We are living in the world of various computing devices which are connected with each with the help
of a complex network known as the internet. Millions of bytes of data flow through this network
every day around the world and it is almost impossible for us to store all that data on our devices.
This is the reason why cloud computing came into existence.
Cloud computing is simply the delivery of various computing related services like servers, databases,
storage, networking, analytics etc. with the help of cloud computers over the internet. Cloud
computers are huge computing devices which have large storage capacities and are present in
discrete areas around the world. These cloud computers give us access to store our data in them by
Right after its creation, cloud computing totally changed the way we manage our data. Cloud
computing is not only useful in commercial areas but it is also very important for normal users. Here
are some benefits of cloud computing.
This is the biggest benefit of cloud computing. When you store your data on cloud computers, you
can save a large amount which you pay for buying expensive hardware devices for storing your data.
You can buy a good amount of data in very less amount of money.
As the data is stored on the cloud computers, it can be accessed from any device present on any part
of the world without any problem. All you need is an internet connection to access your data.
Cloud computing is a big relief for the information technology-related companies. Before cloud
computing, these companies have to rack and stack a lot of servers and storage devices which
manages the data and other software of the company. But now they can store all their data in a
cloud which saves their time and increase their productivity.
Cloud computers are more reliable than our storage devices as they are disaster proof. Other than
our storage devices which can be easily damaged, clouds are more reliable and the data can be
easily mirrored on different redundant websites on the cloud provider network.
The uses of cloud computing are limitless but there are some fields where it can be used to its
fullest. Following are some of the most common uses of cloud computing.
Big Data Analytics
Cloud computers have a huge collection of structured and unstructured data and those computers
have the ability to access any part of that data very easily. This can be extremely useful in the
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a service simply means using an infrastructure according to pay per use
architecture. This can help companies in saving a huge amount of money which they spend on
acquiring, managing and maintaining IT infrastructure. Sometimes the organizations also switch to
platform as a service scheme for the same purpose. Both of them can be a good option for saving
