What is Enterprise Cloud Computing?
Enterprise Cloud computing is an advanced version of grid computing and works on the principle of shared computing resources. In enterprise cloud computing, the word ‘enterprise’ stands for organizations and ‘cloud’ stands for the internet. Therefore, cloud computing is a kind of computing technology aided by the internet to help organizations to manage their business. Enterprise Cloud computing enables the delivery of various services such as servers, storage and applications to users through the internet. Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale. At the foundation of cloud computing is the broader concept of converged infrastructure and shared services. It focuses on maximizing the effectiveness of the shared resources. Cloud resources are usually not only shared by multiple users but are also dynamically reallocated per demand. This can work for allocating resources to users. With cloud computing, multiple users can access a single server to retrieve and update their data without purchasing licenses for different applications.
What are the advantages of Cloud computing for an enterprise?
Following are the benefits of cloud computing for an enterprise –
Accessibility is the freedom to use enterprise cloud anywhere and anytime. This ensures that the employees are connected to the network no matter what.
Clouds make use of multiple underlying servers as opposed to physical servers. This ensures that even if one of the underpinning servers has failed, the network continues to work.
The access to the cloud network is only request-based and password-encrypted and hence as secure as a network can be.
How do I access my enterprise cloud computing account?
To do so, you need to type in the web address of your enterprise cloud. Every cloud has a portal from where you can log in to your account. Enter your credentials making sure to type them correctly. Passwords are case sensitive and a slight deviation will outright deny access to your cloud portal.
How can I launch my own cloud?
You can buy cloud services from a provider and go on moving your data to the cloud. If you already have a data center and are planning to procure it as the cloud, you need to combine all the resource of the servers into one. Any cloud professional should be proficient enough to do so.
