Cloud Computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
Fundamental Aspects of Cloud Computing:
- On-Demand Self-Service
- Broad Network Access
- Resource Pooling
- Rapid Elasticity
- Measured Service
There are three cloud service delivery models:
Cloud Computing has three deployment models:
Cloud Computing has the following key characteristics.
- Agility improves with users’ ability to re-provision technological infrastructure resources.
- Application programming interface (API) accessibility to software that enables machines to interact with cloud software.
- Cost is claimed to be reduced and in a public cloud delivery model.
- Device and location independence enable users to access systems using a web browser regardless of their location or device (e.g., PC, mobile phone).
- Virtualization technology allows servers and storage devices to be shared and utilization be increased.
- Multi-Tenancy enables sharing of resources and costs across a large pool of users thus allowing for:
- Centralization of infrastructure
- Peak-load capacity increase
- Utilisation and efficiency improvement
- Reliability is improved if multiple redundant sites are used, which makes well-designed cloud computing suitable for business continuity and disaster recovery.
- Scalability and elasticity via dynamic (“on-demand”) provisioning of resources on a fine-grained, self-service basis near real-time, without users having to engineer for peak loads.
- Performance is monitored and consistent.
- Security could improve due to centralization of data, increased security-focused resources, etc. Security is often as good as or better than other traditional systems, in part because providers are able to devote resources to solving security issues that many customers cannot afford.
- Maintenance of cloud computing applications is easier.
Cloud computing brings the benefits across three categories: Economic, Architectural, and Strategic. First, it helps reduce IT costs and shift budgets from CAPEX to OPEX. Second, it improves the experience of end-users. Third, it helps companies focus on their core competencies.
The key benefits of cloud computing are:
