Cloud computing is the on-demand availability of computer resources over the internet(cloud) without any direct active management by the user, i.e., resources like server, storage, database, software’s..Etc is shared using cloud (over internet) to end users.
Benefits of Cloud Computing for Remote workers
An organization having its own datacentre has to take some resources offline for regular service maintenance. On the other hand cloud computing gives employees 24/7 access to resources that they need to get their job done. Employees working from home may need resources from their work place, With Cloud Computing all the resources can be shared to employees to do their job.
Cloud computing is ideal for administrative teams that cannot access a physical location, such as a server room, or that are spread out across locations. Cloud computing enable the administrator’s to scale the resources according to the increase in employees or according to the requirements of the employees.
Scalability in cloud computing can be described as Vertical and horizontal scaling.
Vertical scaling refers to adding CPU, memory or I/O resources to the server. i.e., increasing the capacity for existing hardware or software by adding resources
Horizontal scaling refers to adding more servers to meet your needs. i.e., adding additional instances instead of moving to a larger instance size.
On-premise data servers can be expensive for business to purchase and maintain. As companies are looking for inexpensive way to store their resources rather than spending on their own data servers, cloud computing steps in as an in-expensive way to meet their needs.
The main benefit of cloud computing is that it is built with keeping cyber security in mind. Cloud computing give users the ability to designate security measures, such as setting up user permissions, encrypting data, and other measures to prevent security threats. Administrators can also set identity and an access policy to all individual employees to ensure what they can and cannot access.
