What is Cloud Computing and what benefits it has?

YEREVAN, Armenia - Feb. 11, 2022 - PRLog -- In simple words, cloud computing is the delivery of computing services — including servers, storage, databases, networking, software— over the Internet (aka "the cloud").

Organizations of every type, size, and industry are using cloud computing for a variety of use cases, such as data backup, disaster recovery, email, virtual desktops, software development and testing, and big data analytics.

So, instead of buying, owning, and maintaining physical data centers and servers, companies can access technology services on an as-needed basis from cloud providers.

The most popular examples of cloud computing are:

Software as a Service (SaaS): software that's available via a third-party over the internet

Platform as a Service (PaaS): hardware and software tools available over the internet

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): cloud-based services, pay-as-you-go for services such as storage, networking, and virtualization

Types of Cloud Computing

Users can choose public, private, or hybrid storage offerings, depending on security needs and other considerations.

Public cloud: all hardware, software, and other supporting infrastructure is owned and managed by the cloud provider (like Microsoft Azure)

Private cloud:  refers to any cloud solution dedicated for use by a single organization. In the private cloud, you're not sharing cloud computing resources with any other organization.

Hybrid cloud: refers to any cloud infrastructure environment that combines both public and private cloud solutions.

Top Benefits of Cloud Computing

Cost Savings

Organizations don't have to spend money buying and maintaining equipment. They don't have to invest in hardware, facilities, utilities, or building large data centers. On top of that, companies don't need large IT teams to handle cloud data center operations as they can rely on the expertise of their cloud providers.


Storing information in the cloud means that users can access it from anywhere with any device with just an internet connection. Cloud computing allows mobile access to corporate data via smartphones and devices. Thus, remote employees can easily access all cloud data.

Data Security

One of the major concerns of every business is the security of its data. Cloud offers many advanced security features that ensure data is securely stored and handled.

Data Loss Prevention

Storing your data in the cloud ensures that data is always available, even if your equipment like laptops or PCs is damaged. Cloud-based services provide quick data recovery for all kinds of emergency scenarios (from natural disasters to power outages).
