Cloud Computing in 2011 [Infographic]

12

Cloud Computing has gained global acceptance in 2-3 short years! Infact, very few actually knew what cloud computing was just 5 years back. But today cloud computing is changing how we build our web applications!

According to a recent numbers published by a survey conducted jointly by BitNami, Cloud.com and Zenoss, show that 80% of the companies today already have a cloud computing strategy or are in planning stages right now!

Cloud computing has become so mainstream that Google recently launched a Mobile device or netbook (or Chromebook) that works only on the cloud using only the Chrome Bowser as the Operating System.

Here at trak.in, we use Cloud to store all our static and image files which ensures that you are able to access them at faster speeds. [We recently switched our DNSes to Cloudflare and it has improved site speeds drastically!]

The survey has come out with an interesting infographic on outlook of Cloud Computing.

I was quite surprised to see a particular number – 66% of users plan to use Microsoft Windows as the Operating System on the cloud !

    This infographic does a fantastic job illustrating the results of the Cloud.com survey.

    I don't quite understand how this is any different from the normal web we are using. I think we are using this technology ever since Hotmail & Yahoo started their e-mail system. We can access all our data from any place on earth (and mind you I've never seen their servers). his technology, I think is no surprise and are just trying to trick people to think that a new invention is taking place and trying to dig into people's pockets by fooling into buying new flashy products thinking they are buying some "cloud".

      James, the point is that now the cloud computing has come to masses. Earlier they used to call server farms (the one Email providers & others use) and those were private clouds. TOday anyone can go and host apps / sites on cloud without much damage to their pockets…thats the only difference

      Then i think there's no harm in upgrading technology as far as it does not harm people's budget 'cause I've seen a report on CNN where young Chinese people sold their kidneys just to buy an iphone4, how sick is that! Any ways Arun that's a good article and very informative too.

    You said -"we use Cloud to store all our static and image files which ensures that you are able to access them at faster speeds."?

    How does it work? Dosent your normal web server has all this?

    1. Arun Prabhudesai says

      Good question praveen. There are couple of things here –

      My server is located in Dallas, Texas… For a person who is browsing trak.in in INdia, Latency is too high so the web pages will load slowly, whereas when I put these files on cloud they are served from the nearest server available from the visitor which reduces the time it takes for you to load the webpage

      Secondly, these cloud environments like Amazon are built to serve files at high speeds, whereas normal servers are either shared or lack resources to serve faster…

      Thirdly, it works out much cheaper as well + plus there is not worry of anything going down…as cloud is alway up :)

      Hope you understand..

      Now I am confused. My understanding to the clound (from the recent apple release iCloud) is that all your data is saved on the internet servers and you can access them from anywhere internet is available. If I take the same logic, I can access your website from anywhere if it is on webserver also. How is different then? Is cloud is new kind of webserver?

    3. Arun Prabhudesai says

      It is more like Farm of webservers which are always near to you built specifically to server data…
