What are cloud-based systems?
Cloud-based systems refer to computing services, infrastructure, and applications hosted on remote servers and delivered over the Internet rather than being installed on local machines or on-premises hardware. These systems leverage the resources of data centers operated by cloud service providers, allowing users to access and manage their data and applications via web browsers or specialized client applications.
Cloud-based systems offer several advantages, including:
- Scalability: Cloud-based systems can quickly scale resources, such as storage and computing power, according to user demands, which makes them suitable for businesses of all sizes.
- Cost savings: Users only pay for the resources they consume, eliminating the need for significant upfront investments in hardware and software. This also reduces costs associated with maintenance and upgrades.
- Accessibility: Cloud-based systems can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, enabling remote work and collaboration among team members across different locations.
- Automatic updates: Cloud service providers manage and update the infrastructure and applications centrally, ensuring users can always access the latest features and security patches.
- Data security and backup: Cloud-based systems often have built-in redundancy and automatic backups, protecting against data loss due to hardware failure or other issues.
Where and how would you use the cloud?
A cloud-based system is suitable for any business model, independent of size. The question is whether, as a company, your cloud needs to be public or private facing.
A private cloud-based system is one that is shared by your internal business or several associated businesses for the purposes of file storage, instance reporting, sharing a custom-built CMS or creating an internal software application. An external-facing cloud system is more specifically used for delivering digital products or communicating with customers via a cloud-based channel.
