Cloud computing for your business

What is cloud computing? Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services, such as servers, storage, networking, etc over the internet for faster innovation and enhanced scalability. Cloud computing services are also managed by the cloud, which means that there would not be a need for someone to set up a local hardware server from scratch. This eases out the tedious process of setting up a server, with the right amount of CPU, RAM, and storage. Most tech companies have integrated some cloud services into their application, but why is cloud so attractive to companies? This article will review some of the advantages of using cloud solutions (specifically AWS) in your software.

One of the main advantages of using AWS services is the offering of multiple fully-functional services. As of 2022, there are approximately 200+ services that cater to web development, databases, mobile development, analytics, machine learning, blockchain development, and many more. With a wide variety of services, AWS handles most of the hardware setup, while users can focus on the configuration they need for those services. Users can just pick-as-you-go for those services. (Only use the service you need)

Secondly, AWS services are pay-on-the-go pricing. It means that you only pay for what you use. AWS is much more cost-saving as you only pay for what you use, as compared to traditional on-premise hardware, where you have to pay a regular fixed amount to maintain the hardware.

Thirdly, AWS is flexible and adaptive in the scalability of your application. It offers complete customization in each of its services. For eg, you can increase the CPU or RAM with a click of a button for your web application servers. This flexibility helped to prevent overutilizing your server configuration, and paying more than you need. 

Lastly, AWS provides security in all of its services. The user can define the roles and permissions another person gets. In addition, AWS has dozens of data centers all over the world. Diversifying the data across regions of data centers ensures that a disaster striking one region would not cause a permanent data loss.

The benefits of cloud computing are endless. Its fully-functional features ensure that users and businesses can scale their software properly and securely at any point in time, and pay for what they need. The downside of cloud computing is the complexity of the implementation of the cloud infrastructure in your software, but this issue could easily be solved by getting an expert in tech for consulting or searching for well-detailed AWS documentation online.
