The Goal Of Cloud Computing

Decent Essays

INTRODUCTION Cloud computing is an internet based computing that depends on sharing computing with other resources rather than local servers or personal devices to handle applications. Cloud computing has fundamentally changed the way people view computing resources; rather than being an important capital consideration (Navavati, M., Colp, P., Aiello, B., & Warefield, A. (2014)). Cloud computing offers many potential benefits to organizations by making information technology (IT) services available as a commodity. IT services are services provided by IT service provider. Such services includes storing, retrieving, transmitting, and manipulating data for businesses or organizations. BODY The goal of cloud computing is to apply traditional supercomputing, or high-performance computing power, normally used by military or research facilities, to perform tens of trillions of computations per second, in consumer-oriented applications such as financial portfolios, to deliver personalized information, to provide data storage or to power large, immersive computer games. When organizations contract for cloud services, such as applications, software, data storage, and processing capabilities, they can improve their efficiency and their ability to respond more quickly and reliably to their customers’ needs. At the same time, there are risks to be considered, including maintaining the security and privacy of systems and information, and assuring the wise expenditure of IT resources.
