RE: ENGLISH REPORT (What is Cloud computing?)
Dear Ms. Dimple Chugani,
Please find enclosed my report entitled “ What is Cloud computing?”.
I trust you will find the report has covered the question in a comprehensive fashion.
Should there be any questions regarding the report, please do not hesitate to ...view middle of the document...
The characteristic of clouds includes an in-depth analysis of the technology in which they are performed on various infrastructure models. The advent of cloud computing is found to be flexible, effective and convenient for various users through different groups such as government organisations, education facilities, and business organisations. Cloud computing also provides creative business framework for organisations to adopt technological services without payment in advance. Despite the potential benefits achieved from Cloud computing, there are many deterrents of cloud computing such as availability, reliability and security issues which impede the widespread use of cloud.
The above questions are the basic fundamental principles in the study of Information Technology. All first year students enrolling in the Faculty of Information Technology in most Universities find it is imperative to know these concepts, as they are the building blocks towards understanding the fundamentals of Information Technology. I hope to be studying Information Technology at the University of Newcastle next year and for this reason I chose the topic in question.
Computers have become an essential part of our life; we need them everywhere, business, research, education, and many others.
Since the usage of computers have increased dramatically, the need for computing resources also goes up. Back in the early days where there was no cloud computing, people had to rely on software, hardware and corporate server rooms to run their applications and to keep their data that have always been expensive and inconvenient. When they come to failure as machine problems, hard drive crashes, and software bugs, this might become serious problems for users to overcome. But with the advent of Clouds, programs and data are being swept away from personal computers and installed in “ Compute Cloud ” which can prevent the accidental loss of data and provide ubiquitous access to all over the world.
So, what is cloud computing exactly? As there is a deficiency of precise scientific definition for this, a comprehension of cloud calculating necessitates a comprehension of other keystones compactly connected to this. The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has stated an explanation which summarises Cloud Computing as: “A model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction” (Mell & Grance, 2011, p. 6).
In theory, cloud computing eliminates the need to install software or hardware lowering in cost and providing portability and usability. Knorr and Gruman stated “people can now access the information they need from any device with an...
