As business grows companies require more resources for their online presence. Rather than owning their own computing infrastructure or data centers, companies can rent access to anything from applications to storage from a cloud service provider.
Cloud computing services cover a vast range of options delivered on-demand, fom the basics of storage, networking, and processing power through to natural language processing and artificial intelligence as well as standard office applications, typically over the internet and on a pay-as-you-go basis. Pretty much any service that users do not require physical access to the computer hardwareare can now be delivered via the cloud.
One benefit of using cloud computing services is that companies can avoid the upfront cost and complexity of owning and maintaining their own IT infrastructure, and instead simply pay for what they use and when they use it. This means, if companies need more resources or perhaps less, they can increase or decrease their resource requirements on demand with no down time. This means they can modify workloads, storage, processing power and memory. With scalability, companies no longer have to worry about paying more for maintenance, hardware upgrades or software upgrades.
The enormous volumes of data created and maintained by industries outgrew its infrastructure capabilities and is increasingly dependent on the extensive use of big data architectures, due to the heterogeneous…
