Hybrid clouds combine public and private clouds that are linked by technology and enable the sharing of data and applications. With the ability to move data and applications between private and public clouds, hybrid cloud gives your business more flexibility, more deployment options, and helps you streamline your existing infrastructure, security, and compliance. Types of Cloud Services IaaS: With Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), a cloud service provider manages the infrastructure for you (real servers, network, virtualization and data storage) over an internet connection.
The user logs in via an API or a dashboard and effectively rents out the infrastructure. You manage the operating system, applications, and middleware, while the vendor manages the hardware, network, disks, storage, and servers. and is responsible for managing breakdowns, repairs, and equipment issues. This is a common deployment pattern for cloud storage providers. PaaS:
With Platform-as-A-Service (PaaS), the application hardware and software platform is provided and managed by an external cloud service provider, but you manage the applications running on the platform. on which the application is based. Aimed primarily at coders and programmers, PaaS provides users with a common cloud platform to build and manage applications (an important part of DevOps) without having to build and maintain the infrastructure normally associated with the process. SaaS: Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is a service that provides its users with an application managed by a cloud service provider.
In general, SaaS applications are web applications or mobile applications that users can access through a web browser. Software updates, bug fixes and other general software maintenance are performed for the user and connect to cloud applications through a dashboard or API. SaaS also eliminates the need to install applications locally on each user’s computer, giving groups or teams greater access to software.
