A lot of businesses and companies are highly depending on the large data and for them, data availability is everything. Companies which use large data sets for their business model or simply need a lot of data available 24×7 for management & servicing purposes, require an environment where the data is as safe as possible, available all the time.
Well, thanks to the modern technologies and the evolution of the internet & cyber world, always available data, backed up with ultimate security is easily available for everyone. With the appearance of Cloud Computing, now it is finally possible to store or even process large data in no time, access it from anywhere in the world and use it as you need, at very good prices for such great service.
Every day more and more businesses and companies start to use cloud computing services for their data transfers, storage and processing, to ensure they are on the top of their competitions and backed up by latest tech product. The question may arise, what is cloud computing and how it can benefit businesses, brands, companies, IT specialists and developers.
What is Cloud Computing?
In the modern tech world, cloud computing is a term used to describe a network of computers and servers connected with each other in the cloud, sharing same resources and data, creating big pool of powerful computing power. The pool is connected to the internet, so a client can send and receive data from any location and place where internet access is available.
Massive number of machines (computers & servers) are included in cloud computing network so combined computing power is huge, big enough to complete multiple really large operations at the same time.
How does Cloud Computing Work?
Every job received by cloud computing is handled by combined computing power, so it can be processed very fast without issues such as overloading. Each job only receives needed amount of cloud computing power to ensure there will be no wasted computing power. For this reason, cloud computing can be very cost effective compared to normal computing where all machines have to be enabled in case more computing power is needed.
In a cloud computing networks, allocated resources can be increased or decreased as required by the job, so on demand resources management makes it very flexible and cost effective service that can handle large amounts of data, receive, process and transfer it without overloading.
Why Cloud Computing is Secure and Always Available?
One of the reason why cloud computing has been so popular since its appearance and why it is becoming more used every day is its high security level and always availability. When you upload any data in the cloud computing network, you know it is safe and there is no way you will lose the data.
The reason why cloud computing is so safe is its technology side. Every data uploaded or transferred to cloud computing network is stored via combined computing power which means the data is available in the cloud, backed up by massive number of servers & computers which ensures data safety and prevents any data loss. In a typical data storing system, if a computer or server is damaged, all the data stored on it becomes unavailable and may loose forever if the disk containing data is heavily damaged.
In a high quality cloud computing network, all data is saved in the cloud, syncing in real time so even if one or several machines are damaged, the data is still safe, available and ready for usage as normal. As cloud computing networks usually include a huge number of machines connected with each other, sharing resources with one another, there is slightly less chance of machine getting damaged and there is no chance of data loss. Also, machines used in cloud computing are regularly monitored to ensure they work properly and they are placed in an environment which is suitable for such machines, environment which keeps cool and dry.
Who need Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is used by many different kinds of companies and brands, needed by many developers and development agencies.
Any brand or company which need to save large amount of data in a safe environment, access it anytime or process and transfer it, should use cloud computing. Developers who work on larger projects where big data is constantly used or data availability is important also use cloud computing.
