What is Cloud Computing?

In this article, I will talk about basic information about Cloud Computing, its advantages, disadvantages and usage models.

Cloud Computing or Cloud Computing are all services that you can easily access to these information, data and programs through your devices in any environment where you have all applications, programs and data stored in a virtual server or cloud.

What does cloud computing mean?
We can say that storing data on our Hard Drives is stored on virtual servers in the internet environment. Cloud Computing provides us with a number of possibilities for more storage space, faster data transfer, and cost savings. We can add workforce savings within big companies. For example, many of the data on social networks we use today (videos, music, photos, etc.) are stored in their own clouds. In this context, we indirectly use Cloud Computing in everyday life.

What are the disadvantages of Cloud Computing?
In order to be able to access our stored data in the virtual environment, it is necessary to have an internet connection, which means that it is not possible to access our information without internet. If you have a low-speed internete depending on the internet, your data exchange rate will be slower at that point. One of the biggest disadvantages that confuse everyone's mind is security vulnerabilities. There are also possibilities for malicious people to capture our data stored in virtual servers.

Best practices for cloud storage services include:
Dropbox (
Google Drive (
SkyDrive (
ICloud (
Yandex.Disk (
Turkcell Smart Bulut (
TTNET Bulut (
Ubuntu One (
There are various models, types and structures of Cloud Computing. There are 4 different types of Cloud Computing, let's try to explain them under the headings.

Public Cloud:
In Public Cloud, we build our own structure (general structure, system) by making use of it. So this means that we are renting the structure on a third company and we are building on resources. As an example, we may show electronic mail that we use. We use various features of these e-mails without paying any money. We can use this type in small and medium-sized companies. In the Public Cloud, you are paying so much, basically just how much you are using.

Private Cloud:
Private Cloud is the type of cloud technology preferred by larger companies and more important companies. For example, we can show you the Hyper - V and System Center products offered by Microsoft. Because Private Cloud is a personal building, all information is under our gratification.

Hybrid Cloud:
Hybrid Cloud Public and Private Cloud. Private Cloud technology is used where security and confidentiality are more important and where caution needs to be kept high, but it is more logical to use the Public Cloud in areas where the above security measures can be kept at a lower level. Their integration depends on the size of the

Community Cloud:
As we shall briefly mention this type, the first thing we need to mention is that it is not a very popular type of cloud technology. We can explain Community Cloud technology as follows:
If we use any service we have on the cloud with a few companies, this is called Community Cloud.
