Resources – What is the Cloud?
The Cloud allows end users to quickly, and easily, access computer resources that may otherwise be too expensive. These resources are essentially split into three core categories:
Software as a Service (SaaS)
Applications that are designed for end users & delivered over the internet
Software that is managed from a central location & users do not have to apply upgrades or patches
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
A set of tools and services designed to make coding and deploying applications quickly and efficiently
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
The physical hardware and software that powers everything i.e. Servers, Storage, Networks and Operating Systems
