Cloud computing has only become one of the best ways to deliver enterprise applications and also a great way to provide a great solution for a lot of companies when extending their infrastructure or for launching some new innovations.
Cloud computing is something that has multiple meanings. One of the most common meanings would refer to the running workloads which would remotely work over the internet in a data centre, also known as the public cloud model. Very popular public cloud offerings are used by millions of individuals. For example, Apple Inc data centres, Google data centres and more just to name a few. Cloud computing is very simple. Imagine you have a device that you are using. A lot of the work that needs to be done is basically done on a remote cloud and not on your device.
Another great example that I would like to talk about would be cloud gaming. Everything that you do on the game is done in a remote data centre and not on your device. Your device only delivers the game to you. Your device must also be capable enough to run the game. But all the progress that you would have made will be stored in a remote data centre which you probably have no idea about.
There is the other meaning of cloud computing that I would like to describe. It would be a virtualised pool of resources, from some raw computing power, to application functionality which is available on demand. When customers procure the cloud services, the provider would fulfil all those requests with the help of advanced automation, rather than manual provisioning of the request. The very advantage is agility. Cloud computing is quick. As long as your internet connection is good, cloud computing works fine.
Now let me talk about SAAS, which is also known as software as a service. This kind of public cloud computing is something that delivers applications with the help of the internet, through the browser. It can be any browser in the world. It can be Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or others. One of the most popular SAAS applications for business can actually be found in Google G suite or even Microsoft Office 365.
SAAS applications or software as a service applications have been extensive when it comes to configuration options, and also development environments which would enable the customers to court their own modifications and their own additions. I feel that this particular form of cloud computing is the one that serves the customers in the best way possible. There are a lot of other kinds as well.
