What is Cloud Computing?
All organisations have their unique needs, but commonly people need to be connected and management needs to maintain security and control. In the cloud, these aims are accomplished by giving people flexible options for working and collaboration from diverse locations and multiple 'end-points'. At the same time resources can be centrally managed without expensive IT overhead.
Cloud Computing means making use of a network of remote servers hosted (usually by a third party) offsite to store, manage, and process data, instead of relying on a local, on-site server. Computational resources are provided 'on demand', in a flexible scenario where the user organisation only pays for the services and capacity it needs.
In the traditional server-client model, data and applications are located on the user's premises on their own hardware. In the Cloud model, the user's computer need only be a thin-client, with little computing power of its own, serving primarily as a display terminal, with the heavy processing occurring on a server 'farm' in another location. A frequent convention for a provider's internet-hosted services, or even the services of all providers combined, is "The Cloud".
In practical terms, a customer rents capacity on the provider's server(s) in their data centre, and connect across the internet. The provider is responsible for configuring, maintaining, upgrading and backing up all hardware and software. Generally the client pays for a service, such as remote storage, email, or customer relationship management (CRM), rather than the server itself, and pays a monthly fee.
What can I do in the Cloud?
Hosted email is one of the most common hosted applications; office productivity software (Microsoft Office); Accounting; CRM; project management; email marketing; spam and virus filtering; data storage; ecommerce; blogs and online publishing; multimedia content streaming; databases. The list goes on.
What are the advantages?
It is generally accepted that cloud-based services are more affordable and more flexible, because you don't need your own server room, and being scalable, you can access your data from anywhere. The majority of servers and broadband links are not used to full capacity most of the time. Cloud providers effectively offer a time-share arrangement, enabling a group of users to share a pool of hardware; a user pays system which splits the cost of servers, electricity, data links, backup systems, IT staff, etc. The cloud provider can make more capacity available to you when you need it. CAPEX outlay on server hardware and software, and unpredictable maintenance costs, are replaced by a predictable OPEX cost.
