Cloud Computing Use Cases

Cloud Computing is an umbrella term referring to a plethora of technological advancements around distributed computing over the Internet. With humble beginnings around email hosting and early SaaS based services, cloud computing has metamorphized into a full blown set of offerings around platforms, infrastructure and as-a-Service offerings.

From an end user perspective, cloud computing offers ease of working and operating applications on a web browser without the need for downloading and installing a software on their computers. Everything from computing, storage, processing and presentation, cloud takes care of the application business logic whihc is powered by a bunch of computers located on the Internet. The world "cloud" is symbolic to the standard cloud shaped representation of a complex interconnection between computers in a network diagram. The users do not need to know about the computers as long as they can access the service via the web. Thus cloud computing abstracts away the technical configuration and networking setup of the computers in the form of a web address, which is either an URI or an API.

From a developer's point of view, cloud computing offers a lot of flexibility in choosing the various core infrastructure resources for building an app, such as computing, storage and networking. These resources can be bundled as custom platforms, or configured as bare bone infrastructure, sitting somewhere on the Internet to power the applications. Developers also have the option of scaling up and down to meet their application workloads. As a result cloud computing offers an elastic environment to build and deploy applications instantly.
