concept to really understand what it is. The following information gives you
insightful facts about what cloud computing is and components thereof.
The Definition of Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is simply the assignment of a wide array of applications to
a designated server that is outside your personal computer. This special
server is able to hold all your software, hardware and any other applications
that are necessary to run your company or business.
In the cloud, companies are able to store vital data, access word processors
remotely, use email services and the like. Complex database applications will
also be accessed in the cloud. In other words, it can be defined as a onestop shop for all your computing needs, without having to run heavy
applications on your computer.
There are specialized companies that have these servers and provide this
service to both companies and individuals. Cloud computing comes with
many benefits and the obvious one is convenience and efficiency. Cloud
computing companies have invested heavily to make sure that they satisfy
the needs of their esteemed clients. This concept is not complicated at all
and most people have already used it, with or without their knowledge. For
example, if you have an email account with Yahoo or Gmail, you are using
cloud computing because their software is not on your computer.
Cloud computing is definitely a revolution because it is helpful and easy to
implement. With a web browser, clients can access their information and
engage different applications without investing in expensive software or
paying hefty license fees to use some web infrastructure. A cloud computing
system or network is complex to say the least. However, the following is a
simple breakdown of some of the top components to expect therein.
The cloud computing system is made up of the front end and the back end.
The front end is the interface that the client or the user will see when they
are accessing information or data from the cloud. The back end is composed
of various programs and applications which are stored in a dedicated server.
Some clients can choose to get services of a private or public cloud. Some
will go for a hybrid cloud. This basically means that they can access their
data as per their own definitions to allow access to those who are permitted.
There are certain vital protocols that the system follows to deliver the right
results. Additionally, the software used in the cloud is special and it is
referred to as middleware.
