Cloud computing service provides IT infrastructure, platform and software services through a shared network, which can be accessed by businesses remotely via Internet. Cloud computing not only helps enterprises in reducing costs by eliminating the need for establishing on-premises servers and storage infrastructure, but also makes the service accessible from anywhere. It can swiftly adapt to any changes in business needs and scale up easily. Disaster recovery, automatic software updates and increased collaboration are some of the other benefits of cloud services.
Cloud computing is categorized on the basis of services offered and cloud location. The location based cloud can be categorised into public cloud and private cloud. In public cloud infrastructure is shared between different organizations, in contrast, private cloud offers dedicated infrastructure to a particular organization. Other emerging type of cloud computing is hybrid cloud which is a mix of both private and public cloud.
There are three major services provided by cloud computing. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offers hardware related services such as storage or virtual server. Development platform is offered through Platform as a service (PaaS) while Software as a service (SaaS) involves hosting software application on the cloud, accessible through an internet browser. Of these services, SaaS is expected to control more than half of the enterprise cloud services market.
Data security and interoperability are major concerns faced by cloud computing. Consequently, most of the enterprises are adopting hybrid cloud which facilitates easy customisation, increased security and better control on pricing.
The extensive growth of data and adoption of cloud storage has also accelerated growth of Big Data as a Service market, which includes Hadoop as a service (HaaS), Data as a service (DaaS) and Data Analytics as a service (DAaas).
