What is Cloud Computing?



Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of IT resources such as compute, databases, and storage via the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing. Learn more:

Instead of buying, owning, and maintaining physical data centers and servers, you can access a wide range of technology services on an as-needed basis from a cloud provider like Amazon Web Services. Organizations of every type, size, and industry are using the cloud for a wide variety of use cases, such as data backup, disaster recovery, email, virtual desktops, software development and testing, big data analytics, and customer-facing web applications. Explore how your business can use cloud computing to become more agile, reduce costs, instantly scale, and deploy globally in minutes.

  1. TIL the cloud symbol was used to represent networks of computing equipment in the original ARPANET by as early as 1977, and the CSNET by 1981—both predecessors to the Internet itself. References to "cloud computing" appeared as early as 1996 in a Compaq internal document. https://trend.financesheff.site/today-i-learned/til-the-cloud-symbol-was-used-to-represent-networks-of-computing-equipment-in-the-original-arpanet-by-as-early-as-1977-and-the-csnet-by-1981-both-predecessors-to-the-internet-itself-referenc/

  2. SOMEBODY ASKED ME WHAT IS CLOUD COMPUTING..

    CLOUD COMPUTING IS THE GAME-CHANGER IN THE IT INDUSTRY . MY ELDER SON IS IN THIS BUSINESS

    CLOUD IS JUST A METAPHOR FOR THE INTERNET. … WHEN YOU STORE DATA ON OR RUN PROGRAMS FROM THE HARD DRIVE, THAT'S CALLED LOCAL STORAGE AND COMPUTING.

    CLOUD COMPUTING IS THE PRACTICE OF USING A NETWORK OF REMOTE SERVERS HOSTED ON THE INTERNET TO STORE, MANAGE, AND PROCESS DATA, RATHER THAN A LOCAL SERVER OR A PERSONAL COMPUTER.

    THREE DECADES AGO, I WAS SHIP CAPTAIN IN A US READY RESERVE FLEET MERCHANT COMPANY .. THEY HAD SUCH DEEP POCKETS THAT THE GOTRA SUPERINTENDENT WOULD COME ON THE SHIP AND TELL " CAPTAIN, DONT BE SO THRIFTY. I AM AUTHORISING YOU TO SPEND 10,000 USD TO BUY PAINTINGS FOR THE SHIPs ALLEYWAYS"

    AND KNEE JERK I WOULD REPLY BACK– "NO, I WONT ALLOW MY SHIP TO LOOK LIKE A WHOREHOUSE.. THIS IS A TANKER . MINDSETS ARE IMPORTANT "..

    THE COMPANY HAD PAID GOOD MONEY TO BUY A SOFTWARE CALLED ULYSSES.. IT WAS LYING UNUSED.. I THOUGHT ABOUT A REVOLUTIONARY CONCEPT CALLED "VIRTUAL TEAMING".. I HAD A HARD TIME MAKING CUNTS UNDERSTAND WHAT I MEANT..

    MY COMPANY THINKERS CRIED " AS USUAL CAPT VADAKAYIL IS MAKING AN ASS OUT OF US.. HE KNOWS THAT WE CANT OUT THINK HIM"..

    SO I WROTE THE POST BELOW.. THEN TEN YEARS AGO I PUT IT AS A BLOGPOST — WORD BY WORD..

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.com/2010/11/virtual-teaming-capt-ajit-vadakayil.html

    MY VIRTUAL TEAMING CONCEPT WAS PRIMARILY TO BUST THE SILO MENTALITY -WHICH IS A DETERRENT TO TEAM WORK DYNAMICS.

    THIS IS EXACTLY THE CONCEPT USED IN CLOUD COMPUTING WHICH CAME TWO DECADES LATER ..

    TODAY CLOUD COMPUTING IS THE LATEST BUZZ .. IF YOU HAVE CLOUD COMPUTING SKILLS , YOU ARE A BLUE EYED BOY..

    The US Department of Defense (DoD) has its critical data hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

    Microsoft’s cloud offering Azure hosts the business data of most of the Fortune 500 companies.

    TODAY THE CLOUD COMPUTING MARKET IS NEARING 100 BILLION USD..

    FOR CLOUD COMPUTING TO SUCCEED IT HAS TO TAKE HELP FROM AI.. IN FACT CC AND AI ARE LIKE TWO POLES OF THE SAME MAGNET..

    WITH CYBER SECURITY AND CLOUD COMPUTING GOING HAND-IN-HAND, IT WILL BECOME EASIER FOR ORGANIZATIONS TO COMBAT CYBER-ATTACKS AND ENSURE THE SAFETY OF DATA..

    AS THE NUMBER OF CLOUD IMPLEMENTATIONS INCREASE AND BUSINESSES START MOVING THEIR WORKLOADS TO THE CLOUD, CYBER SECURITY AUTOMATICALLY BECOMES A PART OF THE PROCESS TO SECURE THE DATA AND MAKE IT EASILY ACCESSIBLE..

    OUR INDIAN EDUCATION SYSTEM IS STILL IN THE DINOSAUR AGE..

    PRAKASH JAVEDEKAR DID NOTHING AS A EDUCATION MINISTER IN MODIs FIRST TERM.. NOW HE IS I&B MINISTER CUM ENVIRONMENT MINISTER..

    PRAKASH JAVEDEKAR THRIVES BECAUSE HE IS THE MIDDLEMAN BETWEEN MODI AND HIS JEWISH MASTERS WHO RUN THE DEEP STATE ..

  3. The video tries to explain the 'cloud computing' by unfortunately merging two definitions, i.e. 'cloud computing' and 'cloud computing infrastructure', but finally fails to present the reality of the 'cloud computing' syntagm.

    The 'cloud computing' syntagm is a 3D model clearly defined and standardized by NIST in the document – https://nvlpubs.nist.gov/nistpubs/Legacy/SP/nistspecialpublication800-145.pdf

    The same document defines and explains what is a 'cloud computing infrastructure' vs 'cloud computing' model.

    Moreover, the 'cloud computing' syntagm is directly linked to 'fog computing' and 'edge computing' syntagm concepts.

    The NIST cloud computing standards roadmap is presented in the NIST publication SP 500-291 – https://tsapps.nist.gov/publication/get_pdf.cfm?pub_id=909024

    while for the US Government there are other standards: US Government Cloud Computing Technology Roadmap NIST SP 500-293 – https://www.nist.gov/publications/us-government-cloud-computing-technology-roadmap-volume-i-high-priority-requirements.

  4. Wenn ihr DevOps lernen wollt, dann ermpfehle ich den folgendes:

    “Projekt Phoenix” ist der Roman über IT und den Ansatz zur Prozessverbesserung DevOps, 376 Seiten aus dem Jahre 2013.

    Für mich war “Projekt Phoenix” das erste Buch das mir fachliche Inhalte leicht verständlich schilderte und zwar in Form eines Romans. Das Buch sollten in allen Unternehmen als Pflichtlektüre verteilt werden um IT ganzheitlich verständlich zu machen.

    Ob als IT-Mitarbeiter, Berater oder Vertriebler der IT-Branche. Dieses Buch ist eine Empfehlung für jeden:

  5. Worries, possibly internet access speeds, security and reliability, plus if there is possibly high demand, waiting in a que for cpu cycles to become available. I feel.

  6. Hello. Usability is close to zero, now it has a negative value.
    I have a simple task, I need to be able to work anywhere where there is Internet, and any computer, in the video editing program Apple FCPX over the Internet. The original video files must also always be available.
    Why are cloud services not in demand?
    Imagine that you came to the store to buy ice cream. It's easy. You go to any store, pick up ice cream, go to the checkout, pay, and that's it!
    Now imagine that you are buying ice cream, but this process has a negative usability value.
    You wanted to eat ice cream. First you need to study biology, biochemistry, it is desirable to obtain certificates. Then you need to go outside and find a place where ice cream can be. In short, you will need to study the history of mankind, General psychology and social psychology, study architecture (urban structure) and You are almost there. Here you see a store that clearly has what You need. Go inside and there are a lot of pointers, instructions, strategies about how the economic system works, and You need to start by studying its history, then pass a profotbor to determine what exactly in the production of dairy products You need to start studying and what research to produce. After that, it is necessary to study the production of agricultural products, and especially the production of fermented milk products. Study the history of freezing device manufacturing technology. Learn the history and technology of ice cream production. In General, all the work done, almost half of it will bring You closer to the frozen dessert, because the most interesting things are still ahead.
    Example with buying ice cream, in order to understand what is really clouds, a cloud computer is now not usability at all.

  7. I wish technology advances so we can use cloud services as personal computers. I personally got a laptop with a barely 128GB SSD I'm forced to use an external hard drive but if cloud existed that would make everyone's life real easier. Yeah you can back up your data to cloud services as Dropbox. But I mean use cloud as a computer. Not for data storage.
