WHAT IS THE CLOUD?
Cloud computing means sharing resources online when you need them. These resources can be different things like infrastructure, software, platforms, storage, databases, and development environments.
Virtualization lets one server run multiple programs, important for cloud computing that saves money by not buying hardware. Cloud computing also moves from upfront costs (“CAPEX”) to ongoing expenses (“OPEX”). In short, virtualization does different things with one server while cloud computing saves money and innovates ways of working.
Cloud providers have many computers working together, making it so that multiple customers can use the same software without having to buy and maintain their own copies. This saves money for businesses, especially small to medium-sized ones, since they can use expensive programs they couldn’t afford on their own.
BENEFITS OF CLOUD COMPUTING
Cloud computing is a cheaper option, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. With cloud computing, there are fewer initial costs and investments in hardware, software and maintenance. This is because resources are shared with other users. It’s a choice between paying for what you use (operational expenses) or spending money upfront (capital expenses).
Cloud technology allows businesses to access applications and services they may not have been able to afford before. This opens up opportunities for businesses to innovate and stay competitive.
SaaS is better than doing things yourself. SaaS products are usually more secure and reliable compared to small businesses managing things on their own.
As more people work on-the-go, the cloud makes it easy for your staff to work from different places. They can use programs on a client’s site or look at projects from anywhere in the world. It’s a flexible way to get work done!

COMMON CLOUD TERMS
SERVER AND APPLICATION VIRTUALIZATION
Virtualization is the important technology behind cloud computing. It helps save time and money by improving the availability of applications and reducing operational costs and support needs. Although virtualization and cloud computing are related, they are different types of IT solutions.
DATA CENTER AND HYBRID-CLOUD
Companies want to get more out of their data centers. By using virtualization, they can make things more efficient and get more use from the equipment they already have. They can also move some services to the cloud instead of buying new equipment. This helps them be more flexible in setting up applications quickly.
TYPES OF CLOUD SERVICES
SaaS is like renting software from the internet. PaaS lets you make your own applications. IaaS gives you a base to work from and you only pay when you need it.
