The benefits of the “cloud” according to our team
Many companies start using the so-called “cloud services” more often. It is a leap between traditional IT and contemporary one. We have chosen some vital factors why we think so. Using the cloud, you get:
• Reliability and security
• Optimized expenditures
• Global reach
Most commonly cloud services administer various IT services hosted in-house such as provisioning certain applications from the cloud, replacing in-house backup with cloud storage, and accessing everything from databases to software directly from a web browser without any kind of installation. It’s great, isn’t it?
There are three basic types of cloud services that WITmind offers to the end-user:
• Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) – This is one of the most basic categories of cloud computing services. Basically with IaaS, you rent IT infrastructure, meaning servers and virtual machines, storage, networks, operating systems — generally from a cloud provider on a pay-as-you-go basis or individual agreement.
• Platform as a service (PaaS) – Platform as a service refers to cloud computing services that provide an on-request setting for developing, testing, delivering, and managing software applications. This environment is designed to make the lives of developers easier by assuring them with a habitat where they can quickly create web or mobile apps, without concern about setting up or managing the servers, storage, network, and databases needed for development.
• Software as a service (SaaS) – Nowadays “software as a service” is one of the most common approaches for delivering software applications over the Internet. Using SaaS, cloud operators host and maintain all the software operations any user could make like any kind of maintenance, software upgrades, and security patching. Every end-user can reach the cloud via their phones or personal computers.
