The Future Is In The Cloud…Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing is a hot topic. Its birth and history dates back many years but recent technology developments means that everyone can now enjoy the benefits ‘Cloud Computing’ offers.

Benefits of Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing brings with it many benefits. These include:

  • Access to a huge range of applications without having to download or install anything
  • Applications can be accessed from any computer, anywhere in the world
  • Users can avoid expenditure on hardware and software; only using what they need
  • Companies can share resources in one place
  • Consumption is billed as a utility with minimal upfront costs

The ‘Cloud’ itself is a virtualisation of resources – networks, servers, applications, data storage and services – which the end user has on-demand access to. These resources can be provided with minimal management or service provider interaction.

Cloud computing offers the end user a far greater range of applications and services than they may necessarily have access to otherwise. Therefore the cloud enables your business to be far more scalable without the huge IT investment.

There are several differences from traditional hosting to cloud hosting. The main differences are:

  • Cloud Computing is sold on demand
  • The service is managed by the provider
  • The user can determine the amount of service they take
  • Users can log on to the network from any computer in the world
