SELF-PROVISIONING AND ELASTIC CLOUD SERVICES
Cloud services encompasses a large range of IT resources provided over the internet. It also describes the professional services that support the selection, deployment and ongoing management of various cloud-based resources.
NBS Digitech provides a wide range of cloud based resources. The characteristics of cloud services include self-provisioning and elasticity. What this means is that customers can provision services on an ‘on-demand’ basis and when these services are no longer necessary, they can simply be shut down.
From the point of view of a business, cloud-based technology allows your organization the necessary access software, storage, compute and other IT infrastructure elements without having to maintain and to upgrade them.
Cloud services has the cloud offerings, such as software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). SaaS, PaaS and IaaS are sometimes referred to collectively as the SPI model which refers to the most common service models of cloud computing.
SaaS is a software distribution model in which applications are hosted by a service provider which is then made available to customers over the internet. Microsoft Office 365 is an example of such a software distribution model.
PaaS on the other hand refers to the delivery of operating systems and associated services over the internet without the necessity of being downloaded or installed. Customers can consequently create and deploy applications without having to invest in the underlying infrastructure. Amazon Web Services’ Elastic Beanstalk and Microsoft’s Azure are examples in this regard.
IaaS involves the outsourcing of the equipment needed to support operations, including storage, hardware, servers and networking components. These are also made accessible over a network. Amazon Web Services and Microsoft’s Azure are examples in this case.
