In simple words,Cloud Computing is a platform where it allows the users to access data, applications,and services on Internet. Here, “Cloud” is referred to Internet.This methodeliminates the need for hardware (hard drives and servers), henceforth reducingthe cost.
The uses of cloudcomputing are in our day to day life such as streaming videos on Youtube,Netflix, sharing files on Mail Servers.Benefits of CloudComputing are : 1.Cost : Thiseliminates buying the hardware and software and also consumption of electricity2. Accessing Anywhere:These can be accessed in any part of the world.3.
Security : It hasits own firewall wherever accessed and there will be no loss of confidentialdata4. Speed : Hugeamounts of computing resources can be provisioned in minutes.6. Reliability : InPC, we back up our data in another drive and if that hard drive is crashed, itwill result in loss of data. Unlike PC, this has a data backup and disasterrecovery service which will make the business continuation easy and alsoeconomical. (Microsoft Azure, 2018) Scenario 1 :For this, as statedin the question Amazon is the best Workplace. The pricing is flexible and weare paying only for what we use. We have monthly and hourly installments.
Withmonthly billing, we pay a fixed monthly fee for unlimited usage during themonth. This is suitable for those who use this as their primary desktop elsehourly installments are recommended. There are multiple optionsfor hardware. And these are very economical than a hardware device. The monthlystandard pricing of 2vCPU, 4 GIB memory, root volume 80 GB is around $42 to $50based on the user volume.
The highest user volume give is 100 GB. Taking 50 GB as the uservolume, it is costing around $45 per month; and $540 per month. As per ourtask, the above device is enough for the speeding plan. We can use 2 devices ofthis for a better speeding plan. (Amazon, 2018) Scenario 2 : This scenariorequires a private cloud infrastructure which can be in the form of VirtualPrivate Server(VPC). As the name says, it’s a virtual machine and is sold by anInternet hosting service.
Using this, it ensures that most of the resourcesavailable to the client. Examples are VMWare Player, Microsoft Virtual PC, etc.(Amazon, 2018) Scenario 3: We have 1000workstations in the given network. Each workstation is costing around $800, soin total it is around $800,000 which is more than a cloud administrations. Additionally,company needs to spend on power and furniture cost which comes to a total of $1000,000.As per the case studyof cloud computing, I considered 3 main factors for a better networkingenvironment. 1.
Cost 2. Update: Any softwarewe use, the it is of the latest versions, which will help us to improve on whatwe are working for.3. Security (Amazon, 2018): There will be nochance of stealing the data and this data is encrypted with higher levels of cryptography.
