We’ve all heard of cloud computing, but what is it? Basically it’s like a collection of big servers with lots of storage space and it’s always on demand. On demand simply means it’s available when you want it, for an hour, for a minute, and it lets users need what they want, when they want it all managed by a third party service provider. Control Z are here to help set up cloud IT service SA for you.
There are a few different types of cloud infrastructure – it can be private or public, or a combination of both. Public cloud is available to anyone on the internet, while private cloud infrastructure is strictly for use by a company. It doesn’t matter if it is public or private cloud computing, it exists to provide users with easy and fast access to cloud IT service SA. The hybrid cloud (a mix of public and private) exists to serve individuals with a wide range of ways to access the stored information.
There are 3 types of cloud computing software IaaS (Infrastructure as a service), SaaS (software as a service) and PaaS (Platform as a service) PaaS works in a virtual environment and can support the lifecycle of developing cloud applications. SaaS runs on remote computers that are owned by others it is connected to your computer through the web browser and internet. IaaS is for storage, servers and data and networking services on a rental basis.
