  • 1. Cloud Computing<br />
  • 2. Cloud computing is a relatively new way of hosting websites from serves which do not belong to the site owner. <br />Allows users to focus on their website rather than their server capability. <br />What is Cloud Computing?<br />
  • 3. There is a group of companies which host the cloud servers.<br /> They are paid for their resources<br />Includes Salesforce.com and Google App Engine.<br />Infrastructure<br />
  • 4. Computing platforms are provided as a service. Consumes cloud infrastructure to function.<br />Sustains cloud applications.<br />Platform<br />
  • 5. <ul><li>Software as a service (SaaS) allows programs to run on a person’s computer without installation.</li></ul>Application<br />
  • 6. Access to software is network-based. <br />Servers are at central locations rather than at every customer’s site.<br />Updates are central. Site users do not need to patch/install updates themselves.<br />Characteristics of Software as a Service<br />
  • 7. Cloud hosting is instant, and reactive to the amount of server space needed by a website.<br />Instantaneous<br />
  • 8. A site owner pays for the amount of power that they consume, not the server itself.<br />Money Saving<br />
  • 9. Supply of servers is easy to grow or shrink to match demand.<br />Scalability<br />
  • 10. Hosting your own server.<br />Costs more money <br />Consumes more power<br />Requires maintenance<br />Alternative to Cloud Computing<br />
  • 11. Cost-efficient<br />Doesn’t require as much hardware.<br />More energy efficient<br />Less chemical waste<br />Efficiency<br />
  • 12. Came from how people referred to the internet as a cloud of information.<br />Grew in popularity as <br />people became more <br />focused on sustainability<br />and efficiency.<br />How did Cloud Computing Start?<br />
  • 13. Outsources information to a cloud. <br />Business saves on:<br />System Design<br />Installation<br />Maintenance<br />Remote Accessability<br />Advantages for Businesses<br />
  • 14. Do not have to worry about supporting complicated computer server software<br />No problem troubleshooting<br />Advantages for Businesses Pt 2 <br />
  • 15. Serves more than 50,000 businesses<br />The software service provider handles all problems that would be associated with running a server.<br />Salesforce.com<br />
  • 16. Data is stored on third party systems.<br />Possibly less secure than hosting your own server.<br />Inaccessible without internet.<br />Rely on third party to maintain servers.<br />Inaccessible if their servers are down.<br />Cons of Cloud Computing<br />
  • 17. Cloud computing allows users to store not just websites, but other information too.<br />Examples: <br />Facebook photos<br />Dropbox<br />Google Docs<br />Cloud Storage<br />
  • 18. Allows users to backup data off of their computers.<br />Ideal for sharing files with other people. They are accessible without downloading anything onto your hard drive.<br />Cloud Storage Cont.<br />
