The Ubiquity of Cloud Computing, a Metaphor for Internet

From being the eponymous abstraction of complex hardware and software infrastructure of the internet, holistic services of “cloud” emerged to deliver technology, from computing power to network & store infrastructure, services and application interface, as a service to a myriad consuming clients.
Right from the most used web service technologies of social media, network-based communication tools like emails, messaging and calling apps like Skype and Whatsapp to natural-language intelligent bots like Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant, cloud-based technologies have become a mainstay of everyday personal life. But the true power of cloud computing, implementing rapidly deployed services in the cloud, is witnessed in business transformation and sustainability.
Deployment, tools and services of cloud computing.
Cloud computing or internet computing mitigates the complexity of internet application architectures by virtualization, which is accomplished through partitioning, segregation and encapsulation and significantly reducing the need for purchasing, powering and managing multiple physical servers and data centers.
Businesses’ exploring the power of cloud are experiencing benefits like flexibility, efficiency and strategic value, but perhaps the biggest advantage is scalability – to handle growing or diminishing resources through various subscription models. For instances, companies like Netflix and Airbnb leverage this potential flexibility of autoscaling and load balancing.
Organizational data like social media posts, purchase transaction records, cell phone GPS signal, searches, blog posts, digital pictures and videos, etc. congregate to 2.5 quintillion bytes every day and requires a cost-effective, efficient, and secure storage. Storage deployment options of public, private or hybrid clouds offer sizeable, scalable storage and on-demand backups & recovery through a vast network of physical servers. Robust and easy accessibility, security capability of Identity management and encryption are prominent features of popular back-up solutions like Dropbox, EGYNTE and Amazon S3.
Cloud management software addresses large ecosystem of connected cloud apps through Integration-oriented application programming interfaces (API) to sync data from personal mobile devices, BYOD scenarios, multiple work locations and the formidable task of streamlining and optimizing a heterogeneous environment of “Multi-cloud.”
Cloud computing has become the medium of choice for development, testing and deployment of software to create scalable cross-platform experiences. Dev-test environments like LoadStorm and BlazeMeter and mobile game development tool like Amazon Lumberyard are popular cloud tools.
Cloud infrastructure offers optimal integration of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to analyze the volume of data generated by IOT, Data Analytics and Blockchain. Some of its well-known examples include Amazon Web Services with Keras, IBM Watson, and Microsoft Cognitive AI, open-source big data tools like Hadoop, Cassandra and HPCC.
The distinctive core feature of cloud computing is service models of commitment between a service provider and a client namely SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Ranging from most visible service offering on-demand software like Software as a Service (SaaS) to middleware Platform as a Service (PaaS) platforms of Google’s App Engine, IBM BlueMix, and lowest level cloud service of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) are agreements controlling Storage, Back-up, bandwidth and computing services levels.
Future developments and capabilities.
Server-less technologies, 5G Networks, cloud-based container systems and regulations such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are a few significant developments to enhance cloud technology efficiency. Cloud computing is projected to be a transformative technology in building a digital-first infrastructure of smart elevators, drone taxis and driverless cars, trains and subways, etc.
Data analytics and AI as a service feature enable emergence of an industry made up of thousands of distinct and separate clouds, working in unison to form a digital ecosystem of different industry verticals like ground operations maintenance of airlines, fraud prevention by banking clouds, power grids monitored by utility clouds and video burglar alarms beamed to security clouds. Overall, the future of cloud computing is exciting, and the scope is limitless.
