How different types of cloud computing solutions affects each other’s performance and data security and exploit functionality over the Internet, rather than delivering full blown solutions which may affect the security of all the information that runs through the web?
Cloud Computing Solutions, Performance and Security
There are three basic types of cloud computing:
Infrastructure as a Service
Platform as a Service
Software as a Service
Infrastructure as a service serves clusters or virtualized servers, storage, network and system software for replacing the function of the whole data center. On the other hand, platform as a service has virtualized servers by which users can operate existing applications or they can develop new ones regardless of operating systems, server hardware and computing capacity. And Software as a service (SaaS) is the most widely used form of cloud computing, which provides entire functions related to sophisticated traditional applications.
It is easy to install the software in SaaS as well as no complexity for maintenance, upgrades and patches as the software is being managed centrally at the SaaS dealer's facilities.
