The cloud computing can be divided into three levels depending on the services offered by providers. From the innermost level to the outermost Cloud hosting services include: Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service and Software as a Service. A brief description of each of these levels:

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service)

“Infrastructure as a Service is a provision model in which an organization placed ‘outside’ the equipment used to support operations, this includes information storage, hardware, servers and networking components.

To understand this better, we first look at what cloud computing is? Cloud Computing is the cluster of computers or servers clubbed together and the resources are offered in virtualized portions as requested by the users.

What is the Difference between Cloud and Virtualization?

cloud computing

Though cloud & virtualization are the buzzing words in the industry, however, still there are many people are who are still confuse about the concepts of cloud and virtualization. They are still not sure about the differences between both of them.

The virtualization is an new  IT model that has an ability to separate the core computing functions and technology implementations from the physical hardware of a dedicated server. While, the cloud is a service where computing resources, software’s or data as a service are shared via the Internet as completely opposed to virtualization, which is a part of a physical infrastructure. read more

Introduction to Different Types of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is based around three different principles primarily, with all of them delivered in the context of a shared core environment. If you choose your own private cloud solution then IaaS, PaaS and SaaS won’t apply because you will control over the entire cloud, but if you opt for any other cloud solution offered by Bodhost then one of the following will come into play at some point.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

The fundamental idea of IaaS-based cloud computing services is that the consumer will have access to the resources that form the virtual machine, along with some of the external resources that can affect the operation of virtual machines externally. For larger businesses having this level of control will put them in a position where they can develop complex infrastructures from within the cloud to support their web applications; the benefit of this is that they can reduce costs because achieving such infrastructures using physical networking hardware and dedicated servers can be an expensive business. read more

Hyper-V Cloud Computing
