Cloud Computing Services

Cloud Computing Services

Cloud computing is fundamentally about the delivery of computing services, platforms, and infrastructures using the Internet rather than designing, building, and operating and maintaining enterprise information systems on premises.

Discuss how an employer could use cloud computing services. Frame your discussion in terms of software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or anything as a service (XaaS). Be sure to explicitly discuss which of an organization’s business processes are supported by a cloud deployment, such as how the cloud deployment serves the organization’s strategic business goals.

Finally, please explore the availability, reliability, and performance metrics that you think need to be measured to ensure that an organization is properly managing its cloud deployment.
