Cloud Computing Services by Tech Support Jacksonville.
Cloud computing involves deploying groups of remote servers and software networks that allow centralized data storage and online access to computer services, data or resources.
Cloud computing, or a simpler term, just “the cloud”, also focuses on maximizing the effectiveness of the shared resources. A cost effective concept, with cloud computing, multiple users can access a single server to retrieve and update their data without purchasing licenses for different applications.
The term “moving to cloud” also refers to an organization moving away from a traditional CAPEX model (buy the dedicated hardware and depreciate it over a period of time) to the OPEX model (use a shared cloud infrastructure and pay as one uses it).
Cloud Computing proponents claim that cloud computing allows companies to avoid upfront infrastructure costs, and focus on projects that differentiate their businesses instead of on infrastructure. Cloud Computing proponents also claim that cloud computing allows enterprises to get their applications up and running faster, with improved manageability and less maintenance, and enables IT to more rapidly adjust resources to meet fluctuating and unpredictable business demand. Cloud providers typically use a “pay as you go” model offering flexibility for growth as well as cost savings. Companies can scale up as computing needs increase and then scale down again as demands decrease
Types of Cloud Computing Platforms
Public clouds are owned and operated by companies that use them to offer rapid access to affordable computing resources to other organizations or individuals. With public cloud services, users don’t need to purchase hardware, software or supporting infrastructure, which is owned and managed by providers.
A private cloud is owned and operated by a single company that controls the way vitalized resources and automated services are customized and used by various lines of business and groups. Private clouds exist to take advantage of many of cloud’s efficiencies, while providing more control of resources.
A hybrid cloud uses a private cloud foundation combined with the strategic use of public cloud services, such as Amazon. The reality is a private cloud can’t exist in isolation from the rest of a company’s IT resources and the public cloud. Most companies with private clouds will evolve to manage workloads across data centers, private clouds and public clouds—thereby creating hybrid clouds.
The present availability of high-capacity networks, low-cost computers and storage devices as well as the widespread adoption of hardware virtualization, service-oriented architecture, and autonomic and utility computing have led to a growth in cloud computing.
