Cloud computing is changing the way of conducting business, the work of departments and the principles of cooperation between IT and business. How does it work?

Cloud Computing is a model of IT environment management using solutions borrowed from the ideology of Internet solutions. The Cloud Computing philosophy is to transfer the entire burden of IT services (data, software or computer performance) to the server, while enabling permanent access through client computers. This way, their safety does not depend on what happens to the client’s computer and the speed of processes results from the power of the server. You can simply log in from any computer with Internet access and start enjoying the benefits of Cloud Computing.

 

There are several types of Cloud Computing solutions depending on server location and the processing method:

 

Private Cloud – is a solution that uses the IT infrastructure and resources of the client. It allows for the introduction of an internal clearance process with the use of resources, while ensuring high flexibility and efficiency. This solution is mainly used as a medium for testing and development practices. Additionally, Private Cloud allows you to access and manage multiple platforms simultaneously.

 

Hybrid Cloud – is a solution for clients waiting to cover short-term surplus of demand for processing power in operational cycles. Until now, this issue was solved by purchasing additional computational units and using them only periodically. With the Hybrid Cloud solution, you can buy computing power on remote servers only when it is really necessary and in the quantities required.

 

Public Cloud – some clients are able to use a different model of IT services delivery. With operations on several markets at the same time, their priority is the immediate data sharing with clients around the world. In this case, the service is delivered in a form that is fixed and dimensioned in terms of functionality and conditions related to the provision of the service itself. Specification of the resources and configuration of the IT infrastructure is invisible for the end user; the location of the service itself is often unknown. This however does not matter, because the quality is determined by the functionality and availability of services. This offer is particularly valuable for small and medium-sized enterprises.
