Cloud Computing is an economical style of computing which involves delivering hosted services over the Internet. It can be broadly classified as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) and includes providing platform, technology and applications in the cloud. Cloud Computing services are increasingly being adopted by enterprises owing to the instant deployment and reduced expenditure of the Cloud.
With no Capital Expenditure (CapEx) and low Total Cost of Ownership, Cloud Computing solutions benefit companies on various levels. To stay in the ‘clouds’ makes processes easier and quicker without the rigours of technology implementation or data storage issues. Since the entire cloud is managed by a cloud computing service provider, there is a no-worry approach with regard to security precautions, version updates or infrastructural investment.
