Cloud Computing

It is mainly used by business corporations to provide their employees with the expensive software and resources that would prove to be much more costly if ordered for every individual. These enterprises mostly use the Amazon Cloud Drive for their commercial purposes.

Another reason for audience to look for more cloud computing is because of the tremendous size in terms of storage space. For example, Google Drive and OneDrive are letting individuals to store upto 15GB of data for free. Cloud Computing can be divided into two parts: front end and back end. The front end includes the user interface and takes in input from the user and sends it to the back to the back end which is the main ‘cloud’ of Computers. Usually client servers are in the back end. As Cloud Computing is becoming more and more prominent, people question the security of their data that are being stored on literally, others’ servers. This therefore, gives rise to the idea of Self-hosted Cloud Computing.
