Cloud Computing

 

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing is the delivery of services including servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence over the Internet to offer faster innovation, flexible resources.

Cloud computing technology gives access to storage, files, software, and servers through their internet-connected devices likes computers, smartphones, tablets, and wearables. Cloud computing providers store and process data in a location that’s separate from end users.

Benefits of cloud computing

  • Agility
  • Elasticity
  • Cost savings
  • Deploy globally in minutes


How does cloud computing work?

One benefit of using cloud-computing services is that firms can avoid the upfront cost and complexity of owning and maintaining their own IT infrastructure, and instead simply pay for what they use, when they use it.


Cloud computing components

  • Data centers
  • Networking capabilities
  • Virtualization


Types of cloud Services

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Software as a Service (SaaS)

Your cloud infrastructure can be organized in several ways

  • Public Cloud
  • Private Cloud
  • Community Cloud
  • Hybrid Clouds

What are the advantages and disadvantages of cloud computing?

Cloud computing is not necessarily cheaper than other forms of computing, just as renting is not always cheaper than buying in the long term. If an application has a regular and predictable requirement for computing services it may be more economical to provide that service in-house.

SaaS application may also mean you are using the same applications as a rival, which might make it hard to create any competitive advantage if that application is core to your business.

RPA

RPA? How robotic process automation streamlines business processes Two kinds of RPA: Attended and unattended Attended automation Attended automation allows you to focus on more high-value work across your organisation. It does this by automating repetitive, manual, front-office activities and mimics actions you perform on your desktop or browser, like mouse clicks, by recording and playing back these actions in real time. Unattended automation By contrast, as its name suggests, unattended automation doesn’t require someone to be at their computer. Instead, unattended bots do the work by themselves recording and playing back actions. Because they can use triggers and schedule automated events, they’re ideal for accelerating the automation of high-volume tasks across your organisation. Faster ROI and improved compliance Because they don’t require custom code from the development team, bots are a very low-cost solution. They’re also easy to implement quickly. As a result, ROI from impleme

5G Technology

5G Technology What is 5G? 5G is the fifth generation of cellular technology. It is designed to increase speed, reduce latency, and improve flexibility of wireless services. It is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. 5G enables a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices. The 5G network will also simplify mobility, with seamless open roaming capabilities between cellular and Wi-Fi access. Mobile users can stay connected as they move between outdoor wireless connections and wireless networks inside buildings without user intervention or the need for users to reauthenticate. 5G technology will introduce advances throughout network architecture. 5G New Radio, the global standard for a more capable 5G wireless air interface, will cover spectrums not used in 4G. New antennas will incorporate technology known as massive MIMO (multiple input, multiple output), which enables mu

Internet of Things (IoT)

Internet of Things (IoT)? IoT has become one of the most important technologies of the 21st century. Now that we can connect everyday objects—kitchen appliances, cars, thermostats, baby monitors—to the internet via embedded devices, seamless communication is possible between people, processes, and things. By means of low-cost computing, the cloud, big data, analytics, and mobile technologies, physical things can share and collect data with minimal human intervention. Access to low-cost, low-power sensor technology Connectivity Cloud computing platforms Machine learning and analytics Conversational artificial intelligence (AI) With IoT, data is transferable over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interactions. How does IoT work? An IoT ecosystem consists of web-enabled smart devices that use embedded systems -- such as processors, sensors and communication hardware -- to collect, send and act on data they acquire from their environments.
