Cloud Computing – Cost Effective and Flexible Solution for Companies – Part 1 What is Cloud Computing Cloud computing is gaining popularity since last few years. It is a computing model that uses shared infrastructure to provide computing resources to companies dynamically over a cloud, such as internet. It enables companies to use data storage, software applications, and computer processing power owned and maintained by cloud service providers through the internet or proprietary network of the service provider. The cloud computing services are broadly divided into three categories: 1. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) 2. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) 3. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Alternatively, some providers

Gravity of Real-Time Security Issue in Today’s Cloud Environment The security has always been the core issue of the information technology since the advent of the concept of e-commerce and electronic transactions. There are the hundreds of thousands of security related threats that our networks encounter daily. If we analyzed the so-called big data, we would be astonished that billions of security events take place in our network elements daily. In fact, there are more than one billion events recorded just in a single Firewall network element. Is existing network security capable of dealing with the information in real time?
PaaS and IaaS: Rising Champions of Cloud Computing In the cloud conversation, Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) appear much less than the famed Software as a Service (SaaS). This is not surprising when you consider that a world already populated with built platforms and infrastructure has but to operate on them. However, offering Platforms and Infrastructure through the cloud has been a boon to the software development field, especially with the recently growing push toward increased collaboration between developers and admins, commonly referred to as Development Operations (DevOps). Distinctions and Utilization Though somewhat easy

A Short Summary: What Is Desktop as a Service? Desktop as a Service or DaaS is a concept put in practice through the cloud computing paradigm and is largely similar to Software as a Service (SaaS). It has the same concept as SaaS, there is a product, and it is not just the software, but the entire desktop environment to be made available on demand to any user regardless of geographical location or organizational separation. Desktop as a service or desktop virtualization uses a client-server model and all computing power being used for processing is that of the server. The client device is merely
