Read on to find out all you need to know about DC Encompass cloud infrastructure services.
What is Cloud Infrastructure?
No doubt cloud computing model has changed how enterprises manage information, application, and system. Instead of bearing the total cost of setting up on–premise IT infrastructures, organizations can now take advantage of cloud computing to access cloud storage facilities and reduce operating costs. All they need to do is pay rent to third–party cloud service providers and have their business data properly stored in a safe and secure environment.
Ideally, cloud infrastructure consists of several hardware and software components needed to deliver cloud services to various organizations. The physical component of cloud infrastructures include servers, data storage, and network equipment. It also includes other hardware abstraction layers that give room for virtualization and help organizations to cut down on operation costs.
Components of cloud infrastructure
There are several components of cloud infrastructure that plays a huge role in helping organizations deploy applications to the cloud. These components include:
Cloud resources are delivered to users via the internet. Due to this, third–party service providers maintain networking infrastructure that makes it possible to store and process data in the cloud. These networking infrastructures include switches, load balancing, routers, wirings, among other devices.
A server is a device programmed to provide services to the user. Third–party cloud service providers also have web servers that store HTML files, file servers for large information, mail servers for emails, among other types of servers.
Cloud storage allows organizations to store and manage their data offsite in a secure location, known as a data center. These cloud storage devices provided by third–party firms process business data that can be accessed remotely by employees via the internet.
Virtualization is the most important aspect of cloud infrastructure. It removes data storage and computing power from hardware and allows users to interact with cloud infrastructure through a graphical user interface.
Types of Cloud Architecture
When it comes to cloud migration, there are three primary architecture models; each of these models offer diverse benefits. They include:
Here, the cloud infrastructure is dedicated only to a single client. This implies that resources can only be shared internally. One of the most significant benefits of opting for a private cloud is that it provides a high level of security and a complete sense of ownership.
Public cloud is the most popular cloud architecture you will find today. It involves hiring the services of third–party cloud providers who offer cloud services to multiple clients at the same time. One major reason organizations choose public cloud is the low cost of computing resources. With public clouds, you only pay for services that you need while enjoying a high level of data security and scalability. On the downside, public cloud creates privacy concerns for organizations with highly sensitive data.
Hybrid cloud combines the security of private clouds and the low costs of public clouds in a separate but connected system. For instance, organizations that deal with highly sensitive data may store their data in a private cloud while hosting the less sensitive one in a public cloud to reduce costs.
What are the Cloud Infrastructure Delivery Models?
Public cloud providers deliver cloud infrastructure services using three delivery models. These include:
SaaS delivery model is one of the commonly used types of cloud service. It eradicates the need for manual data storage on a local hard disk and provides a web–based portal where all data and applications are saved. With SaaS, businesses can deliver improved customer experience and take off large IT burdens from their hands. At the same time, the cloud vendor provides offerings like operating systems, data, middleware, storage network, and virtualization.
With IaaS, third–party cloud service firms provide data storage, virtualization, and networking services while the business is required to make available the software on which these technologies run. This software includes applications, middleware, data, and operating systems.
