Introduction to cloud computing

Cloud computing is when you access computing services—like servers, storage, networking, software over the internet (“the cloud”) from a provider like Azure. For example, instead of storing personal documents and photos on your personal computer’s hard drive, most people now store them online: that’s cloud computing.

Cloud computing platforms, like Azure, tend to be less expensive and more secure, reliable, and flexible than on-premises servers. With the cloud, equipment downtime due to maintenance, theft, or damage is almost non-existent. You can scale your compute and storage resources up or down almost instantly when your needs change on Azure.

Also, you typically pay only for the services you use, which provides a level of convenience and cost-control that’s almost impossible to achieve with on-site infrastructure.

 



Cloud Computing Advantages

Lower cost

Cloud computing eliminates the expense of setting up and running on-site datacenters, which often have added costs such as employing and buying and maintaining land, building, and computer hardware. The cloud allows businesses to access the computer resources they need in real time to match their business needs on demand.

Increased productivity

More efficiently develop and manage your applications with nearly unlimited cloud computing resources. Cloud providers continuously update their datacenter networks with the latest-generation hardware, providing you with fast, efficient computing resources that never go obsolete and would be more costly to implement in a single datacenter.

Higher security

Security is a key focus of cloud providers, who invest huge sums of money into securing their infrastructure. Cloud providers typically also offer a broad set of policies, compliance, technologies, and controls that strengthen your security posture by protecting your data, apps, and infrastructure from threats.

Global Scale

Cloud computing runs on data centers around the world, providing overall resiliency and reliability by allowing your data to be backed up in more than one geographic location. This also allows your IT resources to be delivered from specific geographic locations when required.
