Whether you are running applications that share photos to millions of mobile users or you’re supporting the critical operations of your business, the cloud provides rapid access to flexible and low cost IT resources.
With cloud computing, you don’t need to make large upfront investments in hardware and spend a lot of time on the heavy lifting of managing that hardware. Instead, you can provision exactly the right type and size of computing resources you need to power your newest bright idea or operate your whole IT department. With cloud computing, you can access as many resources as you need, almost instantly, and only pay for what you use.
How does cloud computing work?
Cloud computing provides a simple way to access servers, storage, databases and a broad set of application services over the Internet. Cloud computing providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) own and maintain the network connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application.
How do public clouds compare?
Gartner Research positions Amazon Web Services in the Leaders Quadrant of the new Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (May 2015). Cloud IaaS, in the context of this Magic Quadrant, is defined as “a standardized, highly automated offering, where compute resources, complemented by storage and networking capabilities, are owned by a service provider and offered to the customer on demand.”
