What is Cloud Computing? And its example .

 You might have heard this word many times, but do you know what Cloud Computing is and why it is being heard so much these days.  As we know that computer network technologies have progressed a lot in the last few 20 years.

 Ever since the Internet (the most popular computer network) made its existence known, there has been a lot of advancement in the field of computer networks and especially a lot of research has been done in the fields of technologies like Distributed Computing and Cloud Computing.

 These technical terms: The concepts of both Distributed Computing and Cloud Computing are almost the same, there are some differences between the two.  So if you want to understand about Cloud Computing then it is necessary for you to understand Distributed Computing also.

 Global Industry Analysts say that this global cloud computing service market will become a business worth up to $327 billion by 2020.  In today’s era, almost all the companies are using Cloud Computing service, be it directly or indirectly.

 For example, whenever we use the service of Amazon or Google, we are storing all our data in the cloud.  If you use Twitter then you indirectly use cloud computing service.

 Both Distributed Computing and Cloud Computing are so popular because we needed better computing networks so that our data can be processed faster.  So today we will discuss what is Cloud Computing?  You will know about it completely in this article.

what is cloud computing ?

 If someone provides any service through Internet then it is called Cloud Computing.  This service can be anything such as Off Site Storage or computing resources. Or in other words, Cloud Computing is a style of computing in which massively scalable and flexible IT-related capabilities are provided as a service with the help of Internet Technologies.

 Facilities like infrastructure, platform, application and storage space are available in these services.  In this, users use the services as per their need and pay only for those services which they use.  For this they do not need to create their own infrastructure.

 Nowadays there is a lot of competition in the world and in such a situation people need service on the Internet all the time and that too without any delay.  If any application ever freezes then there is a lot of dissatisfaction among the people.  People want the service they need 24/7.

 To fulfill these requirements, we cannot rely on the old mainframe computing, that is why people used Cloud distributed computing technology to solve this problem.  So that big businesses can do all their work easily.

Examples of Cloud Computing :

 YouTube is a great example of cloud storage which hosts video files of millions of users.

 Picasa and Flickr host digital photographs of millions of users on their servers.

 Google Docs is another great example of cloud computing that allows users to upload their presentations, word documents and spreadsheets to its data servers.  Along with this, it also gives the option to edit and publish those documents.
