i Quest Data Systems looks at cloud as a style of computing where massively scalable (and elastic) IT-related capabilities are provided “as a service” to external customers using Internet technologies. Cloud Computing which is the provisioning of services in a timely (near on instant), on-demand manner, to allow the scaling up and down of resources.

Inside Cloud
  • Infrastructure
    • Consolidation
    • Global Information Grid
    • Capacity Services

Cloud Computing – Components
  • Platform-As-A-Service (PaaS)
    • Delivers a computing platform and/or solution stack as a service
    • Facilitates deployment of applications without the cost and complexity of buying and
    • managing the underlying hardware and software layers
  • Infrastructure-As-A-Service (IaaS)
    • The delivery of computer IaaS, typically platform virtualization
    • For example:
    • Virtual desktops
    • Grid computing
  • Applications-As-A-Service (AaaS) /Software-As-A-Service (SaaS)
    • Leverages the Cloud in software architecture
    • Eliminates the need to install and run the application on the customer's own computer
