Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of computing power, database, storage, applications, and other IT resources via the internet with pay-as-you-go pricing. Whether you are using it to run applications that share photos to millions of mobile users or to support business-critical operations, a cloud services platform provides rapid access to flexible and low cost IT resources.

How Does Cloud Computing Work?

Cloud computing gives you access to servers, storage, databases, and a broad set of application services over the Internet. A cloud services provider such as Snugfort owns and maintains the network-connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application.

Benefits of Cloud

Agility

The cloud allows you to innovate faster because you can focus your valuable IT resources on developing applications that differentiate your business and transform customer experiences rather than managing infrastructure and data centres. With the cloud, you can quickly spin up resources as you need them, deploying hundreds or even thousands of servers in minutes.

Elasticity

Before cloud computing, you had to overprovision infrastructure to ensure you had enough capacity to handle your business operations at the peak level of activity. Now, you can provision the number of resources that you actually need, knowing you can instantly scale up or down with the needs of your business. This reduces costs and improves your ability to meet your users’ demands.

Cost savings

The cloud allows you to trade capital expense (data centres, physical servers, etc.) for the variable expense and only pay for IT as you consume it. Plus, the variable expense is much lower than what you can do for yourself because of the larger economies of scale.

Deploy globally in minutes

With the cloud, you can easily deploy your application in multiple physical locations around the world with just a few clicks. This means you can provide lower latency and better experience for your customers simply and at minimal cost.
