End user not able to get Information about the technology and infrastructure. May be due to this reason it is called Cloud.

In the Cloud Computing, data belongs to user.

Focus on what you need done.

Accessible: You can retrieve more information as many parallel computers are running your application.

Programmable: Cloud’s computers must be programmed to automate the redistribution and load sharing.

Cloud Storage:

Multiple third party servers are used rather than on the traditional dedicated servers.

Virtual Servers: appears as if data stored in a particular place a specific name. But that place doesn’t exist in reality.

Storage location may be change time to time.

Cloud Services

Web based application or services offered via cloud computing.

Accessed by browser.

If PC crashes, it doesn’t affect the application or documents

Access from any where.

Document no longer machine-centric

Service Models

Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas)

Platform as a Service (Paas)

Software as a Service (Saas)

Network as a Service (Naas)

Advantage of Cloud Computing

Lower IT Infrastructure cost.

Improved performance

Fewer maintenance issues

Lower software cost.

Increased Data Safety.

Unlimited Data storage

Improved Performance.


Require constant internet connection.

Doesn’t work with low speed internet connection.

May be slower than access application on Desktop.

In the Cloud, if loses your data, then you’re may be screwed.
