1. What do cloud service providers do?
Cloud service providers offer cloud-based platforms, applications, infrastructure, and storage services adjusted to individuals and businesses. Cloud services are inclusive of software, referred to as SaaS (Software as a Service), a computing platform for hosting or developing applications, referred to as PaaS (Platform as a Service), or an entire computing or networking infrastructure, referred to as IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service). Cloud service providers host these services in a data center that can be accessed by individuals or companies with network connectivity. The benefits of cloud and service providers come in economies of scale and efficiency. Instead of companies and individuals building their infrastructure for supporting internal software, applications and services, they can buy such services from the cloud service providers, who assist multiple customers through one shared infrastructure. Robust cloud service provider solutions help increase efficiency, reduce cycle time, lower costs, and manage risk throughout your business.
