We are living in the cutting age of technology where every new day there is a new innovative product being released in the market. Early technologies involved data being held by mainframe computers, then it went to the servers, today cloud computing is the new trend. With cloud computing all the data and information can be accessed from anywhere on the cloud.
It is the mandate of the cloud computing service provider to provide storage space for you as well as ensuring their safety and infrastructure maintenance. The user is only required to have internet in order to gain access to cloud connection.
The services of cloud computing are very beneficial since they help to save money and time. It is therefore necessary to make a wise choice when looking for cloud computing providers.
Types of cloud computing services
Software as a Services ‘SaaS’ is a type of cloud computing that enables users to have access to programs that are on the cloud. Users are required to have login credentials to gain access to the programs.
Infrastructure as a Service ‘Iaas’ allows the user to use software’s and applications on the cloud without having to install them on their PC. The user is also not required to do the maintenance since the cloud computing service provider is responsible for that.
Platform as a service ‘PaaS’ is another type of cloud computing service very similar to IaaS only that with platform as a service you get to hire the platform and not the hardware. The cloud computing provider also does the maintenance.
