Cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive
Features of cloud computing
High availability of applications
Application instances are automatically replicated and fail-over seamlessly, with zero user impact. Isolation of application resources leads to less application downtime and maximum availability.
Automatic vertical and horizontal scaling
Applications automatically scale and load balance across servers. Automatic vertical and horizontal scalability, allowing each application to use only those resources required at any time. Horizontal scaling means that you scale by adding more machines into your pool of resources where vertical scaling means that you scale by adding more power (CPU, RAM) to your existing machine.
Truly flexible pricing
Cloud offers truly flexible and elastic pricing for developers. It is based upon resource usage so that developers pay only for resources used by applications.
Fast application deployment
Any application can be deployed in just minutes using GIT, SVN, archive or plugins like Maven, Eclipse, IDEA and NetBeans. One click deployment of the entire stack means you can focus on your business.
Easy management via SSH access
SSH access to containers is available.
Wide choice of programming languages and stacks
Java, PHP, Python, Node.js, Ruby and .NET applications can be deployed in minutes. A wide array of app server and database choices provide the broadest range of application support.
Hybrid Cloud for workload mobility
With multi-region support within different data-centers and clouds, Cloud offers a Hybrid Cloud solution with advanced automation for certified containers. The intended outcome is the ability to distribute various companies’ workloads in a variety of regions, within one Hybrid Cloud.
Self-service Web portals and in-built monitoring system
Admin panel provides a consolidated view of your cloud resources, with sophisticated management and monitoring of the cluster providing the lowest TCO (Total cost of Ownership)
