How Does Cloud Computing Work?

Cloud computing is having a huge impact on business. With most large companies like Facebook using the cloud because it is effective and makes economic sense.

In addition to this, cloud computing is able to integrate with desktop in organizations to save money and resources on the front end as well.

Cloud computing is the next Internet age, and more and more people are making use of it daily.

The Basics of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing service providers have trusted networks and specialized datacenter spanning the globe to run your business applications and store data on your behalf.

You and your team have easy access to these systems and still handle the operations and support.

In the cloud, email serving, data storage and compute resources are monitored 24 x 7. This happens because most cloud service providers are billing only for usage. This also helps save resources and money.

The two main areas of a cloud are the front end and the back-end.

The front end is the interface which is accessed by the user from their location and device. You can enter the cloud via a web portal, telnet, RDP, or remote desktop to access your virtual servers at any time necessary.

The back-end is where the heavy lifting is done. It’s where tools and infrastructure make cloud computing possible.

This is all built and supported by the cloud service providers which is where the most value is because businesses can focus on their application (or SaaS) instead of infrastructure.

Another critical service providers handle is system and data backups. This is key to their SLA and dedicated resources also handle this in the back-end.


Safety is critical and with specialized cloud companies, it is becoming safer in some cases to use the cloud instead of local resources.

There are new cloud service providers entering the market every day with more on the way.

Companies like Google, Netflix, and Facebook have led the way for many to follow.
