Nowadays, the trend of cloud computing is growing so fast. There are public cloud and private cloud. This article will help you to know about top cloud computing services on the IBM platform.
What is cloud computing?
Traditional computing forces users to run the program through a server or a personal computer placed in close proximity, such as in the same building.
Cloud computing has 2 service models (product models): public cloud and private cloud.
Over the past few years, cloud computing has revolutionized the computing industry, fundamentally changing the way resources are used, the operating structure as well as the storage, distribution and information processing. Most of us have been using one or more cloud computing applications in our daily lives as well as in enterprise management.
IBM cloud has two main offerings:
The IaaS platform
The IaaS platform also has the ability to load balances to load workloads of applications on a variety of virtual servers, to increase the resilience and availability of applications. This feature also provides a virtual IP network connection to deliver connection requests to a host of other virtual application servers.
It can be said, IaaS bring many benefits for businesses. The first and most important is the significant cost savings. Instead of buying servers, increasing the data center floor area, network infrastructure and equipment, and managing and maintaining them, businesses simply need to buy resources.
In addition, the cost is only payable on the basis of consumed resources. In addition, businesses can share resources with other parties through the flexibility of sharing resources of the cloud server
SaaS (Software as a Service)
SaaS (Software as a Service) is a form of software transfer that allows access to data from any device with an internet connection and web browser settings. In this web-based model, software vendors carry out the task of storing and maintaining servers, databases, and scripts to form an application. This is a special improvement over the on-premise model because enterprises do not need to invest in large-capacity hardware to store software. The enterprise is not responsible for technical issues such as troubleshooting and maintenance of the system. SaaS providers will take care of that.In addition to allowing remote access to application software and data via the web, SaaS is also different from on-premise software in terms of cost. On-premise software is usually purchased through a perpetual license, meaning that the business will own the software. In addition, businesses pay between 15% and 20% of maintenance fees and monthly support fees. By contrast, SaaS allows the buyer to pay an annual or monthly subscription fee, which includes software licenses, support fees. The main advantage of SaaS is that it can flexibly scale the service to fit the needs of the business over time, thereby helping to save costs…
