What is Cloud Computing?

You have a lot of data, have you ever wondered how to process that data ??

Have you ever wondered how to store that data and how many devices will be needed to capture and process that data?

Here cloud computing comes to the fore

Cloud Computing refers to the delivery of computer resources — including servers, storage, websites, network, software, statistics, and intelligence — over the Internet (“cloud”) to provide faster innovation, flexibility, and scale economics. You should only pay for the cloud services you use, to help reduce your operating costs, to use your infrastructure more efficiently and on a scale as your business needs to change.

We all use smartphones, have we ever wondered how much data we generate like messages, calls, emails, photos, videos, and music. About 48 exabytes of data is generated monthly by a single smartphone user.

Now imagine that this data is duplicated by 5 million smartphone users. That’s too much data to be managed by the traditional system. This large amount of data is called Big Data.

Let’s take a look at minute-generated data online!

  • 2.1 Million Snaps shared on Snapchat.
  • 3.8 Million search queries were conducted on google
  • 1.0 Million People Log In To Facebook
  • 4.5 million videos viewed on Youtube
  • 188 Million emails sent.

          Lots of data. Isn’t it ???

For analysis, data cloud computing is important because it helps store and process data without having portable device numbers because you take advantage of those portable devices with the help of the cloud and pay for utilities without taking up server load and bandwidth on your website.

When a company decides to opt for the  cloud, it means that the company decides to keep its IT infrastructure off-site. The cloud provider is responsible for managing customer IT infrastructure, integrating applications, and developing new skills and operations to meet market needs.

       Benefits of cloud computing:


  • Cost – remove large costs
  • Speed-providing instant development and testing environment
  • Global-scale-scale elastically
  • Productivity-growing collaboration, predictable performance, and customer segregation
  • Efficiency — the price / best performance of cloud computing
  • Integrity — tolerance, flexibility, distributed systems across all services

You pay for what you use. No matter what storage you use or the processing you do, you will be responsible for what you use. You do not need to sign a contract. Depending on the platform.


Various platforms offering Cloud Computing services:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • IBM Cloud
  • Microsoft Azure
  • IBM Cloud
  • Salesforce
  • VMware
  • Oracle Cloud
  • IBM
  • Alibaba Cloud
  • Microsoft

Types of cloud 

  • Private cloud
  • Hybrid Cloud
  • MultiCloud
  • Cloud Computing Services
  • SaaS
  • PaaS
  • IaaS

Let’s take AWS cloud resources as an example. It provides a variety of services that make it easy for companies to store their data, process it, and use it without having to worry about the traffic or hardware required for it.

The  major AWS services used worldwide:

  • Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute
  • Amazon S3 (Easy Storage Service
  • Amazon VPCs (Virtual Private Cloud)
  • Amazon Cloud Front
  • Amazon Relational Database Services
  • Amazon Sagemaker
  • Amazon Lambda
  • Amazon SNS

There are many other services offered by AWS. Cloud Computing has made it easier for infrastructure to save costs as the app you use when not in use will fall into disrepair and you do not have to pay for that because that is not used. Computer events are provided by cloud computing and server-free environments are also provided by cloud computing.

There is so much to explore and so much to learn about cloud computing. It is a big ocean and once you are immersed in it you will explore many amazing facts about cloud computing and why it is suitable for business infrastructure whether it is as big as TCS or any startup that started its journey a few years ago.
