How does cloud computing work?
To understand how cloud computing work, it is essential to divide the cloud into two sections which are the back-end and the front-end, both ends are connected to each other through a network which is the internet.
The front end layers are those the user sees and interact with when they access their emails or social media account. While the back-end consists of the hardware, the software architecture that fuels the interface you see on the front end.
Because all computers have been programmed to work together, the applications take advantage of all computing power as if they were running on one particular machine.
Usually, cloud computing systems are managed by a central server with the purpose of managing traffics, and clients demand in order to ensure that everything runs smoothly. The central server makes use of a particular kind of hardware also known as the middleware which permits networked computers to communicate with each other.
One unique feature of cloud computing is that it gives room for a lot of flexibility. Depending on the demand, you can increase how much of the cloud resources you use without the need of assigning specific hardware for the job or reducing the number of resources allocated to you when they are not necessary.
Despite the benefits cloud computing offers to both large and small organizations, there are still some problems associated with this concept. For instance, when your internet network goes down, access to files may disappear. Also, there are also issues of security and risk of various company information’s been compromised by the cloud service provider.
Finally, although cloud computing is quite a new technology that is already spreading across various sectors of the economy; it offers so many advantages to an organization and its employees.
