Cloud computing

Cloud computing includes all of the on-demand computing services, such as data storage, offered via the Internet from anywhere and based on multiple large data centers.

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing is a modern distributed form of computing services. Cloud providers own large data centers and then provide a portion of that computing power as a service via the Internet. This allows individuals to quickly scale up and down their computing use based on dynamic demand requirements.

Some popular cloud computing services include:

  1. Amazon Web Services
  2. Microsoft Azure
  3. Google Cloud
  4. IBM Cloud
  5. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
  6. CloudLinux

Cloud computing also encompasses all of the different software as a service (SaaS) offerings available. This includes the video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) offering provided by Solink.

Why is cloud computing important?

Cloud computing is central to many modern technologies. It not only helps new tech startups scale their businesses quickly, but cloud computing also helps them render their services to customers.

Take Solink as an example. Solink stores video and POS data in the cloud and analyzes that data to provide valuable insights to our customers.

From our earliest features, which are constantly evolving, to the newest ones (and others coming soon), Solink utilizes cloud computing.
