What is the Cloud?

Cloud is the on-demand availability of computing as a service. Offering computing resources as a service over the internet. “Cloud” eliminates the need for traditional computers (in your own offices) and avoids having to buy, configure, or manage computing resources.

What's included typically?

Cloud computing generally makes reference to a three tiered architectural computing model or cloud stack that is inclusive of SaaS (software as a service), PaaS (platform as a service) and IaaS (infrastructure as a service) - these are delivered remotely to customers over the internet

How is it purchased?

Cloud computing can be purchased in various ways (subscribing monthly, quarterly, or annually) from a variety of cloud solution providers or even hosted internally on a private cloud. Subscribers of Cloud Computing get to pick what they need and when they need it depending on their business at a given point in time. 

What are the benefits of cloud computing?

Customers who subscribe to cloud computing do so to reduce the IT service expenditures for their organisations and to gain access to more agile and flexible enterprise level computing services, in the process. 

Cloud computing purchasing by organizations has increased in recent years, this is due to the promise of inbuilt efficiency and time/money savings of this computing model. This can be very tempting to organisations with limited IT staff resources, exponential growth and/or limited IT budgets. Cloud computing usually offers operational and administrative savings over the traditional model of on-premise solutions. 

What are the disadvantages of cloud computing?

1. The risk of low quality service delivery from a cloud provider. Like any service provider of essential services, picking a wrong cloud computing service provider can be detrimental. This is because relying on a third party for cloud SaaS, PaaS and/or IaaS solutions from a single vendor directly effects the delivery of critical services for the organisation. 

2. It takes time and effort to properly assess the scalability, availability and flexibility of the cloud solutions that an organisation plans to adopt -and it is critical to do this correctly. Also assessing the reliability of the cloud solution provider(s) that their organisation plans to engage with. 


Which cloud fits my business needs?

Cloud computing is seen by many organisations as a better solution for them instead of large capital investments in software and IT infrastructure for some or all of their IT services. 

However, a cloud feasibility assessment completed for your organisation is critical to ensure the selection of the proper solution that meets the goals of your organisation. Assessing which cloud computing model to use (public, private or hybrid) is one of the outcomes of a cloud feasibility assessment. A well conducted cloud feasibility assessment can also deliver migration requirements, helping you assess the cloud solutions your business should consider for implementation and the size the the change / transition.

What other computing services can it offer?

Cloud computing also extends to other types of IT as a service such as; back-up as a service, storage as a service, databases as a service, security as a service and more.
