What is cloud computing ? Easy Explanation

With tremendous enhancement in technology all the leading companies and the emerging ones are migrating towards cloud computing and are offering the best cloud services to their customer. But there is a big question ?. what exactly the term cloud computing mean and if I adopt this technology, then will there be any benefits to my business….
Speaking forthrightly on cloud computing.In this blog, I am going to tell you about cloud computing and its service.I know there are lots of confusion about this technology and most of us are juggling these words like IOT, client-server, web app  and web services. Then what exactly this cloud computing means and what actually cloud computing services are? cloud computing is a broad term and we can’t define it in simple words. But according to the NIST(National institute of Standards and Technology)

“Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, On-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management efforts or services provider interaction. ”

Is this definition screwing your mind so let’s take a simple approach…… Before that, we need to take a look on the characteristics, model and services of the technology to simplify our concept.
Basically, cloud computing has some essential characteristics without which we cannot approve its definition.
Cloud computing five essential characteristics.If any service provider fulfills all this characteristics, then we can say it’s a real cloud computing service provider.
5 essential characteristics.

I hope after reading this blog you will become the ” cloudyrathor ” and must have cleared all the misunderstand regarding the concepts of cloud computing and the required characteristics of cloud computing.
