The concept of cloud computing in recent years has undoubtedly reached new heights in popularity with an exponential advancement in technology. Business leaders and IT officials now have realized that potential increase in overall productivity can be accomplished by deploying dynamic software to manage and administer their projects with more efficiency.
Some of the key features of cloud computing that has made it a buzz word in the business world are given below:
On-demand and self-service: It enables the end-user to unilaterally configure the computing capabilities as per their own requirements, such as modification in server time and network storage settings. It also allows the end-user to perform building, deploying, managing and scheduling tasks more efficiently.
Extensive network access: It gives an extensive access to system capabilities through a network and can be accessed via different devices like mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and workstations.
Resource pooling: In cloud computing, the resources are pooled to serve multiple consumers with the usage of a multi-tenant model and diverse physical and virtual resources allocated and reallocated according to customer’s growing demands. But, it is not at all possible for the end-user to know where exactly the resources are inhabited.
Quick elasticity: System capabilities can be elastically provisioned and can be rapidly scaled up and down that too directly proportional to demand. To the end-user, these capabilities are available for provisioning, which are boundless and can be appropriated to any extent at any time.
Measured service: Cloud hosting systems robotically administer and augment the usage of resources simply by leveraging a metering capability at some level of abstraction suitable to the type of service, including processing, bandwidth, storage and active user accounts. Resource usage can be supervised, measured, and reported, which ways the required transparency for both the provider and end-sure of the utilized service can be stringently maintained.
In the end, we would like to conclude by saying that the growing advancement in technology has significantly enhanced the level of competition in the marketplace.
Hence, it is very crucial for every business whether small or large either to embrace the technology or bear the risk of being left behind in the competition.
