Cloud Computing

  1. 1. Cloud Computing<br />
  2. 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. 3. There is a group of companies which host the cloud servers.<br /> They are paid for their resources<br />Includes and Google App Engine.<br />Infrastructure<br />
  4. 4. Computing platforms are provided as a service. Consumes cloud infrastructure to function.<br />Sustains cloud applications.<br />Platform<br />
  5. 5. <ul><li>Software as a service (SaaS) allows programs to run on a person’s computer without installation.</li></ul>Application<br />
  6. 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. 7. Cloud hosting is instant, and reactive to the amount of server space needed by a website.<br />Instantaneous<br />
  8. 8. A site owner pays for the amount of power that they consume, not the server itself.<br />Money Saving<br />
  9. 9. Supply of servers is easy to grow or shrink to match demand.<br />Scalability<br />
  10. 10. Hosting your own server.<br />Costs more money <br />Consumes more power<br />Requires maintenance<br />Alternative to Cloud Computing<br />
  11. 11. Cost-efficient<br />Doesn’t require as much hardware.<br />More energy efficient<br />Less chemical waste<br />Efficiency<br />
  12. 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. 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. 14. Do not have to worry about supporting complicated computer server software<br />No problem troubleshooting<br />Advantages for Businesses Pt 2 <br />
  15. 15. Serves more than 50,000 businesses<br />The software service provider handles all problems that would be associated with running a server.<br /><br />
  16. 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. 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. 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 />
  19. 19. Facebook<br />Flickr<br />Hulu<br />Youtube<br />Pandora<br />Examples<br />
  20. 20. Cloud computing is an up and coming way of hosting websites.<br />Indication of technological advancements to come.<br />Conclusion<br />
