What is cloud computing? When to use a cloud?


Hi Friends, Sorry i was quite busy from previous couple of months So don’t get time for post. It’s really great experience working on cloud computing, basically on PaaS(Platform as a Service), BaaS(Backend as a Service) and IaaS(Infrastructure as a Service) with ShepHertz. I came across multiple questions, people asking about cloud computing segment. So i thought of write a blog on Cloud Computing.

Let me explain cloud computing segments in details to understand Cloud Computing.

Cloud computing: Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.

Cloud Computing Segment:

IaaS(Infrastructure as a Service) – Infrastructure as a Service is a provision model of cloud computing in which an organization outsources the equipment used to support operations, including storage, hardware, servers and networking components. The service provider owns the equipment and is responsible for housing, running and maintaining it. The client typically pays on a per-use basis. Ex- Amazon Web Services, BlueLock, Cloudscaling and Datapipe

PaaS(Platform as a Service) – Platform as a Service is one of the GROWING sector of cloud computing. PaaS basically help developer to speed the development of app, saving money and most important innovating their applications and business instead of setting up configurations and managing things like servers and databases. In one line I can say Platform as a service (PaaS) automates the configuration, deployment and ongoing management of applications in the cloud. Ex: Heroku, EngineYard, App42 PaaS and OpenShift

SaaS(Software as a Service) – Software as a Service, SaaS is a software delivery method that provides access to software and its functions remotely as a Web-based service. Ex: Abiquo’s and Akamai

BaaS(Backed as a Service) – Backend as a service (BaaS), also known as “mobile backend as a service” (MBaaS),is a model for providing web and mobile app developers with a way to link their applications to backend cloud storage while also providing features such as user management, push notifications, and integration with social networking services. Exp: Kinvey, StackMob, App42 API and Parse

Hopefully this post makes it much easier to understand cloud computing. Let me know in the comments if you love it or find any difficulties to understand.
