Cloud Computing

 

Cloud computing enables companies to consume compute resources as a utility just like electricity rather than having to build and maintain computing infrastructures in-house.

Cloud computing promises several attractive benefits for businesses and end users. Three of the main benefits of cloud computing includes:

  • Self-service provisioning: End users can spin up computing resources for almost any type of workload on-demand.
  • Elasticity: Companies can scale up as computing needs increase and then scale down again as demands decrease.

Pay per use: Computing resources are measured at a granular level, allowing users to pay only for the resources and workloads they use.

Cloud computing services can be private, public or hybrid.
