Cloud computing provides on-demand services over the internet. On-demand services are provided through the internet by cloud computing services. Earlier, when people started doing business, they had a computer in which all the files were stored. But at one point, there was so much data to be stored, so they either had to purchase external hardware or bring other systems that could cost the business extravagant. Furthermore, they had to call for a tech Team to manage those issues.
This could bring the business into huge debt. So, what could be the solution? Imagine if we have such a service that will help store the data and manage and access the data and programs on the remote servers. Well, such services are known as Cloud Computing Services. Cloud computing services offer remote storage that is hosted on the internet instead of a computer or a hard drive, and it can do all the local server or local system work in a different remote machine or remote system
What are the types of Cloud Computing?
Cloud Providers provide cloud computing services. Some common examples of cloud providers include Microsoft Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, and iCloud.
With the help of cloud computing service, we got on-demand services which means getting the services whenever required.
Cloud Computing Types:
- Public Cloud- Accessible to all.
- Private Cloud- Services accessible to employees of a particular company.
- Hybrid Cloud- Consists of features of both public cloud and private cloud.
- Community Cloud- Services accessible by a group of organizations.
Utility Computing Information Technology (IT) is the biggest model in Cloud Computing. The work of Utility computing is to provide storage, computation and programming services via API in whichper user has to pay the number of resources used. Computing Technology is flexible, and also, it’s easy to manage.
What is ESG in Cloud Computing?
ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) term is derived from the “Triple Bottom Line” concept and refers to the three core factors in measuring corporate sustainability. Also, known as (PPP) ‘People, Planet, Profits’, these terms state that a company should focus on each of the three Ps and not just “PROFITS”.
Basically, the acronyms of ESG:
- E- stands for environmental, where you have water usage and production.
- S- stands for Social; it’s around how well you treat your clients and diversity.
- G- stands for Governance; it revolves around a company’s share class structure and government structure.
- ESG is a crucial element that involves regulators, employees, and everyone within the supply chain ecosystem.
Moreover, enterprises are working under pressure to meet the objectives and keep ESG in mind. Though keeping this in mind and constant pressure to put the environment and sustainability in an intense beam of light, IT workers are trying to look out for the need for the cloud to meet the enterprise’s needs while decreasing their impact on the environment.
Cloud computing not only helps to provide the speed to make faster steps to move towards Digital Transformation but also serves in reaching your sustainability goals. The ESG knowledge gap is too wide nowadays. Around 60% of the population do not know an ESG approach to save and invest, and 40% would welcome and support ESG from their advisers. Awareness is equally important as how to start and boost your ESG performance. One can develop an orientation within the organization. It can also create effective communication between internal and external stakeholders.
