Cloud infrastructure refers to back-end elements that consolidate hardware and software components like servers, storage, network, virtual machines, multi-sockets, LAN (switches and routers) and cloud infra management tools that support computing operations of any cloud computing platform. All these components are hosted by a service provider and delivered to users over the web

It also consists of a hardware abstraction layer that enables virtualization of resources and services to users via Application program interface (API) /API enabled command /graphical interfaces to drive advantages with efficient production.
The preceding advancements in the cloud computing model have changed the way most organizations manage their infrastructure and resources. Traditionally, enterprises are exhausting themselves to create their own on-prem IT infrastructure which has created numerous bottlenecks such as:

  • Renting a data centre
  • Huge machine costs and 
  • Training people to develop and maintain applications. 

These strains have become cost-prohibitive for medium and small-sized organizations.

Hence, Cloud infrastructure is an alternative for enterprises to access data storage and computing capabilities as per their need with considerably reduced cost. So, instead of investing time and efforts in creating on-prem IT infrastructure, an organization can lease a cloud infrastructure and its associated elements and capabilities from the top and reliable cloud service providers such as Alibaba, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform or Microsoft Azure. This will reduce the company’s upfront cost investments with a pay-as-you-use facility and the complexity of owning and maintaining their own IT infrastructure. In return, cloud computing services providers can benefit from cost-saving and competitive advantages by delivering the same services to a wide range of customers.

How does cloud infrastructure works?

To understand the functions of cloud infrastructure, it can be divided into front=end and back-end which are connected through a network. Where the front end is on the side of the computer user or client that allows the user to access data stored in the cloud using an internet browser or cloud software. Whereas, at the backend, there are various computers, servers and data storage systems, databases and central servers which are the primary components of cloud computing 

The central server supports operations by following a set of rules called protocols. It uses software, middleware, to ensure seamless connectivity between devices/computers connected through cloud computing. Cloud computing service providers usually maintain multiple copies of the data to lessen the chances of security threats, data loss, data breach, etc.

Benefits of Cloud Infrastructure:

  1. Cost Savings
  2. Security
  3. Flexibility
  4. Mobility
  5. Insight
  6. Increased Collaboration
  7. Quality Control
  8. Disaster Recovery
  9. Loss Prevention
  10. Automatic Software Updates
  11. Competitive Edge
  12. Sustainability
