These easily accessible feature of cloud computing make it more popular and used all over the web which can be accessed anywhere and anytime. We also have different types of cloud computing services based on the service it provides (Chris Woodward, 2017).

Cloud Computing 4 Types of cloud computing: Infrastructure as a service: This service is provided where we buy access to the computer hardware through the internet, for examples servers which are used for data storage. Here, utility comes into picture as we pay for the service what we use. Web hosting is a simple example for the infrastructure as a service and is used very often (Chris Woodward, 2017). Software as a service: Here the complete application will be running on some other’s system. Google documents and the web based emails will be the best examples for the software as a service (Chris Woodward, 2017). Platform as a service:Here, the web applications will be developed at one location and it will be running on end-users system. For example, a website can be created at one place and it can be accessed from anywhere all over the world like Amazon (Chris Woodward, 2017). Merits of the cloud computing: Cost savings: Money can be saved by introducing cloud computing into one’s business as it has huge benefits. Security:Cloud computing offers full time security as it is its main responsibility. Flexibility:Cloud computing offers more flexible services as per the requirement. Mobility: Easily accessed through our mobile phones from any location all over the web. Insight:Tracking of the data can be maintained for the data in the cloud. Collaboration:Employees in a team can work very effectively as the data can be easily accessed. Quality assurance:All the documents in the cloud will be saved in one format and are maintained with at most quality. Disaster recovery:Cloud computing stores all the data very effectively in their services and can be retrieved as we like. Prevention of loss:Loss can be prevented to a large extent as the data resides in the cloud. Automated software updates:Most of the people have no time to update or install new software in their systems; here the cloud based applications will be installed and updated automatically on time when needed. Competitive edge: People who use cloud computing services are getting their services used on their fingertips when compared to people who get their services locally. Sustainable:This can be clearly explained as the hosting on cloud is more eco-friendly which results in less number of carbon footprints. Recommendations: Clear identification of the data and the data processing operations is required before passing the data into cloud (Gaeten Cordier, 2016).
As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
