CLOUD 101: What is cloud computing?

SO! You’ve been tasked by your company to move to the cloud. You have a small but mighty IT staff, resources are low, and now it’s time to do some research.

What is the cloud?
Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of compute power, database storage, applications, and other IT resources through a cloud provider, like say, Amazon Web Services (AWS). With cloud computing, you don’t need to make large upfront investments in hardware, nor spend time maintaining that hardware. Instead, you can quickly provision the right type and size of computing resourcing you need to power your latest applications or operate your IT department.

The cloud provides a simple way to access servers, storage, databases, and a board set of applications via the internet. AWS owns and maintains the network-connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application.

Key Benefits:

    • Trade capital expense for variable expense
    • Benefit from large economies of scale
    • Stop guessing capacity

    • Reduce hardware costs
