What is Cloud Computing

by bernt & torsten

Someone asked me the other day what is Cloud Computing? I told the person that asked the question that clouds computing is the on-demand delivery of computing power, database storage, file storage, applications, and other IT resources through a cloud services platform offered by Google, AWS, Microsoft, IBM, and other providers and the cloud platform is delivered via the internet with a pay-as-you-go pricing.

Deployment Models

All the cloud platform providers offer a range of deployment models, from all on-premises to fully deployed in the cloud. Many customers begin with a new project in the cloud, and they might integrate some on-premises applications with these new projects in a hybrid architecture. They might decide to keep some legacy systems on-premises. Over time, they might migrate more and more of their infrastructure to the cloud, and they might eventually reach an all-in-the-cloud deployment.

Products and Services
