The history of cloud computing dates back to 1960 and was limited at that time to census data and financial transaction processing, but its actual development in the form we know it began in 1999 when Salesforce enabled the possibility of submitting orders electronically.
Cloud computing services and applications have evolved to provide companies with spaces in cyberspace where they can store and retain their data without the need for physical servers or data centers, especially with the launch of Amazon’s cloud in 2002 and then the giants of global companies such as Microsoft and others.
Since then, cloud computing services have become a necessary option for companies seeking to start their digital transformation journey and reshape their processes to keep pace with the global technological revolution.
The Importance of cloud computing for companies and businesses
The development of companies’ businesses means more files and data that in turn need larger and more secure spaces to store these files and provide access to them for employees and workers in these companies.
And with the challenges imposed by the Corona pandemic and then the emergence and development of the concept of working from home, the need became great to find secure storage spaces that can be accessed at any time, and from here comes the importance of cloud computing and its applications, especially as it handles huge databases using integrated operating systems at any time through a device connected to the Internet.
This falls under the most important features of cloud computing, as it enabled companies to save operational costs associated with data storage centers and physical servers, as well as adding more smoothness to the work mechanism by avoiding the challenges associated with storing files and accessing them from anywhere.
How can companies benefit from cloud computing
Types of cloud computing are divided into public cloud, which includes services that are provided over public Internet networks, private cloud, which includes those that are provided over private Internet networks for the company, and hybrid, which combines the previous two types.
The use cases of cloud computing in companies vary to include each of the following:
1- Keeping a backup copy of the data.
2- Providing virtual environments for desktop devices.
3- Developing work programs through data analysis and processing capabilities provided by cloud computing services.
4- Detecting and preventing fraudulent operations in real time.
And the advantages of cloud computing include each of the following:
1. Cost saving: Companies can save costs by avoiding the need to buy and maintain their own hardware and software.
2. Increasing development: Cloud computing is highly scalable, allowing companies to develop the way they work continuously.
3. Flexibility: Cloud computing can help companies be more flexible and responsive to change, as new applications and services can be deployed quickly without the need to invest in new infrastructure.
4. Reliability: Cloud computing is very reliable, with many guarantees of 99.99% uptime. This means that companies can be confident that their applications and data are available when needed, in addition to ensuring data security.
The transformation of more companies to the cloud will lead to achieving the digital transformation revolution at a faster pace, and cloud computing applications may include the transformation to smart cities.
