Cloud Computing applications are those applications utilizing remote servers which reside somewhere on the internet or any other remote network to store and process data, services and applications instead of locally stored server computers. In other words, cloud computing development means somehow sharing resources. In which you rent something outside your organisation, the cloud, for many purposes such as data storage, computing processing or software utilization. Often, the cloud computing services providers are the companies owning or running powerful data centres or in demand software solutions.
The companies that need services like additional storage, testing environments, enhanced security, better computing processing powers or web hosting are the clients for the cloud computing services providers. The providers offer the clients cloud computing development, services, solutions and applications.
What benefits cloud computing offers?
Cloud computing actually offers many benefits through this efficient shared resources fashion. Here are few of these advantages.
You can always rent a small cloud for your needs while having the option to upgrade it once your business needs grow. Also, you can stop the rent anytime once you are in a no more need for it.
In this efficient cloud computing technology, you only pay for whatever you need just whenever you need it. This technology saves the business many resources that used to be wasted earlier before the availability of the cloud computing services.
Moreover,by making use of cloud computing technology, capital expenditure CAPEX converts into operational expenditure OPEX, which is very healthy for the investment planning and operations. In CAPEX investments, you pay an amount initially, then try to make the best use “investment” for this already paid amount in your business in terms of utilizing the resources you already paid for to make the highest revenues. However, in OPEX you pay nothing in advance but you only pay for your operational costs that are needed to run your business as it goes.
Using the cloud computing services, the service providers take care of most of the maintenance activities which removes that burden from your shoulders allowing you to use fewer number of engineers and administrators.
The cloud computing applications offer you by default automatic scalability features, in which whenever your business has a peak performance, the cloud automatically assigns you more resources to cover your continuous changing workloads. Of course, it all depends on the contract you have with the provider.
Using cloud computing services, you can usually get access to your information, applications or services regardless of your location. As long as you have the required privileges, it does not matter whether you are accessing your services or data from the Arabs peninsula, east or west.
