The Basic Service And Deployment Models Of Cloud Computing

Grazed from CloudTweaks. Author: Mojgan Afshari.

Nowadays, access to reliable high-performance hardware and software resources without large capital outlays, easier access to applications and services, capability of handling large amounts of information have encouraged managers of companies to migrate to cloud computing.

Cloud computing is a service-oriented technology that use both hardware and software to provide services through a network regardless of time and location. Cloud computing consists of three different service models and a company should cover all three distinctive service models in order to adopt cloud computing. These three cloud service models are: infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), software as a service ( SaaS). (Infographic Source: Horn Group)...

Cloud Computing: Improving Data Backup & Recovery #2 IT Priority (Infographic)

Grazed from SilverPeak. Author: Mike Laverick.

A study conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group found data backup and recovery to be the second most important IT priority for organizations over the next 12 months. The survey, conducted on behalf of Silver Peak, also revealed how critical data is perceived to be to an organization’s success.

Limited bandwidth, congestion, and latency due to distance make replicating data across a WAN or to the cloud challenging. These factors can lead to an increase Wide Area Network (WAN) infrastructure costs and significantly affect total cost of ownership (TCO) for offsite data protection and disaster recovery. Silver Peak addresses these challenges to help storage professionals meet recovery point objectives (RPOs), increase geographic distances between datacenters, and reduce bandwidth expenditures normally associated with WANs...

High Performance Cloud Computing Networks [Infographic]

Grazed from Business2Community. Author: Brian Wallace.

Today, networking takes place both through data centers and on the cloud. How was the system born and where is it going? The Ethernet cable, a common household essential even today, was invented in 1973 by Xerox PARC. From here, it would take seven years before a basis of Ethernet standards would be published.

Ethernet slowly improved over the next 25 years until, in 1995, Ethernet was standardized to “Fast Ethernet” — 100Mbps. As Ethernet turned 40 years old in 2013, the technology had been universally implemented, but the rate of innovation had slowed to a crawl. Finally, in 2010, Ethernet standardization increased to 40Gbps and 100Gbps...

You know your business needs to be in the cloud, but how do you do that if you’re not sure what exactly the cloud is? Don’t feel alone! As it turns out, 95% of Americans who say they don’t use the cloud actually do, which speaks to the wide-reaching effects of advancements in cloud computing.

The “cloud” is a broad term whose features have found their way to many of the most popular apps and tools used by personal users and businesses alike. Whether it’s storing and backing up files or communicating and cooperating with users around the globe, the cloud has changed the way we use computers and mobile devices to interact with each other...

The Cloud Storage Battle: Box vs. Dropbox (infographic)

Grazed from ComputerScienceDegreeHub. Author: Editorial Staff.

It’s a fact: more data is added via the Internet every second than the Internet had in its entirety twenty years ago. This accumulation of “Big Data” comes from many sources, including consumer and business files — including photos and images, spreadsheets, mobile application data, and more.

In the past, much of this data was stored in the memory of computers and mobile devices. Now, data is increasingly being stored “in the Cloud,” which allows it to be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection, and numerous companies are battling it out for this market. Let’s look at the numbers behind cloud storage, and particular for two hot companies in this market, Box and Dropbox — both of whom received additional funding in Jan 2014...

Cloud Infographic: Cloud And The Medical Field

Grazed from CloudTweaks. Author: Editorial Staff.

For some time now, genomics or the study of genes has been branded as the possible playing field for the next medical revolution. Indeed, some believe that genomics can have as much an impact on human civilization this century as computers did in the previous one, with possible applications from the frivolous (specifying eye color in an unborn child) to momentous (developing designer medicine to target specific symptoms in specific patients).

Gene sequencing produces an enormous amount of data, and processing this data requires an enormous amount of computing power. While the price of gene sequencers has reduced drastically over the years, the same is not true for computing resources. Unless, cloud computing is the resource being used…
