Cloud Computing is a shared computing resource which uses an API (Application Programming Interface) to allow access to its virtualised service. Its infrastructure offers significant advantages for start-ups, SMB’s and enterprises alike. These are delivered by several unique features of cloud that are not found in other related technologies.
The most notable of these features is the scalability that cloud computing offers; providing compute capability on demand. Scaling automation provides the most agile management of the service possible and the end user receives a flexible distribution of computing resources. The responsibilities of cloud providers for the distribution and management of their services is set out in their SLA’s (Service Level Agreement).
As application loads increase, additional resources are made available. Additionally when loads decrease, the resources are matched to demand through automation.
Distribution and assignment of these resources is automated, thus increasing the speed and accuracy of resources made available for load spikes.
Due to the size of Cloud server farms, providers have a large amount of redundancy available to them which in turn translates as higher availability for the end user.
The consolidated IT infrastructure offered by cloud providers means they can manage costs without compromising data security for individual users.
Cloud service level agreements define policy of cost, delivery parameters and regional guarantees.
The virtualised environment of the cloud is harnessed through the use of an Application Programming Interface.
