Whenever you use an online application and tap into the shared data and processing resources, you deal with a cloud product
It can be any type of web software including a data storage service and an advanced platform filled with tools for development. Still, we can distinguish three major cloud product categories: Software as a Service (SaaS) - covers a range of online software applications of different complexity, Platform as a Service (PaaS) - supplies users with powerful resources, frameworks and tools designed for application development and deployment, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) - offers online access to an entire infrastructure with data storage, development platforms and applications. Depending on the hosting organization, cloud services can be private, public and hybrid.
Why is this solution best for you?
secure your organization
use cloud protection and save your data from accidental loss
stable and scalable software
sufficient resources will ensure your software can handle an increased load
get direct access to state-of-the-art technologies
a more cost-effective IT model
the fewer resources you consume and users your organization has, the less you will have to pay for cloud services
to create a remote workplace
ease of web implementation, access to the necessary resources and support of different types of devices simplify workforce distribution
What problems does DevOps help to solve?
no under- and overprovision of resources due to dynamic resource scaling
sufficient resources and advanced technologies make cloud applications stable and reliable
Optimized cost management
a pay-per-use model and complex support reduces licensing and maintenance costs, while the reliability of applications helps to avoid expensive downtime
cloud software provider ensures maximum safety and offers efficient disaster recovery tools
Another example is a software house that can enhance its work due to an IaaS and PaaS without costs for establishing and maintaining an entire infrastructure and annual licensing payments.
