Types of Cloud Computing
First and foremost, there are three types of Cloud services that you can choose. The following is a discussion of three types of Cloud Computing that business owners can choose to help them run their business.
1. IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)
IaaS or Infrastructure as a Service is the most common type of service because IaaS offers virtual data servers, operating systems, networks as well as data storage drives via an Internet connection.
Users can manage various things such as the operating system, middleware and applications. In addition, users also have the storage capacity that can be allocated for starting, accessing, configuring, and stopping.
This service is quite widely chosen because it is considered cost-effective and ideal enough to help support the growth of a business from the start. Available resources will be adjusted according to the demand. So there will be no waste of unused resources if there is no demand at that time.
2. SaaS (Software as a Service)
SaaS or Software as a Service is a type of service that involves a software application to use by users, but is still managed by a Cloud service provider.
By using this service, users can access applications and SaaS services anywhere and anytime using a computer or smartphone that is connected to the Internet. This service allows users to perform software updates, fix bugs and perform other software maintenance.
The advantage of SaaS services is that there is no initial setup fee because users can start using the application immediately after they subscribe. Therefore, SaaS is very suitable for business who have short-term projects thanks to the payment model, pay-per-use. It doesn’t stop there, SaaS is also managed from a central location so we, as business owners, don’t have to worry about its maintenance.

3. PaaS (Platform as a Service)
PaaS or Platform as a Service is a type of service that provides hardware and software that is managed by an Cloud service provider, but users can still handle running applications.
Through this service, web applications can be created easily and quickly. Apart from that, software developers can also build custom applications online without having to worry about data storage, data presentation, and management.
Anyone can make software development easier, even for non-experts because it is just one click through a web browser. This is one of the advantages of using the Platform as a Service. Cloud Computing PaaS services can also be an ideal solution for business environments where there are many developers in one project.
