Cloud and Data center Solutions

Most organizations rely heavily on data for their respective day-to-day operations, irrespective of the industry or nature of the data. This data can have a wide range of applications ranging from making business decisions, identifying patterns for either improving the services provided or analyzing weak links in the workflow, and much more.

Cloud 

A cloud can be described as a term used to describe a group of services either a global or individual network of servers, which possesses a unique function. Cloud is not a physical entity, but they are a group or network of remote servers which are arched together to operate as a single entity for an assigned task.

In a nutshell, cloud is a building with lots of computer systems. We access the cloud via internet because cloud Providers provide cloud as a service.

One of the many confusions that we have is whether cloud is same as cloud compute? The answer is no. Cloud services like compute run in the cloud. The Compute service offered by cloud lets users to ‘rent’ computer systems in datacenter on internet. Other example of cloud service is storage.

 

Now, what exactly is cloud computing? AWS says, “Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of IT resources over the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing. Instead of buying, owning, and maintaining physical data centers and servers, you can access technology services, such as computing power, storage, and databases, on an as-needed basis from a cloud provider like Amazon Web Services (AWS).”

Types of Cloud:

 

Businesses use different methods of cloud resources, mainly there are four of them : 

Public Cloud: It is a cloud methodology that is open to all with the Internet on the pay-per-usage method.

Private Cloud: It is a cloud methodology used by organizations to build their data centers that are accessible only with the permission of the organization.

Hybrid Cloud: It is a cloud methodology that is a combination of public and private clouds. It serves the different needs of an organization for its services.

Community Cloud: It is a cloud methodology that provides services to a group of people in an organization or a single community.

These Data centers allow the data to organise, process, store and disseminate upon the application used by businesses.
