Cloud Computing Why we need Cloud Computing - Part 2

As we know by now, most organization across the world are getting on to the cloud computing wagon.

Why? There are several benefits to cloud computing that are quite simply hard to ignore :

  • Rapid Provisioning/Deployment

  • Reduced cost

  • Computing Cloud at pennies

  • Computing Clout at pennies

  • Unlimited Storage

  • Access to Skilled resources

  • Better use of in-house personnel

  • Scalability

  • High Availability and Redundancy

Why not Cloud Computing?

Massive computing power, unlimited (but not free!) storage, significant improvement in utilization of hardware and human resources at low costs.

What's not to like about cloud computing? While several companies have jumped on the cloud computing bandwagon, there have been several concerns voiced against cloud computing.

These concerns are mostly in the areas of security and privacy.

Cloud computing providers know this and understand that without stringent security and privacy measures, this model cannot survive.

At the same time, be aware that cloud computing shares characteristics with the following fundamentals :

  • Autonomic computing

  • Client-server model

  • Grid computing

  • Mainframe computer

  • Utility computing

  • Peer-to-peer

What is a cloud client?

A cloud client consists of computer hardware/software that depends on cloud computing for application delivery and that is in essence useless without it.

Cloud client is the definitive client computing solution which is used to restore the outdated computing model of unsecure, unreliable, un-green and exclusive PCs.
