What is cloud computing?

You must hear the term “cloud” a lot these days, and in many different forms, such as talking about cloud storage services, cloud music, cloud applications, and even cloud operating systems.

Whether on computers, tablets or smartphones, the “cloud” seems to follow you everywhere. So what is the cloud (in technical terms) and what is cloud computing everyone is talking about these days? We will try to answer this question in a simple way.

The simplified definition says: that cloud computing is the use of computing resources (hardware and software) via the Internet, provided to you in the form of a service.

h

What do we mean when we say provided to you as a service?

This means that you are using the service, without paying attention to how this service works, that is, without worrying - for example - about the servers that run the service, how they are connected to each other, how the network is set up between them, and the software installed on them.


But where did the term cloud come from to describe this type of service?

In the world of networking, engineers use the cloud to simplify and characterize complex infrastructures, to separate infrastructure that may include tens, hundreds, or thousands of servers, routers, network equipment, and software, and external devices that will treat that infrastructure (the cloud) as a single entity. These external devices may be your computer, phone, or tablet. 

What are the benefits of cloud computing compared to traditional computing?

Cloud computing allows you to access all your applications and services from anywhere and anytime over the Internet, because the information is not stored on your hard disk, but on the servers of the company providing the service.

  • Reducing costs for companies, as it is no longer necessary to buy the fastest or best computers in terms of memory or the highest in terms of hard disk space, but any regular computer and using any web browser can access the cloud services that the company uses (editing documents, storing files, photo editing, etc.). Companies no longer have to buy equipment such as expensive servers to provide email service to their employees, or huge storage units to back up company data and information.


  • Ensure that the service works permanently, as the company that provides the cloud storage service is committed to making sure that the service works around the clock in the best possible way. When you use a cloud storage service, your information is stored on more than one server to ensure that it is not lost, and the service provider is committed to fixing any emergency malfunctions as soon as possible. This saves you a lot of time and cost as a user or a company owner who is responsible for managing his own equipment and software.


  • Take advantage of the huge infrastructure provided by cloud services to conduct scientific tests and experiments. Some complex calculations take years to perform on regular computers, while companies such as Google and Amazon make their clouds of thousands of linked servers available to perform such calculations in minutes or hours.



What are the disadvantages of cloud computing?

Intuitively, cloud applications need an Internet connection, as your disconnection from the Internet will affect your ability to perform your work, but companies are starting to remedy this, and thanks to some modern HTML 5 and JavaScript technologies, it is possible to build web applications that can work without an Internet connection, and then synchronize with Connectivity is back, but we still need more time for these applications and technologies to develop further.


Security concerns: Some are afraid of putting all their information and files with companies providing cloud services. If the service is exposed to a successful hack, the hacker may be able to obtain users’ information, as if the company resorted to selling your information or benefiting from it in one way or another, this would be a real problem. The only guarantee for you is to turn to large companies with high reliability and a good reputation in this field. (But on the other hand, your private equipment and your computer are not immune from hacking, theft or loss. I think that cloud service companies are more secure to store and save information, but these concerns remain with some users and should be mentioned here).


Most cloud applications have not yet reached the level of traditional desktop applications, so far photo editing applications on the web have not reached levels comparable to, for example, the traditional Photoshop application, and document editing applications on the web have not reached the level of Microsoft Office, but they are gradually approaching this with the passage of years .


What is the future of cloud computing?

everything! The future of cloud computing for sure. Maybe not after a year, not two years, not five or even ten. But we will get to the point where all operating systems will be cloud based.

All operating systems will become fully or almost completely cloud-based.

You'll reach the point where you can run all your web applications, even the biggest games.

Cloud computing technologies are evolving rapidly, web applications are evolving rapidly, and internet speeds are improving rapidly. Soon, the cloud will overwhelm everything, perhaps closer than we think.


Thank You.
