Being able to scale up the management and operation of technology to a cloud-based service model (cloud computing) means that companies have a clear idea of the solution required based on their needs, which will define aspects such as the volume of processing, and based on their possibilities, determining factors such as cost, return on investment (ROI), etc. In other words, companies finally will decide which will be the schemes of the use and consumption of the services to be used from the cloud.
There are 3 types of service models to meet the needs of companies, which are:
- Software as a Service, which consists of using end-user applications, which allow performing any specific function from the Internet, and whose access is through a validation interface with a user account and password. This model includes online email services such as Outlook or Gmail, to name a few. Other massive use services of this model are YouTube or Facebook, among others.
- Platform as a Service, which consists of providing access to an environment for developing and implementing applications of any kind. This model allows organizations to focus on their own development without bearing the costs, physical implementation, and local logic of components of a technology platform. Some of the most known services of this model are Google App Engine, Microsoft Azure, Force.com, etc.
- Infrastructure as a Service, which corresponds to a customized IT infrastructure managed by a service provider, which allows implementing several components to provide one or more customized platforms for developing or implementing internal applications for a company or to provide, in turn, services to customers of such company. Some of the most known in this field are the services provided by Amazon Web Service, Google Cloud Platform, among others.
