WHAT IS CLOUD STORAGECloud storage is defined as the storage of data online in the cloud.

What does it cost to users?

Cost EfficientCloud computing is probably the most cost efficient method to use, maintain and upgrade. The cloud, on the other hand, is available at much cheaper rates and hence, can significantly lower the companys IT expenses.

Advantages of Cloud Computing

Backup and Recovery

Since all your data is stored in the cloud, backing it up and restoring the same is relatively much easier than storing the same on a physical device.

Advantages of Cloud Computing

Security: Many companies may not want to hand over their data to an external organization to store, fearing that they may not have the right security software to protect the companys data.

Disadvantages of Cloud computing

The Need for Reliable Internet ServiceFinally, you will become more dependent on a good Internet connection if you rely on the cloud. As more mission-critical work is done on the Internet, organizations will need much more bandwidth and few, if any, failures in Internet connectivity.Disadvantages of Cloud computing

How does cloud computing work?

To understand the workings of a cloud computing system, it is easier to divide it into two sections: thefront endand theback end. They are connected to each other through a network, usually theInternet. The front end is the side of the computer user or client. The back end is the cloud section of the system.

How does cloud computing work?

The front end consists of the clientscomputeror computer network and the application essential to access the cloud computing system. It is not necessary that all cloud computing systems have the same user interface.

On the back end of a cloud system, there are various computers, servers and data storage systems that make up the cloud. A cloud computing system could potentially include any computer program, from data processing to video games. Generally, each application will have its own dedicatedserver.

Some Commercial Cloud Offerings

Many of the activities loosely grouped together under cloud computing have already been happening and centralised computing activity is not a new phenomenaGrid Computing was the last research-led centralised approachHowever there are concerns that the mainstream adoption of cloud computing could cause many problems for usersMany new open source systems appearing that you can install and run on your local clustershould be able to run a variety of applications on these systemsThe Future

Cloud computing is a quickly changing area that will undoubtedly continue to play an increasingly major role for nonprofits, charities, and libraries as well as their IT systems. But which elements of your IT infrastructure you should move into the cloud and when will vary a lot from organization to organization.
