In the past 5 years, Information Technology (IT) has embarked on the latest model — cloud computing. Though cloud computing is merely a different way to provide computer resources, instead of a new technology, it has offered a revolution in a way organizations provide information and service.
Earlier IT was dominated by mainframe computing. This firm design eventually gave way to the client-server model. The latest information technology increasingly a function of mobile technology, persistent or standard computing, also called, cloud computing. However, this revolution is similar to every revolution, which consists components of the past technology from which it evolved.
What is cloud computing?
Cloud computing is a complete solution that offers IT as a service. It is a Web-based computing solution in which shared resources are provided, such as electricity distributed on the electrical grid. Computer systems in the cloud are designed to collaborate with the various applications using common computing power like they are running on a single server.
The portability of cloud computing is a function of the distribution of resources on demand. This enables the use of the system’s cumulative resources, and automatically reducing the need to allocate specific hardware to a job. Before cloud computing, websites and server-based programs were executed on a particular system. With the arrival of cloud computing, resources are used as an assembled virtual computer. This assembled design provides an environment in which applications execute separately without regard for any particular configuration.
What is IBM cloud?
IBM Cloud services is a suite of cloud computing services from IBM that provides both the platforms as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

For compute, companies can choose between bare-metal or virtual servers.
With IBM Cloud PaaS ﹘ which is often based on the open source cloud platform. Cloud Foundry ﹘ developers can use IBM services to create, manage, run and deploy various types of programs for the public cloud, as well as for local or on-premises environments. IBM Cloud services facilitate numerous programming languages, like Java, Node.JS, PHP and Python and also extends to support other languages
IBM Cloud services platform supports accessibility to other IBM tools and services ﹘ such as IBM Watson and IBM Cloud Functions for server less computing ﹘ as well as those from third-party vendors.

What is IaaS, PaaS & SaaS?
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is a type of cloud computing that gives visualized computing resources through the internet. IaaS is one among the three main categories of cloud computing services, with software as a service (SaaS ) and platform as a service (PaaS).
In an IaaS type, a cloud service provider hosts the infrastructure components normally present in an on-premises data center, along with servers, storage and networking hardware, as well as the virtualization or hypervisor layer.
Platform as a service (PaaS) is a cloud computing model where a third-party cloud service provider delivers hardware and software tools ﹘ generally those required for application development ﹘ to users over the internet. The PaaS service provider hosts the hardware and software on its own infrastructure. Subsequently, PaaS frees users from the necessity to install in-house hardware and software to develop or run a new application.
Software as a service (SaaS) is a software distribution model where a third-party cloud service provider hosts applications and makes them accessible to users over the Internet.
