Through this Eureka video on “Introduction to Cloud”, you will be able to understand in-depth about the basics of cloud computing as well as about the various kinds of cloud providers. In addition, you will also come to know about the cloud service models as well.
At the end of the video, you will also find a neat demo on how to use the various resources present at the Amazon Web Services (AWS). At 3:24, it is briefed that with cloud, one need not worry about the cost and space involved in storing really huge amounts of data. It is also made clear that there is no need to worry about the less space in your hard drive as the cloud system will be sufficient to store all your data without any chaos.
Service and Deployment Cloud Models
At 6:01, the clear definition of the cloud system is provided. The cloud system is defined as the one that is helpful in the storing of data or applications on all kinds of remote servers. At 6:22, it is also mentioned that the cloud system would also help in the processing of data or applications from the servers and also in accessing the data through the internet.
At:7:08, brief information about the service models is provided to ensure that people know about the various cloud service models. At 7:46, the three major service models namely, Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), Platform as a service (PaaS) and Software as a service (SaaS) are briefed.
Generally, the cloud provider would be leasing the applications or the software which are owned to its client. This would be a great example of SaaS. At 8:59, on the PaaS front, the cloud system would not have any control over the underlying architecture like servers or storage. Whereas, on the IaaS front, the cloud system will be able to provide any kind of virtualized computing resources. At 11:53, a very important topic, namely the deployment models is dealt with.
The models include the public cloud, private cloud, and the hybrid cloud. The public cloud is mentioned as a service provider that makes resources to the public through the internet. At 12:41, the private cloud deployment model is the one that offers the hosted services to fewer people behind the firewall.
Amazon Web Services Cloud Compute
At 13:10, the hybrid cloud system is mentioned as the one which uses a complete mix of the on-premises, private cloud and also public cloud services. At 13:23, information about the prominent cloud providers are mentioned. Some of the prominent cloud providers include Google Cloud Platform, DigitalOcean, IBM Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, etc.
At 18.28, a small demo on how to operate the AWS free tier products is provided so that people get hands-on experience with the AWS platforms. At 20.17, it is mentioned that the AWS Compute cloud can be used for 750 hours per month.
Through this video, you will come to know about the need of the cloud system, the different services and deployment models and the providers
