Benefits of cloud-based platforms – geeksforjobs


Hey all, Welcome to Geeksforjobs

Less expensive

-> Provides a plan – “Pay as you go”

-> Cost is directly proportional to consumption.

-> There are no hidden costs such as infrastructure costs.

-> This creates a chance to pay for additional resources when they are needed.

-> Stop paying for resources we no longer need.

-> Allows to predict costs.

-> Examples are mostly public cloud platforms such as Gmail, Outlook and so on.

More scalable

-> We are able to reduce or increase services and resources based on load demand (such as xGB RAM, yGB hard disk, CPU… .. and so on).

-> This can be done at any time.

-> There are two types of vertical and horizontal scaling.

green colourical- It is possible to increase server power by adding resources vertically. Examples are adding more memory, GPU and so on.

Horizontal – Servers are added here.

-> This can be done by humans or by machines.

More elastic

-> The system adds or removes resources when demand increases or decreases.

-> it depends

  1. Website traffic
  2. Maximum traffic time
  3. Bounce rate
  4. Demographics like age, gender etc.
  5. geographical situation

More current in nature

-> Cloud ensures that the latest and best resources are used by the server.

-> Hardware is updated by cloud-providers. They also update the hardware.

-> New updates are made available without changing the currently used resources which reduces the cost.

-> Example: Suppose there are ten disks. If one fails, it is replaced without replacing the other disk.

-> The user can focus on the deployment and creation of applications and not on the background feature.

-> This feature reduces the burden of maintaining the software.

-> No need to worry about hardware setup and upgrade.

More reliable

-> When the business aspect is worked out, we need to ensure that our data is available at all times to use servers and resources. Cloud provides this facility.

-> It provides backup of data. Typically, data is stored in more than one data center at the same or different geographic locations, which does not facilitate data loss.

-> It provides disaster recovery.

fault tolerance: One in ten disks replaced by the cloud-provider without affecting the user.

More global

-> Most major cloud providers such as Microsoft, Google, IBM, Amazon, and so on are found in a wide range of geographic locations. In most locations, there is more than one data center for data backup.

More security

-> Security of data centers such as can enter the premises and operate the server etc.physical security.

->Digitally secure – Those who are able to access resources and use data.

More privacy

-> These are mostly for private and hybrid clouds.

-> There are several sets of compliance policies such as HIPAA that provide data security and privacy.
