Gone are the days when individuals, startups and large organisations were limited by the high cost of IT equipment such as servers and enterprise applications for their operations. Cloud computing, the delivery of computer services over the internet (“the cloud”), has revolutionised how computing services are developed and distributed for everyday and enterprise use.
These services include servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence, to provide speedier innovation, flexible resources, and scale economies.
Cloud computing makes it possible for anyone to access and operate. It reduces the cost of access and maintenance of IT services for individuals and organisations by reducing or eliminating the need for in-house IT infrastructure and human resources to manage them. In addition, it enables access to data and services regardless of location.
