Cloud Computing – are you hearing it in many places? oh…lot of people talking about it right? what’s does that mean? is it so easy or very complex? if you are confused, just continue to read this article, it may give you better understanding of cloud computing but not make you an expert though our institutes will make you an expert in this field – the happening career.

In Simple words, you as a company or individual don’t need to buy any Hardware, software and infrastructure. Everything required for an application to run is put on Net [Cloud], as a user, you just go and register your license and start using it. No need to have any infrastructure at your location, no need to buy software. The company who provide service will take of care of all the hardware, software, infrastructure management. No worriers for you, just pay for what you have used or metered. Just like electricity in India.

As per Dave Nielsen, the co-founder of Cloud-Camp, says that – For something to be called cloud, it should have the below properties :

a) Hosted by someone else
b)On-demand: Do not have to wait or call somebody to get it.
c)Metered somehow: So you know exactly how much you are using and how much you are paying.
d) Scalable, both ways – up and down as and when you require.

Cloud could mean different things for different people. Here area few examples stating what cloud is for a particular person :

For an IT person Cloud means Infrastructure as Service
For a Web Developer, it’s a Platform. Just dump your code and don’t worry what runs it.
For a Business professional it’s SaaS (Software as a Service)

So cloud is basically having the infrastructure to do what you do hosted by someone else and having it totally scalable. For example, in the above list, for a web developer cloud is a platform where he can dump his code and expect it to run as he has designed it. He does not worry about the machines, the network connectivity, the bandwidth. He just pays for those in a metered. He can scale his platform whenever required by increasing the bandwidth, upgraded hardware version or more machines – all can be done without the help of customer service or sales.

Job Opportunities and Scope in Cloud Computing

As can be seen from past experience, a new technology brings in new career opportunities and also makes old technologies redundant, you can expect the same from Cloud Computing.

Google, Amazon, Microsoft have already initiated efforts in Cloud Computing and are betting big on its success and eventual adoption.

If you look at job postings you’ll come to know that there’s no rocket science involved for this technology, what is required are professionals who understand enterprise networking, security and virtualization aspects. Cloud platform is a new architecture, the underlying technologies for its usage are already existing. Likewise, for software developers, .NET or Java, the development requirements for building the application would remain the same, the only change would be that they have to re-engineer their applications as per Cloud’s Architecture.
