Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale, similar to a utility over a network. At the foundation of cloud computing is the broader concept of converged infrastructure and shared services.
Cloud computing, or in simpler shorthand just "the cloud", also focuses on maximizing the effectiveness of the shared resources. Cloud resources are usually not only shared by multiple users but are also dynamically reallocated per demand which aids in allocating resources to users. This can work for allocating resources to users. This approach should maximize the use of computing power thus reducing environmental damage as well since less power, air conditioning, rack space, etc. are required for a variety of functions. With cloud computing, multiple users can access a single server to retrieve and update their data without purchasing licenses for different applications.
Cloud Technologies - Benefits:
- Reduced time and expenses for multiple infrastructures and products deployment
- Extremely fast full PaaS infrastructure rollout – can take 10 minutes instead of 2 weeks
- Reduce CAPEX by 90% and OPEX by 50%
- Flexible cost – pay only for actual used resources
- Adherence to common standards, common architecture and common Middleware enables the implementation of cloud-enabled applications and the deployment them to any kind of cloud (private, public and hybrid)
- Allows to reduce software development life cycle for big enterprises due to reduction of environment and deployment processes management
