The world operates virtually now. Every person and organization stores their data on a digital platform, the “cloud.” So, what is cloud computing? Cloud computing is the delivery of IT services — servers, databases, software, analytics, and more — onto the cloud. The cloud stores all these services without you having to maintain different physical centers for different services. This could be a third-party public cloud or a private cloud used by a single organization, or in some cases, a mix of both.
There are four types of cloud computing. SaaS (Software as a Service) typically uses a browser-based interface and works on a subscription basis. IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) uses proper IT infrastructure like storage, networks, and virtual machines to deliver services on the cloud. PaaS (Platform as a Service) is specially meant for developers since they can upload services using advanced tools, APIs, and IT tools.
Finally, serverless cloud computing is when you can upload services without spending time on platforms, software, or infrastructure. The latest trends suggest that there has been a rise in the use of serverless computing. It has several benefits. The pay-as-you-go model works better for some rather than paying a subscription amount every month. People have also noticed a reduction in back-end failures.
Nevertheless, all four have been developed to ensure that your work gets integrated and stays in one place. Choose the one that works for you and your organization and enjoy effortless cloud storage of IT services.
