Enterprise Cloud Services/Management
Services made available to users on demand via the Internet from a cloud computing provider's servers as opposed to being provided from a company's own on-premises servers. Cloud services are designed to provide easy, scalable access to applications, resources and services, and are fully managed by a cloud services provider.
A cloud service can dynamically scale to meet the needs of its users, and because the service provider supplies the hardware and software necessary for the service, there’s no need for a company to provision or deploy its own resources or allocate IT staff to manage the service. Examples of cloud services include online data storage and backup solutions, Web-based e-mail services, hosted office suites and document collaboration services, database processing, managed technical support services and more.
Cloud computing is a type of computing that relies on sharing computing resources rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications. In cloud computing, the word cloud (also phrased as "the cloud") is used as a metaphor for "the Internet," so the phrase cloud computing means "a type of Internet-based computing," where different services - such as servers, storage and applications -- are delivered to an organization's computers and devices through the Internet.
Cloud computing is comparable to grid computing, a type of computing where unused processing cycles of all computers in a network are harnesses to solve problems too intensive for any stand-alone machine. Cloud computing has become a key component of a successful business and IT strategy. It offers exciting benefits including reduced IT costs and maintenance, on-demand and self-service capabilities, and rapid deployment and scalability to name just a few.
The cloud, however, can also present confusion and complexity:
- What cloud is right for me – public, private, or hybrid?
- Which applications should I migrate to the cloud?
- How much will it cost and how do I get the most return?
- How do I manage, regulate, and centralize control?
- How do I ensure successful user adoption?
