Third Party Cloud Services
Cloud services are services available via a
remote cloud computing server rather than an
on-site server. These scalable solutions are
managed by a third party and provide users
with access to computing services such as
analytics or networking via the internet
What are the benefits of cloud services?
Key advantages of using cloud services include
The ability to scale :
Because the cloud service provider supplies all
necessary infrastructure and software, there's no need for a
company to invest in its own resources or allocate extra IT
staff to manage the service. This, in turn, makes it easy for
the business to scale the solution as user needs change—
whether that means increasing the number of licenses to
accommodate a growing workforce or expanding and
enhancing the applications themselves.
Lowered costs :
Many cloud services are provided on a monthly or
annual subscription basis, eliminating the need to pay
for on-premises software licenses. This allows
organizations to access software, storage and other
services without having to invest in the underlying
infrastructure or handle maintenance and upgrades.
Increased flexibility :
With cloud services, companies can procure
services on an on-demand, as-needed basis. If and
when there’s no longer a need for a particular
application or platform, the business can simply
cancel the subscription or shut down the service.
Third Party Cloud Services
A cloud service provider is a third-party company
offering a cloud-based platform, infrastructure,
application or storage services. Much like a
homeowner would pay for a utility such as electricity
or gas, companies typically have to pay only for the
amount of cloud services they use, as business
Besides the pay-per-use model, cloud service providers
also give companies a wide range of benefits.
Businesses can take advantage of scalability and
flexibility by not being limited to physical constraints of
on-premises servers, the reliability of multiple data
centers with multiple redundancies, customisation by
configuring servers to your preferences and responsive
load balancing which can easily respond to changing
Though businesses should also evaluate security
considerations of storing information in the cloud to
ensure industry-recommended access and compliance
management configurations and practices are enacted
What types of cloud services are there?
Generally speaking, there are three basic types of cloud
Software as a Service (SaaS)
The most widely recognized type of cloud service is
known as software as a service, or SaaS. This broad
category encompasses a variety of services, such as file
storage and backup, web-based email and project
Examples of SaaS cloud service providers include
Dropbox, G Suite, Microsoft Office 365, Slack and
Citrix Content Collaboration. In each of these
applications, users can access, share, store and secure
information in “the cloud.”
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a service, or IaaS, provides the
infrastructure that many cloud service providers need to
manage SaaS tools—but don’t want to maintain
themselves. It serves as the complete data center
framework, eliminating the need for resource-intensive, on-
Examples of IaaS are Amazon Web Services (AWS),
Microsoft Azure and Google Compute Engine. These
providers maintain all storage servers and networking
hardware, and may also offer load balancing, application
firewalls and more. Many well-known SaaS providers run
on IaaS platforms.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
The cloud service model known as platform as a
service, or PaaS, serves as a web-based environment
where developers can build cloud apps. PaaS provides
a database, operating system and programming
language that organizations can use to develop cloud-
based software, without having to maintain the
