Data is definitely in the Cloud in this century, and cloud computing is central to every business and modern family life.
Cloud Computing is simply storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet, rather than on your computer’s hard drive. It enables convenient, on-demand access to a shared pool of resources–networks, servers, storage, apps, and services– that can be rapidly and easily accessed by end-users.
A good example of Cloud Computing is Google Drive, which many of us use. Its storage is online, and it works with the cloud apps Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides. It can be used on the iPad and on smart phones. G-Mail, Google Calendar, and Google Maps are also considered Cloud Computing.
For businesses, government, and non-profit organizations and other large groups, Cloud Computing has become the answer for managing data.
If there is a group of end-users with separate devices who need to have their work synced securely for collaborative projects, such as many employees in a corporation, Cloud Computing is a great solution. That’s where Cloud Computing for businesses comes in.
The Cloud Computing “Stack” is structured in three levels composed of Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Each of these levels provides a function. The Software apps are designed for end-users, delivered over the web. The Platform is a set of tools and services to code and deploy the apps easily. The Infrastructure is the hardware and software that powers it all– servers, storage, networks, operating systems.
