What is cloud computing?

Simply put, cloud computing refers to providing computing services over the internet, encompassing servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence. These services are accessed remotely, via “the cloud,” enabling quicker innovation, adaptable resources, and cost efficiencies. With cloud computing, you pay for the specific services you utilize, assisting in reducing operating costs, optimizing infrastructure management, and adapting to evolving organization requirements.

Cloud Computing Service Models

In the realm of adopting cloud computing architecture, there’s no universal solution. What suits one company might not align with another’s needs. This versatility and adaptability are fundamental aspects of cloud computing. Most cloud computing services fall into three categories: infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS). Understanding what they are and how they’re different makes it easier to accomplish your organization’s goals.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

IaaS is the most foundational category of cloud computing services. With IaaS, you essentially lease IT infrastructure—such as servers, virtual machines (VMs), storage, and networks—from a cloud provider on a pay-as-you-go basis. Examples of IaaS providers include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Platform as a Service (PaaS)

PaaS provides a platform for building, deploying, and managing applications over the Internet. In this model, cloud providers offer development tools, middleware, and runtime environments to facilitate the development, testing, and deployment of applications. PaaS abstracts much of the infrastructure complexity, allowing developers to focus on writing and deploying code. PaaS offerings typically include features such as database management, application scaling, and automated deployment pipelines. Examples of PaaS providers include Heroku, Microsoft Azure App Service, Google App Engine, and AWS Elastic Beanstalk.

Software as a Service (SaaS)

SaaS delivers software applications over the internet on a subscription basis. In this model, cloud providers host and maintain software applications, making them accessible to users via web browsers or APIs. Users can access these applications from any device with an internet connection, without needing to install or manage the software locally. SaaS applications cover a wide range of business functions, including email, customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and collaboration tools. Popular examples of SaaS providers include Salesforce, Microsoft Office 365, Google Workspace, and Dropbox.
