Cloud computing dates back to the 1950s, and over the years, it has evolved through many phases, including grid, utility and on-demand computing.Within the next three years, 75 percent of existing non-cloud apps will move to the cloud. Today’s computing landscape shows companies not only adopting cloud but using more than one cloud environment.
01 The Question
What is cloud computing?
Cloud computing, often referred to as simply “the cloud,” is the delivery of on-demand computing resources — everything from applications to data centers — over the internet on a pay-for-use basis.
- Elastic resources: Scale up or down quickly and easily to meet changing demand.
- Metered services: Pay only for what you use.
- Self-service: Find all the IT resources you need, with self-service access.
Benefits of Cloud Computing
Cloud computing benefits continuously evolve with the addition of new services, the conducting of uncompromising research and the creation of innovations that relentlessly push the boundaries of the underlying technology and architecture.
- Cost efficienty
- Scale: flexibility and elasticity
- Audit and compliance
- Business continuity planning
The underlying paradigm shift for the recent cloud development sector is that businesses think about reducing infrastructure costs, reusing tools and solutions in order to scale, focus on core business not on operational activities.
The entire infrastructure for storage, database and servers may be seamlessly provided through the cloud (IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service)
The development tools, integration tools and user interface tools can be controlled via the cloud. The code may be developed directly in the clod. (PaaS – Platform as a Service)
The industry-related solution will most likely run on cloud infrastructure and a cloud powered platform, turning into a software as a service model. (SaaS)
Cloud Apps are not exclusively dependent on web browsers to be accessed. At OvesEnterprise we consider that cloud application evolve through the cloud and should feature multi-tenancy and support for virtualization technology.
In this respect, our offshore software development team from Romania has already a valuable experience with re-engineering web applications that possess similar authentic features as the cloud apps of the latest versions.
How cloud computing works
While cloud computing services all work a little differently, many provide a friendly, browser-based dashboard that makes it easier for IT professionals and developers to order resources and manage their accounts. Some cloud computing services are also designed to work with REST APIs and a command-line interface, giving developers multiple options.
