Cloud computing is the leading emerging technology that will be leveraged by Large, Small Medium-sized Business (SMB), and Government entities . The method of using cloud computing in business is comprised of several different means of supplying a service to its users which include:
Software as a Service – This is a type of cloud computing that delivers a single application through browsers using a multiple tenant architecture. Customers using this type of architecture have no upfront investment in servers or software licensing. Cost to use this type of service is low compared to conventional hosting. Example of this service can be found in Google Apps, Salesforce.com and Zoho Office.
Platform as a Service – This is a Software as a Service (SAAS) variation that delivers development environments as a service. Customers are able to build their own applications that run on the providers infrastructure and are delivered to their users via the internet from the providers servers. Examples of PAAS is saleforces.com’s Force.com, Amazon EC3, Google App Engine.
Web services in the cloud – Web service providers offer APIs that enable developers to use web service functionality over the internet rather than delivering full applications. Example web service API’s include Google Maps, U.S. Postal Service, ADP payroll processing.
