“I can get to server faster, if I have non-connected computers in byzantine “(Steve Jobs).

The cloud computing is further divided into three main working structures i.e.

1. IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)

2. PaaS(Platform as a Service)

3. SaaS(Software as a Service)


It is a scalable and automated type of service. IaaS is a self-service best for storage, monitoring computer networking, and other services. It’s most suitable if one wants to purchase on-demand resources instead of struggling with the hardware equipment. It is a ‘virtual cloud’ like service.

It’s the most suitable for small businesses and has these advantages;

· Flexible computing

· Automate deployment of resources

It is an application-based service that mainly provides customized applications that are being controlled by the third party i.e. software owner. It’s a network system entirely over the web thus reduce the problem of storage and updates. As a “Public Cloud Service, “ it allows us to access various developers and integrates databases.
