Cloud computing is a model for allowing convenient on-demand access from anywhere to a shared pool of computing resources these can include; software, data, platform, and storage.
The cloud allows you to store data virtually, so you can easily access your files on any device.
Stored cloud computing is the storing of data and applications on remote servers and accessing them via the internet rather than saving or installing them on your personal or office computer.
The term cloud is used because data and applications are stored on a cloud or collection of web servers and computers owned by a third party.
The cloud can be accessed via the cloud computing systems interface software that can be as simple as using a web-based service which hosts all the applications and files that you would need for your job or personal life.
The cloud is being used not only to store data but also as an inexpensive, efficient and flexible alternative to purchasing running and maintaining in-house computing equipment and software.
The cloud gives you the ability to work anywhere at any time because your information is always at your fingertips, for example; an online email account you log into a web email account remotely through a browser but the storage for your account doesn’t exist on your computer it belongs in the email providers cloud.
How is Your Data Stored?
Cloud computing architecture is comprised of two parts the front end and the back end which are connected by the Internet. The front end represents the computer that you as a client sees, this side requires you to access the cloud computing system gaining access can be simple as using an internet browser or more complex by using a unique interface software which lets you access the cloud. The back end of a Cloud computing system is comprised of the computers servers and data storage systems which store all your files and information. This is the part that does all the work.
Cloud computing companies build and redundancy where they save multiple backup copies of your work in case of problems, however, the more clients they have the more storage space they need so cloud computing companies require at least twice the number of storage devices to store all their clients’ information.
Why choose cloud computing as a viable option for data storage?
- using cloud computing allows you to access your applications and data from anywhere so long as you can link with the cloud through the internet none of your data would be confined to a single hard drive or location
- with the movement of your files to the web you no longer have to pay for expensive high memory computers you simply need a device that is powerful enough to run the middleware needed to connect to the cloud system
- in a company-wide setting when you use the cloud your employer will not need to buy software or software licenses for every employee instead they will pay a fee to a cloud computing company to let all their employees access a suite of software online
