What is Cloud Computing in a simple concept?

    Cloud computing comes in the context of digital transformation assistance, it means the ability to convert all information systems from servers, databases and software to virtualised components, that are highly reliable through Internet to enable any company size small or large to implement IT Systems seamlessly, securely and at low cost.

    Cloud computing is divided into three sections:

    1. IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) is an alternative to various components in your IT System like servers, networks and operating systems. You can book a server with any operating system like Windows Server, Linux and Unix through cloud computing in minutes within any data center deployed across the world with the desired specifications and manage it remotely as if it were in your office at a very cheap cost either monthly or hourly if you wanted it temporarily.
    2. PaaS (Platform as a Service) is an alternative to various platforms such as databases, development platforms, and internal communication portals like Email, SharePoint, SQL Server, Oracle, WordPress and many more. You don’t need to book or pay for hardware servers for these types of platforms. The hardware servers required to host these platforms are professionally managed by the service operator transparently and also at a simple cost. The price will be calculated according to the size of the data or the number of transactions on a monthly basis.
    3. SaaS (Software as a Service) is an alternative to all known software used by many businesses and individuals such as ERP (Enterprise Resources Planning) as management software for various companies and factories. In this case, the client does not need to pay for the servers or platforms used by these applications or your worries of how to manage them, where the operator of the service carry all its cost and professional management, so the client bears a very small monthly cost, and it is calculated only based on the number of users in their companies who use the application, it is worth noting that the cloud application SaaS save more than 85% of the cost of implementing application in companies compared to the traditional methods.
