In this video series we will understand, what is cloud computing and the options we had before cloud computing came into existence. Along the way, we will understand everything you need to know, to build cloud ready applications.

Cloud computing is everywhere. It is a big shift from the traditional way businesses think about IT resources. Organizations of every type, size, and industry are using the cloud for a wide variety of use cases. You’re probably, already using cloud computing right now, even if you don’t realise it. If you use an online service like GMAIL for example to send emails, edit documents using Google docs, or stream music or films online, it’s likely that, cloud computing is making it all possible behind the scenes.

Not all clouds are the same and not one type of cloud computing is right for everyone. Several different models, types and services have evolved to help offer the right solution for your needs.

For example, financial services companies are using the cloud to power real-time fraud detection and prevention.

  • Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
  • Platform as a service (PaaS)
  • Software as a service (SaaS)
  • Private cloud
  • Public cloud
  • Hybrid cloud
  • Serverless computing
  • and many more concepts
