Cloud Computing

Essentially, cloud computing is required due to the various personal and corporate
issues that we face nowadays. These issues vary from purchasing and maintaining costly hardware and software resources that we engage in our everyday operations to simplifying these resources in the most effective manner for our own and societal benefit. In dealing with these issues, cloud computing has provided various benefits that have exceeded our expectations and offered more than we had anticipated.

–Why Cloud computing?
→ Cloud run software programs without installing them on our computers; it enables us to store and access our multimedia content via the internet, it enables us to develop and test programs without necessarily having servers and so on.

–What is cloud computing?

This require buying enough server space to reduce the risk and downtime and outages,and to accommodate peak traffic volume.As a result ,large amounts of servers space went unused for much of time .today’s cloud services providers allow companies to reduce the need for onsite servers,maintenance personnel, and other costly IT resources.
