Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) helps agencies
realize cost savings and efficiencies while modernizing
and expanding their IT capabilities.
Cloud-based infrastructure is rapidly scalable, secure, and
accessible over the Internet — you only pay for what you
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) serves as the foundation
layer for the other delivery models, and a lack of security
in this layer will certainly affect the other delivery models.
“In simple words, the Cloud refers to the process
of sharing resources (such as hardware,
development platforms and/or software) over the
internet. It enables On-Demand network access.
These resources are accessed mostly on a pay-per-
use or subscription basis.”
Cloud computing is a technology that uses the
internet and central remote servers to maintain data
Cloud computing is much more efficient computing
by centralizing storage, memory, and processing .
Data isn’t “chained” to one place; rather, it can be
accessed anywhere, from any medium.
Processor speed becomes less important then
internet connection speed.
Why do customers use the cloud?
Cloud computing allows consumers and businesses to
use applications without installation and access their
personal files at any computer with internet access.

Cloud Delivery Models
IaaS(Infrastructure – as- a- Service)
A. Iaas is a provision model in which an organization used to support
operations, including storage, hardware, servers and networking
B. The service provider owns the equipment and is responsible for running
and maintaining it .
C. The client typically pays on a per-use basis.
PaaS(Platform –as- a- Service)
A. PaaS is a way to rent hardware, operating systems, storage and
network capacity over the Internet.
B. Operating system features can be changed and upgraded frequently.
C. Initial and ongoing costs can be reduced while developing a software.
SaaS(Software –as- a- Service)
A. SaaS sometimes referred to as "software on demand," is software that
is deployed over the internet .
B. It is deployed to run behind a firewall on a local area network or
C. With SaaS, a provider licenses an application to customers either as a
service on demand, through a subscription, in a "pay-as-you-go"
D.This approach to application delivery is part of the utility computing
Understanding Security of Cloud
Security in cloud computing is a major concern. Data in
cloud should be stored in encrypted form.
Since all the data is transferred using Internet, data
security is of major concern in cloud. Here are key
mechanisms for protecting data mechanisms listed below:
Each component in Cloud infrastructure has its
drawbacks which might impact the whole Cloud’s
Cloud is a tradeoff between cost, security and privacy.
Change in trust boundaries leads to security and
