A Deep Look Into The Cloud Computing

8:54 AM

Nowadays everyone is talking about “the cloud computing” but what does it mean? A better way to get an answer to this significant question is to look back and give a glance into the life before cloud computing, usually when you recall the golden era of technology you’ll definitely observe that everything was in a traditional manner for instance business applications have always been very complicated and expensive, the amount and variety of hardware and software required to run them was overwhelming.

You needed a whole team of experts to install, configure, test, run, secure, and update them manually, and when you multiply this gigantic effort across dozens or hundreds of apps, it’s easy to see why the biggest companies with the best IT departments didn’t succeed in so many ways, while the mid-sized or small businesses didn’t get a chance at all.

With due to these hazards and difficulties working with computers became challenging and boring but somehow a new invention come up, that invention was based on the concept of connecting a large number of computers through a real-time communication network-typically the internet-according to the technological terminology this concept is called the cloud computing, so the cloud is the internet itself, while cloud computing is a synonym for distributed computing.

However, cloud computing eliminates those headaches because you don’t have to manage hardware and software incompatibilities or configurations you only have to pay for what you need, upgrades are mostly automatic and scaling up or down is easy only because of the cloud “the internet”. Now everything is up and running on the network, cloud based apps can be up and running in days or weeks, and they cost less. With a cloud app, you just open a browser, log in, customize the app, and start using it.

In a cloud computing system, there's a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user's side decrease. The only thing the user's computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system's interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud's network takes care of the rest.

There's a good chance you've already used some form of cloud computing. If you have an e-mail account with a Web-based e-mail service like Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail or Gmail, then you've had some experience with cloud computing. Instead of running an email program on your computer, you log in to a Web e-mail account remotely. The software and storage for your account doesn't exist on your computer -- it's on the service's computer cloud.

So what basically makes up a cloud computing system? Find out in the below video, and share your thoughts about cloud computing in the comments section.
