The Fundamentals of Platform as a Service
Thumb platformasaservice

Platform as a service is a cloud-computing model that allows a third-party provider to offer IT resources, including hardware and software. The third-party provider houses the infrastructure on its own servers, meaning that clients don’t have to install the tools they require on-premise. Businesses don’t leave the entire IT system to the provider though, rather, the two parties work hand-in-hand. PaaS offers enterprises everything they need to carry out their IT operations regardless of the complexity or size.

The Cloud Might Be Even More Costly And Unsecure Than You Think
Thumb wolke2

Many companies are making a transition from their own IT infrastructure to cloud resources. This movement of crucial data to the cloud is being procured to enhance storage and safety of data, but few people are aware of the dangers that this technology could pose to the company. 


Cost Factor

Some companies are going for cloud sourcing to reduce the operating costs in data storage, but this could be a temporary way of cutting costs. At the moment, cloud sourcing seems like a cheap way of data storage. However, the costs are expected to go up as more companies get onboard,...

Modern Cloud Adoption: Emerging Threats and Concerns
Thumb smartphone6

It is a foregone conclusion that cloud services are becoming increasingly common within the workplace. However, they are not without their share of risks. Recent findings of the Netskope Cloud Report underpin these observations and businesses need to carefully analyse how the deployment of cloud-based networks may impact their daily operations. 


The Risk of Shadow Cloud Apps

One of the major threats to companies are emerging "shadow" cloud applications. The survey uncovered that the majority of these platforms are not compliant with enterprise-grade metrics such as...

The Cloud-Based Skills Gap: Keeping Pace with a Changing Environment
Thumb serverwartung

Cloud-based computing is normally associated with increased in-house efficiency, superior levels of redundancy and more efficient approaches to IT-based tasks. Unfortunately, this appears to be more of a myth than a reality. Recent research has found that a lack of the appropriate skills is dramatically impacting the potential ROI associated with such systems. Not only can this have a debilitating effect upon day-to-day operations, but this so-called skills gap is also making it difficult for organisations to leverage the power of the cloud to their advantage. What have statistics shown?

Why Hybrid Cloud is the Future of Computing
Thumb cloud5

The cloud is a rage, but the big advantages come with some significant drawbacks. The spotlight is now on hybrid cloud computing, essentially a mix of on-premises, private cloud, and public cloud deployment models, as an effective way to sustain the advantages while overcoming the drawbacks. 


The cloud made everything simple – the hybrid cloud is even simpler

Many enterprises have adopted the public and private cloud in a big way, to leverage the latest cutting-edge computing technology, such as advanced data analytic tools, machine learning platforms, and more. With the...

Why Changing From Cloud To On Premise Can Be Wise
Thumb server2

In recent years, many companies have found it advantageous to move to the cloud. This has especially been driven by the numerous benefits associated with cloud computing. For example, a business may find running initial services in the cloud as straightforward and relatively cheaper than setting on on premise systems and the cloud is also scalable. However, as the company grows bigger, the decision to stay in the cloud may not entirely be the right decision.


Some of the disadvantages associated with the cloud

While at first cloud computing seems cost-effective, as a company...

Advancement In Serverless Computing
Thumb serverlesscomputing

Development of serverless computing in the cloud world has grown considerably over the years as a cloud-oriented functioning design that controls vital infrastructure resources. The technology is an efficient microservice architecture that enables programmers to execute functions in the applications, then pay for the expenses incurred by the systems.

Naturally, the technology uses hardware which is a contradiction basing of the name ‘’serverless’’. But the administration of the program is basically “invisible” since the app designers do not...

The Evolution Of Cloud Computing
Thumb mainframe

In the early 2000s after the dot-com bubble burst, only few companies were key players in the development of cloud computing. Currently, the availability of high-capacity networks and affordable computers and the implementation of virtualization and service-based design have led to the latest version of cloud computing and an ever changing model.

Cloud computing has conquered utility computing and grid computing with the emergence of software as a service and cloud computing providers.


The history of cloud computing

Cloud computing's concept started in the 1960s....

Cloud and SaaS revenue increasing steadily
Thumb cloud4

Findings from the Synergy Research Group indicate a 23-29% growth of the cloud and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) over the next five years. It is projected that revenues will surpass the $200 billion mark by 2020. This comes a week before major cloud providers Google, IBM and Microsoft, to be followed afterwards by Amazon release their quarterly financials.


Beneficaciaries and losers

The predictions are good news for software developers that run in the cloud and those in the cloud business. However, it makes grim news for those in the business of selling hardware and software to...
