What kind of services and applications are considered cloud services?

Cloud services refer to innumerable IT related services that are provided over the internet. All services that are offered to the consumers via the internet relate to some form of the cloud. Cloud service providers offering services to multiple consumers via the internet is called public cloud. When the services are offered for the exclusive use of one consumer it is called private cloud.

The Cloud Computing Services are Delivered in the Three Models of:

Software as a Service(SaaS): Consumers can access the applications on a rental basis and the providers give them license to use for a certain period of time.

Platform as a Service(PaaS): Developers get a framework to create, test and deploy applications. The provider controls and manages the infrastructure though the developers have control over the applications they deploy.

Infrastructure as a Service(IaaS): Users can avail the hardware like networks, firewalls, storage, operating systems and servers on a rental basis.

Features of the Cloud Services Include:

The cloud is elastic on a self-service base. Consumers can generate their resources at peak times on demand and discard them at normal times without the hassles of deploying them on their internal computers eliminating delays as in traditional IT.

The consumers do not pay for licenses, upgrades and maintenance but rather on a monthly subscription basis paying only for what they consume.

They have access to the services from any network access points like desktops, laptops, mobile phones etc. The resources are pooled across to multiple users.

Unlimited storage, data backup and disaster recovery are three more vital benefits of cloud services. 

Cloud services simply mean the numerous IT services that are given over the internet. All the services that are given to the customers through the internet are somewhere connected to the cloud. Cloud services providers of simply CSP offer your services along with several other customers on the internet via the internet known as the public cloud. When the services are given exclusively to one person then it is known as a private cloud.
