WHAT IS A CLOUD SERVICE?

A Cloud service means a service made available to users on demand via the Internet from a cloud computing or Internet Service Provider's servers as opposed to being provided from a client/company's own on-premises servers/computers. A Cloud service is designed to provide easy, scalable access to applications, resources and services, and is fully managed by a cloud service/Internet Service Provider.

A cloud service can dynamically scale to meet the needs of its users, and because the service provider supplies the hardware and software necessary for the service, there's no need for a client/company to provision or deploy its own resources or allocate IT staff to manage the service.

MAIN BENEFITS OF CLOUD COMPUTING:

  • Self-service provisioning: End users can spin up computing resources for almost any type of workload, on-demand, and without direct intervention from IT administrators
  • 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.

EXAMPLES OF A CLOUD SERVICE INCLUDES:

  • Online data storage
  • Backup solutions
  • Web-based e-mail services
  • Hosted office suites and document collaboration services
  • Database processing
  • Managed technical support services and more.
