Hey, everyone, welcome back to the course in this video. We're to talk about some of the cloud computing services that are available.
So we got many services like Softwares, a service platform as a service infrastructure, as a service
network, as a service and security as a service. And we'll talk about each one of these a little bit. So let's start with software as a service.
So basically, this is software on demand, right? Software as a service on demand. Eso this office us a subscription type of service where the provider is providing the maintenance and security for it.
this could be something like a go to meeting,
which is hosted online. Could be something like your dropbox, your Microsoft office suite or one drive could be like your your zoom, your Cisco WebEx. So all sorts of things that even the Google laps, right? So things that you may or may not pay a monthly service for right, they usually have a free option. But,
you know, typically pay some kind of a monthly,
uh, payment to those and then you don't have to do anything, but just use it, right. So, like your Google maps. For example, All you have to do is use your Gmail for your business, or you just have to upload your files. You don't have to do any of the actual configuration stuff on your end
infrastructure as a service. So this is where we're talking about the service provider, providing us things like virtual ization of underlying network infrastructure that, you know, could be things like physical computing. Could be, uh, physical computing. Resource is could be things like data participate, partitioning
security backups, eso They're kind of just providing that network infrastructure for us.
Next, we have platform as a service, So this is basically a platform for development that's offered a subscription subscription basis
and, essentially, the providers giving us a set of development tools. So again, if we want to go ahead and to scale up or down our whatever products were working on and develop them, we could do so. So this could be things like Azure offers this type of service until mash maker,
the Google App engine is another one allows us has a development team to be very, very fast at developing APS and then scaling back as we don't actually need them.
Then we have Our network is a service. So this is where clients will have access to additional network. Resource is so it might be things like switches and routers, and the third party provider actually owns those devices, but they provide that to the organization. Could be through a fixed fee. Could be also ah, component wise fees. So based off
how many switches I get on my pay a fee or
they just charged me x amount of dollars and I get up to, let's just say, 100 new switches
and then we have our security as a service.
So this is just our security solutions. In the cloud right are cloud based security solutions. This basically eliminates the need for you to have that on premise Hardware, which gives you predictable or more predictable cost, also gives you that manage security. So thinking through from like a DDOs attack mitigation standpoint,
places like Cloudflare right, they as if I've got a website,
I can run it through Cloudflare and they'll offer a measure of protection against DDOS attacks. So it'll go through there
systems first, right, so to go through their security systems first toe identify is this Adidas attack, and then the traffic will come to my website. Other things like cloud break or in capsule A as well.
So a quick quiz question here which service helps developers build APS faster, is as soft as a service platform as a service or infrastructure as a service.
All right, so if you guess the platform as a service, you are correct.
So in this video, we just talked about some of the different types of cloud computing services available.
