Cloud Hosting

Evolution is striving to reach for the stars and the evolutionary cloud computing sure takes computing at a new high or dare I say cloud No. 9. Cloud computing is based on the concept of “sharing”. In large companies where the hardware and software requirements are massive the costs required to buy these resources is very high. Imagine the need to buy software and their licenses for individual users!

Here is where cloud computing comes in handy as instead of an entire software suite a lone application (an interface or even a web browser) to connect to a handy cloud network is enough.

The cloud= (hardware + software + storage + service + interface) are delivered, henceforth nullifying the need to own these. Email is a good example of cloud computing as neither the software nor the storage exists on local computer, but on the cloud of the server’s computer. Another good example is of Google and Amazon which encapsulate there IT resources in the cloud, thereby eliminating the complex constraints of time, space, cost and power.

In cloud computing (also called utility computing) virtual servers are available across the internet.

A cloud system has a:

Front end: user sees (computer and application to access the cloud)

Back end: cloud section which does the processing and is a combination of the computer server and data storage systems.

Advantages of cloud computing.

Safety measures while adopting cloud computing

There is a long list of service providers who provide cloud hosting services. While the experts believe that Amazon Web Services (AWS) tops the list, there are others like Rackspace Inc., CenturyLink/Savvis, Salesforce.com, Verizon/Terremark, VMware, Bluelock, Citrix, Joyent and Microsoft who are making a mark. They have very capable and well trained staff and excellent data centre facilities.

So moving to cloud office will definitely let you concentrate all your energy and money in growing your business and improving your efficiency and it definitely makes good business sense.
