What is cloud computing?

We all heard about cloud, services deployed in cloud and different cloud deployment models, but do we really have a correct and clear understanding of what cloud is and what it delivers? How does it work? Why do we need cloud? We created a whitepaper that aims to provide answers to some of the questions you may have about cloud computing.

Reading different cloud computing definitions doesn’t really help to understand what it is. Most of them refer to cloud as “an evolving paradigm” or “a paradigm shift”, which is a clear indicator that what we call cloud computing is still a very recent phenomenon. When getting more familiar with the term, it is nothing else but a set of methods of IT infrastructure, applications and data being deployed not on-premise but remotely by your vendor.

We can see cloud computing as an innovation of hardware, software and data, working together and communicating with each other. Usually, organizations opt to implement cloud solutions in order to positively change the performance of their business. This whitepaper may help you decide which cloud solutions are suitable for your organization, whether you choose a cloud subscription, or migrate your existing on-premise solutions to cloud.

If you download our whitepaper, you will be able to find out more about:

  • Cloud service models and the difference between them
  • General cloud deployment models
  • Subscription types and how to manage them
  • Deploying cloud services
  • Common compliance issues for cloud subscriptions
