3 Basic Concepts You Should Know In Cloud Computing

3 Basic Concepts You Should Know In Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is technology that organisations today absolutely need.

It gives you the convenience of sharing resources (through the internet) all across the globe. With cloud computing services, you can easily share important files anywhere, anytime—making you hit deadlines faster in an effective and hassle-free way.

Reduced costs are one of the most beneficial features cloud computing offers. Whether it’s CapEx (Capital Expense) or OpEx (Operational Expense), you can save on the expenses; resources are paid for only when they’re actually used. With cloud computing, you can assign work quite easily, choosing instead to focus on bigger tasks. Scaling—up or down—is another advantage of cloud computing.

Let’s take a brief look at the three most common concepts that a cloud computing user deals with.


Software as a Service (SaaS) is a centrally-hosted business model, where software is licensed based on subscriptions.

Software vendors can develop and support their services through this medium. This model is best suited for customers with fewer clients—who provide services over web browsers.


Platform as a Service (PaaS) is, as the name suggests, a platform where web applications are developed, deployed, tested, and supported.

Customers can now easily run, manage, and develop their applications without dedicating an individual infrastructure to organise these operations, which is required when developing and launching a web application.


Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides virtualised resources through cloud computing.

Customers can get a brief about infrastructure details like physical computing resources, scaling, data partitioning,  backup, location, and security, among several other significant infrastructure details required by an application.

A lesser-known concept is the Desktop as a Service (DaaS). It is a slightly enhanced version of the SaaS that supports the use of the application by multiple users simultaneously to complete tasks faster.

These are some of the concepts that will help make your cloud computing experience more effective. IT solutions providers like Volantis Technologies Pvt Ltd offer the best cloud-computing services for your organisation.
