Hey there, today I am gonna talk about an interesting topic and that is cloud computing and its different modules IaaS, SaaS, PaaS. While hearing the word ‘CLOUD’, all might have different thoughts. Very well, when you ask this question to a school student, they will show us the skies, funny isn’t it? And when we ask graduated people, they say, its mobile storage area, well somewhat right. But what exactly is cloud computing? In the beginning, before I start my career, frankly speaking, I don’t know what it is and hesitated to ask anyone. So, as some of my friends mentioned previously, ‘Google is your best friend’, I started researching on the topic. At first, it was confusing, later it was crystal clear. So, let’s get to know more about it.

What is Cloud Computing?

     Cloud computing is a technology that besides all the computer software and hardware that you use lounging on your desktop, or even somewhere within your corporate network, some other company offers you both as service and tries to access it over the Internet, usually in an entirely structured manner. The precise location of the software and hardware, and how it functions, does not really matter to you, the user is you but somewhere up within vague “cloud” portrayed by the Internet. 

    This buzzword means a lot to different troops. some from Information technology say it’s outsourcing while others say it’s computer service that stays out of firewall network. When we start talking, it goes on. So, let’s check on our cloud service modules.
