only a 10% reduction in data center power costs Cloud Computing or cloud is nothing but a concept that will stay and soon dominate the world and will change the way we use computers and the Internet. This concept basically is to make everything we use accessible from anywhere you have an internet connection. With the cloud you do not have to worry about the hardware configuration of your machine, or with the installation of software, file storage etc… Everything will be online! If we need to create a text document will no longer have to have an office suite installed on our computer, simply access via the Internet tool that will work in a 100% online, and time to store this file also will not have to save it in our computer, it will be saved to a web server where we can access files 24×7 from anywhere in the world via the Internet connectivity!

Cloud computing, made professional and personal lives easier, it is one of the best and effective way to make work be done efficiently and effectively on time each time. Recent developments of this technology made us think, what else can we do in the future, what other means of computing can be developed? There are several cloud computing companies out there, claiming they have the best and most advanced technology and the best business model that can effectively address all the cloud computing needs of their consumers and clients. But, who are these companies and what do they do? Are they the right fit for your business or just a mediocre provider? Let us list the top cloud computing companies worldwide and what they do. This list is not in any particular order, they are just the known best cloud computing companies today as observed by IT experts.

A fact that I think are some very curious modern notebooks most famous brands already have a button that when clicked opens a window independent of the operating system which lets you access the Internet without even turning on the operating system installed on the notebook, I believe that this fact has reflects what the future holds! The operating system of a computer, the physical configuration of the machine or the programs you have installed will no longer be important, because all you need is online and the only thing thatwill matter will have a simple Internet connection.
Cloud. The cloud or final phase provides a real--‐time consumption model that meets the

descriptions anddefinitions detailed previously. At this phase, business owners only pay for what they consume and can quickly provision and decommission resources as needed. Control shifts into the hands of the application owner, allowing for management of an extremely fluid environment that instantaneously responds to change across distributed resources regardless of whether they are owned or leased from/hosted by a third party. This entire process is completely transparent to the application and its administrators. This evolutionary process is just beginning. ESG believes that most organizations remain in the early stages of the cycle, caught between the consolidation and enterprise phases. What’s holding them back? Many things. Some organizations don’t have the IT skills needed to proceed to the enterprise phase and beyond. Many virtualization and cloud technologies are relatively new and immature. Finally, many firms are finding that virtualization, consolidation, web--‐based applications, and cloud services are a mismatch for their existing network infrastructure. Yes, cloud computing is the eventual destination, but a long journey lies ahead.

Cloud computing 2012
Cloud computing is a reality! For those who think that the cloud or cloud computing is something of a very distant future, pay attention to the tools that come out every day and often have used without realizing that it is a magic of cloud computing. Cloud Computing is a broad and ill-defined term, but in essence it amounts to virtualised third-party hosting. That is, rather than renting part or all of an actual physical server from a hosting company, you rent a certain amount of server resources. Your server runs inside a virtual container which can be moved from one physical server to another without interruption of service. Such a container is also capable of spanning multiple physical machines, giving it potentially limitless resources. A web server typically has three tiers to it: The physical infrastructure, the operating system platform, and the web application software being run. In brief, the options are these: • If you want a fully operational server with total control over the operating system and configuration, you want Infrastructure as a Service. • If you don’t want any configuration hassles at all, if you just want to upload your files and leave your website to run, you want Software as a Service. • For something in between, with a pre-configured operating system but a reasonable amount of control over the rest of the configuration, Platform as a Service is for you. It is important to understand that the requirement that drove the development of Cloud Computing was scalability. With dedicated or shared

servers, an increase in traffic can leave the site badly underpowered. This is a major obstacle to the development of new mass-market web applications, since upgrading to better hardware is a difficult and time-consuming process, but start-ups generally can’t afford powerful server farms from the start . For companies looking to host internal or specialist web applications, scalability is not as much of a priority; cost is a much bigger factor, and one that is not necessarily emphasised by cloud providers. Nevertheless, cloud options do exist that have very low baseline costs, which could mean savings for low-volume sites. In addition, because cloud systems are virtualised there are a number of natural advantages: backups are much easier to create and the risk associated with hardware failure is minimised. As a small business owner, one of your top goals is to reduce your expenses to the bare minimum,while providing the level of service of your larger competitors. To do this, you need to use the best tools available, and cloud computing services should be added to your toolbox .

Disadvantages One potential problem is that Virtual Private Servers are typically incapable of passing a PCI Security Audit. enterprise consumers pay for virtual machines (VMs). or to subdivide physical machines into multiple logical servers. In this way. enterprises have no control over the underlying cloud technology. storage capacity.Cloud computing 2012 This is really the most basic cloud service model. IaaS can be utilized as a temporary resource or used for years at a time. hosting services. storage arrays. this is possible through Virtual Private Servers. Providers like Amazon reserve the right to shut off the server without prior notice if it is behaving in a way that leads them to believe it has been compromised by hackers.

For all the convenience of hosted web applications. including WebFusion. Developers have been using it for years to set up test platforms for new applications. Using a virtual machine to host a web application was uncommon. IaaS prices are based upon two factors: IaaS resource consumption and the duration of use. Typically. The primary difference is that cloud resources are virtual rather than physical and can be consumed on an as--‐needed basis. If you have a dedicated server in a hosting centre somewhere. or if they think we are using it for unethical activities like spamming. In other words. because the virtual server would by definition have to be less powerful than the physical server on which it was running. As described above. storage service providers (SSPs).

with Microsoft and Google going head-to-head. The real difference is that instead of having space on a Windows-based server. which allows you to write App Engine-compatible software. All PaaS platforms share the disadvantage that there is a limit to the options available in terms of third-party applications. Disadvantages Vendor lock-in is always a concern when it comes to PaaS.e. Both Microsoft Azure and the Google Application Engine require developers to port their software to the new platform. There is also an argument to be made that since the two biggest players in the industry – Microsoft and Google – are investing so heavily in PaaS cloud computing. and is likely to be the most fiercely competitive market.e. and you build your site using tools specific to that platform.priyanka02@gmail. etc. Advantages Any PaaS solution comes with the advantage of minimising the developer’s maintenance time while still providing a considerable amount of customisation and configuration. For the most part. Platform as a Service is a compromise between SaaS and IaaS. there is a certain inevitability to their emergence as a standard. which means very few developers have released compatible versions of their software at this stage.) or an open source--‐based stack (i.

This is mainly caused by the relative novelty of the platforms. Google go to great lengths to make their systems easy to use. One would have to write applications to be tailored to the chosen platform. you use a specifically-written cloud platform.

Microsoft intends in the near future to offer SharePoint via Azure. The platform enforces hard limits on the amount of processing your application can do – any request that takes longer than 30 seconds to complete or that sends more than 10MB of data is immediately terminated. SaaS examples include Gmail from Google.com PAGE 14 . since Microsoft have apparently devoted a lot of time to ensuring that Azure deployment is possible ―at the click of a button‖ directly from Visual Studio. although this access would be via a web interface rather than Remote Desktop.

Using Azure would simplify the deployment process for ASP. Azure also supports non-Microsoft development languages including PHP and Python. GAE is unfortunately very clearly intended for quite small applications and simple websites. the GAE may be for you. The Azure platform appears to be a modified form of Windows Server 2008.Enterprise consumers outsource the entire underlying technology infrastructure to a SaaS provider and thus have no responsibility or management oversight for SaaS--‐based IT components. including Internet Information Services (IIS).

This is slightly mitigated by virtualisation. The second type is the simplest form of cloud computing: effectively virtualised shared-server space into which you put anything you want.Cloud computing 2012 There is no hierarchy in these service offerings. and poorly written software might have adverse effects on the stability of the operating system.com PAGE 15 . you need multiple SaaS virtual sites. the relative severity of the disadvantages will of course depend on your specific circumstances.priyanka02@gmail. the website exists in a virtual container. but it could equally be a public-facing website. rather. but any changes to the platform or environment have to be handled by the hosting company. The host gives you access to a virtual directory to which you can upload a single website’s files. CIOs can choose any or all cloud service offerings that fit their needs. and is inevitably misused. This type. Advantages lal. The first is virtualisation of internal systems – a large company’s CRM or ERP is moved from intranet servers into the cloud and hosted on shared servers. each other application provides a potential point of entry for hackers.You would however be reliant upon them to monitor their systems closely and expedite the move. There are a number of companies that specialise in single-application hosting of this type. This applies both to custom-written systems and commercial applications like Microsoft SharePoint. and so on. This makes it much easier to transfer the site to more powerful hardware as the need arises. as well as the firewall controlling network security. you would have to configure your application to handle it internally. So how is SaaS better than an ordinary shared server? With SaaS. Much of the security burden falls on the hosting company. ―Software as a Service‖ has of late become something of a marketing buzzword. Disadvantages Most of the disadvantages of SaaS are the same as those that apply to ordinary shared hosting. since you would have no direct access to the system logs. which are charged separately but can all be managed though a single web console. works almost exactly the same way as regular shared server hosting. Audit trails and service monitoring are more difficult to achieve in a virtualised environment. no third-party software or background services. This may be an internal business application. the hosting company could easily transfer the site to a different server. For multiple web applications. You would have to trust them to properly secure the server(s) on which the virtualised application runs. You would have no control over what other applications are sharing the same server. but all of the other limitations of shared servers still apply: very limited configurability. If you need log access. in the event of server instability. and a useful directory to these is available here. but there seem to be two types of offering that fall into this category. which can be moved from physical server to physical server without interruption of service.

1c per compute cycle) is attractively low.

Example: WebFusion lal.com PAGE 16 . Virtualised applications can be moved onto different hardware extremely quickly in response to increased demand. and the incremental cost of going beyond the standard package (50c per GB of storage. and so on. there are better options out there. All the same. SaaS solutions also have the potential to be extremely cheap if you have simple requirements and don’t expect a huge amount of traffic. For this price. SaaS also shares the other standard advantages: easy backups. you get: • 500GB of bandwidth per month • 50GB of hard disk space • 10 000 compute cycles1 per month . $100 per month does look like good value if you are expecting high traffic volumes for your site. as with all cloud computing. Compared to other forms of cloud computing. flexible pricing. Their basic package (priced in US dollars) starts at $1200 per year. so it makes sense to consider their new cloud-based offering: Mosso. with the hosting company taking most of the maintenance burden. For basic starter sites. is its scalability. You can also get a 100MB SQL Server database for $5 per month extra.Cloud computing 2012 The biggest advantage of SaaS. It’s a little peculiar that this is their basic offering. so one might have thought there would be a more limited (and therefore cheaper) option available. SaaS is extremely user-friendly. 25c per GB of bandwidth.
