Server Based Computing
How it Works and its Advantages
Server-based computing / Cloud Computing has kicked off the next big wave in
home and business computing. It is offering many benefits including business agility, security, scalability
and reduced administration resulting in a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for any size and type of
company. The recent innovations in mobile device and virtualization technologies, including today’s
comprehensive wireless access to high-speed Internet, have all contributed to the acceleration of Cloud
Cloud Computing began with the Public Cloud where a service provider makes resources available to the
public either for free or with a pay as you go model. This can include computing services, applications
and storage. This model is low cost and easy to set up with no need to worry about scalability as you
only pay for what you use. The Public Cloud addressed the needs of the market but it was not tailored
to the needs of individual companies. While it offers many benefits, there are certain applications that
require stricter control over data. This has lead to the evolution of Private Cloud Computing or delivering
IT as a service securely within your own infrastructure.
The Private Cloud is essentially a Cloud Infrastructure that operates solely for a single organization or
where the service access is limited to a specific group of people. Private Cloud Computing is comprised
of networking, server hardware, storage and management tools with Server Virtualization. This is most
often managed internally but also can be hosted externally by a Managed Service Provider (MSP), which
is then known as a Virtual Private Cloud.
