Cloud Computing

CLoud Computing Approaches

Public Cloud

Public Cloud Computing refers to public facing business services, from websites, web applications, mobile application backends to infrastructure services. Whether to provide services to end-users or to resell infrastructure services, it will be offered on a Public Cloud infrastructure in most cases.

Most Cloud Computing technologies are pioneered and developed on public cloud environments before being deployed in other, often more complicated ways. From basic virtual server offerings (IaaS) to managed application development environments (PaaS, FaaS), to fully managed cloud applications (SaaS), Coduity has your business covered.

Coduity offers a full range of Cloud Computing infrastructure design and implementation services, ranging from single server deployments to globally distributed multi-cloud server clusters. As with all our solutions, our cloud offerings can be hosted on any cloud provider and easily moved to another at will. We make sure to avoid any proprietary solutions in our designs, so that your cloud infrastructure will literally run anywhere.

Our single server solution can literally be maintained for the price of a monthly cup of coffee, while offering a full suite of cloud computing functionality. Every business or project can get started with Cloud Computing when working with Coduity, no matter the scope, size or budget.

Larger multi-server or multi-cloud deployments powered by Coduity can experience tremendous savings thanks to our support for major cloud vendor APIs. All Cloud Computing deployments powered by Coduity may enjoy enhanced infrastructure scaling, with servers being added and removed on demand. Pay for what is used, not for idling servers that are waiting around for nothing.

Private Cloud

Private Cloud computing by contrast refers to the deployment of cloud technologies for internal, private facing business services. It allows businesses to enjoy fine grained control without large upfront investment when deployed online, or to save on investment and operational cost when deployed on-site thanks to optimised server utilitsation and enhanced scaling. A properly designed and implemented cloud infrastructure can scale to near-zero by powering down hardware when it is not needed.

Private Cloud Computing also offers all the software development and operation benefits of Public Cloud technologies, for internal business facing services. Software development can be greatly simplified while backend and infrastructure concerns become a thing of the past.

Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid Cloud Computing is a set of technologies that allow businesses to mix and match both online and on-site infrastructure in a secure and finely controlled way. It allows business resources to be made available online that are not so easily moved to the cloud, such as mainframe and HPC system resources.

But Hybrid Cloud isn’t just for the Enterprise, it is for businesses of all sizes. Hybrid Cloud can also be instrumental in situations where internet connectivity isn’t always fully stable. With key online hybrid cloud services being kept in sync with smaller scale on-site infrastructure, branch offices and SoHo offices alike can keep accessing crucial business resources until the internet connection is again stable and ready to synchronize. All this and more is readily available in our Hybrid Cloud offerings.

Edge Computing

Edge Computing refers to technologies and design patterns that move server computing closer to the proverbial ’edge’ network. The goal is to reduce latency by moving computing power closer to end-users or to offload on-site networks by decentralising computing power and bringing it closer to IoT devices.

Coduity can help your business to get the most out of Edge Computing services provided by 3rd parties, or by designing and implementing an Edge Computing solution from scratch.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is cloud computing safe?

It is important to remember that cloud computing refers to methods of computing, but it doesn’t change the reality of where and how data is stored. Cloud computing changes the methods of interaction with servers and the way servers are managed. When all is said and done, cloud infrastructure and public infrastructure providers are still very much subject to regional legislation and physical security concerns.

With the exception of private cloud services that are exclusively managed on-site, cloud computing changes nothing regarding matters relating to trust. Regional internet service providers, data centers and governments are ultimately still a concern, but no more than with conventional server technologies. Anything and everything that can be accessed on the internet will need to be secured and monitored constantly, cloud or otherwise.

Is it worth it to deploy a custom cloud solution?

Absolutely, both on- and off site. By limiting 3rd party infrastructure dependencies to the hosting of servers and networks, businesses can ensure their IT platforms remain portable, scalable and predictable. The same holds true for internal cloud services.

Is cloud computing limited to certain platforms?

No, cloud computing solutions can be deployed on a wide variety of operating systems. Cloud computing technologies can be deployed using both open source and proprietary systems alike, although open source UNIX-like solutions such as GNU/Linux and BSD are more often than not at the cutting edge of cloud computing technologies. There is no need for concern regarding platform compatibility.
