Cloud Computing Models

| DataBase, News, Software | No Comments

There’s a lot of discussion about all sorts of issues related to cloud computing. In a nutshell, cloud computing as a whole encompasses any subscription-based service that offers computing in the cloud, or on the Web, if you prefer that nomenclature. This can include anything from a software application, computing platform or infrastructure solution. There are three major cloud-computing models: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

This new technology seems to be picking up where Web 2.0 left off, and taking it to the next level. The cloud computing space is picking up steam for a few reasons. It costs less to develop and deploy cloud-based solutions. The cloud offers a new level of unprecedented computing accessibility and, as budgets shrink on both personal and business levels, data management is proving to be most efficiently and cost-effectively handled in the cloud.

This will affect Web users and the world of computing in profound ways in the coming years. Namely, computing solutions will become more accessible, and as a result, the Web will become a more powerful and integrative tool for everyday life. The key to understanding this major shift is first understanding the basics of cloud computing. Let’s take a look at the three most popular service models in more detail.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

SaaS providers make up one of the largest group of cloud service providers in the industry, mainly because SaaS services are among the easiest to deploy. In a nutshell, as opposed to simply downloading a heavy-duty application to a physical storage device, SaaS providers offer users access to applications on a hosted server. This means either using the application inside a Web browser, or within a lightweight, downloaded application. This can include anything from a customer relationship management (CRM) application to cloud-based music software. In the future, SaaS applications will become more integrated with mobile devices.

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)

The IaaS model is perhaps the most complex of the cloud computing models. As medium and large enterprise-level organizations used to use dedicated data centers, many are turning to IaaS providers to cut infrastructure-related costs. IaaS is the basis by which all other cloud computing models operate. There are various platforms—including vCloud Director and OpenStack–used to control cloud instances, growing servers and bridging cloud services, IaaS providers offer a pool of resources relating to infrastructural needs – physical servers, virtual servers, load balancers, etc., — from an offsite data center. The customer then downloads all the necessary operating systems, and applications necessary for operation.

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

PaaS solutions are more geared towards developers. A PaaS provider will furnish the customer with a computing platform that includes an operating system, execution environment and a database and Web server. This is to ensure quick and easy application deployment within the cloud. This also provides a cost-effective way for Web developers to deploy their software solutions without buying or purchasing heavyweight hardware and software solutions usually associated with application deployment.

 

Cloud Hosting: A Utility Service

| News | No Comments

Businesses are being benefited immensely through cloud hosting. One can speedily build systems by using cloud hosting and add the memory keeping CPU free from the whole process. If you compare the efficiency of cloud hosting with that of dedicated hosting servers, used earlier, then you can find it much efficient than earlier one, in most of the cases. It can be experienced individually by using cloud servers if you are usual user of web hosting servers and assess the efficiency of this new technique through its performance. Cloud server also allows you to control your systems through your interface as well as supply, observe and control your virtual machines and resources from a central point. Thus cloud server allows you to provide a user friendly platform that can be managed efficiently.

Applications of cloud hosting

Cloud hosting can also download applications that can be used in enhancing business activities this function is known as ‘software as a service’ (SaaS). It enables you to download any application from the web browsers through cloud servers. You can approach to your applications, any type, from your server while you are not at your system, from anywhere else through any computer through the cloud server. You can download it, work on it and save the changes on cloud server and go away. This feature of cloud hosting empowers the employees to work for their organizations even not being present on the site. Such services of cloud servers can also be carried out through mobile phones of latest generation.

Security with cloud hosting

The cloud hosting can be used safely if you connect your cloud servers with your own network as it will separate it from the traffic of other resources and networks. You should also use encrypted secure connection to access your systems and application through cloud server so that you can be sure for your data not being overseen by others. You must also ensure the availability of backup on your system before using applications on cloud server so that it can be recovered in case you have lost it in transit.

Cost effectiveness

Cloud hosting is also a cost effective service for the companies whose business is based more on IT sector as it uses lesser amount of server power, electricity, server hardware, network equipment, security devices, IT support etc. used in the processing the websites.

Thus, cloud hosting is a useful device for the business sector as it can help in promoting them to a great extent.

Web Development Tools

One of the contributing factors to web development’s rapid growth has been the application of its free to use tools. These tools are; Linux, MySQL, PHP and Apache, together they are commonly referred to as LAMP. The availability of these tools has meant that people all over the world have been able to set up websites, and with it the popularity of web development has soared. The aforementioned tools are discussed in much detail below;

 

Linux

Linus is a multilingual web development tool that is mainly targeted at servers, desktops and embedded devices. This computer operating system is open source based and can be useful in a number of computer hardware like; tablet computers, desktops, mainframe computers, handsets and routers. This rocket-fast operating system has the ability to power the ten quickest supercomputers in the world. The use of this facility in commercial and home computers has been rising and various enterprises and governments are developing their own Linux systems.

 

Apache

This tool was authored by one, Robert McCool and his Apache Software Foundation developers and was initially released in the market in 1995. This web development was pivotal in the initial development of World Wide Web. Just before the turn of the century (1999), it became the first server to top the one hundred million website mark. It was also the first real answer and alternative to the dominance of Netscape Communications Corporations. Today it can stand toe to toe with any of its rivals in terms of performance and functionality. This tool can be used in various operating systems like; GNU, Novell NetWare, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, Microsoft Windows and eComStation. It is estimated that Apache serves 63 per cent of all the websites in the world, and when you count the busiest websites it performs even better at 66 per cent.

 

MySQL


MySQL is a subsidiary of Oracle and was officially released in to the market in May of 1995 and is available in English. B y definition this tool is a relational database system and powers a server that provides much user access to numerous databases. Even though this tool -just like the others- is free, you can opt for its paid-for editions, which as you would expect offer better performance and functions. Some of the applications that use this tool are;

 

  • Joomla
  • MyBB
  • WordPress
  • Drupal
  • phpBB

MySQL is a central cog in LAMP application software and is the preferred web development tool in some of the most popular websites like Facebook, Google, Nokia.com, Flickr and YouTube.

 

PHP

This tool made its bow in 1995 and is owned by the PHP group. It is a general-usage server and its intended result is to develop dynamic and impressive web pages. This tool is inbuilt in well over twenty million web sites in the world as well as in over one million web servers. This free software is marketed under the PHP license.
