The Cloud Computing concept is, the vast computing resources which can be located somewhere else instead within your computer room and you can connect and use them as per the need. Which means it allows companies to use latest and appropriate technology as a service, be it software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) or infras tructure as a service (IaaS), with the flexibility of pay-per-use business models by moving to IT as a subscription so that you get to pay for what you use, when you use it.
SaaS (Software as a Service):
- Financial Planning.
- Human Resources.
- Word Processing.
- Photo Sharing, Calendar and Contacts, Document Sharing etc….
PaaS (Platform as a Service):
- Microsoft Azure Service.
- Windows Azure (.NET Hosting).
- MS SQL Services.

IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service):

All these services deliver via internet browser regardless of getting worried about hardware or software to manage. It allows companies to shift their capital expense to operational expense. And that is one of the reasons why this practice is increasingly popular with SME’s and enterprises for cost-cutting. But company’s IT-people concentrate on using the cloud to improve efficiency whereas reduce the cost of IT infrastructure without compromising on reliability and security compliance. While on the other hand business-people expect for cloud to improve in business values by transforming the traditional business system.
Besides there plenty of service providers are available and they all are serving with different level of transparency, security compliance, pricing models, moreover lots of questions running in back of the mind like,
- The infrastructure they provide may support a single type of technology, or have the ability to host heterogeneous, interoperable technologies?.
- The business model costs might be optimized for operating expenses or towards capital investment?.
- The hardware and networking resources might be leased or owned?.
- The management of the IT systems might be self-directed by the business or performed by a third party, perhaps cloud computing platform provider?.
All these different approaches and factors make cloud adoption somewhat confusing.
