Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is cloud computing?

A: Cloud computing is the practice of sharing computing resources and delivering services through the Internet via remote servers rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications.

Q: What are cloud computing service models?

A: Platform-As-A-Service (PaaS) – PaaS provides an application development environment, allowing users to collaborate, develop, test, deploy, host and maintain applications in the cloud. A common example of PaaS is cloud-based environments for the development of enterprise-level software.

Infrastructure-As-A-Service (IaaS) – IaaS provides computing hardware such as network equipment, servers and data storage on a scalable basis in the cloud. A common example of IaaS is cloud-based backup and recovery.

Applications-As-A-Service (AaaS)/Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) – AaaS/ SaaS provide access to software. Users can log-on from any location and have full access to their specific software in the cloud. A common example of SaaS is cloud-based e-mail.

Q: What types of clouds are there?

A: Public cloud is a cloud computing model where a provider makes its services such as data storage available to the general public.

Private cloud is operated for a specific organisation and implemented within the corporate firewall. It may be managed by the IT department or a third party.

Hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment that combines a private cloud with public cloud services which remain unique entities but are bound together by technology that enables data and application portability.

Q: What are the benefits of cloud computing?

A: Cloud computing has several benefits, these are the top five:

  • Cost efficiency
  • Scalability of resource procurement
  • Accessibility of data from anywhere
  • Backup and recovery
  • Quick deployment
