Why fiber optic Internet is ideal for Cloud Computing

August 31, 2022 Cloud computing

Cloud Computing is a general term that describes anything that involves delivering hosted services over the Internet - storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet, instead of your computer's hard drive.

Cloud Computing enables businesses to use services and software without having to build, run and maintain the servers in-house.

Migrating to a Cloud infrastructure

When migrating to a cloud computing infrastructure, organizations need to ensure their Internet connection can keep up, by finding the right business Internet service provider that’s able to deliver the type of fiber Wide Area Network suited for this architecture. It is equally important to ensure your service backup is similarly robust in the event of line failure.

Datacenters also need to meet these challenging data increases in requirements by utilizing advanced fiber optic cabling in core network functions, backhaul systems, and storage arrays, which will deliver reliability and scale-ability without giving up density. In addition, choosing appropiate media conversion tools will enable them to change between fiber and copper freely.

How does Cloud Computing work?

Cloud computing consists of layers. The front end, which you as a consumer interact with, requires a computer and the applications necessary to access the cloud.

Next, is the back-end. These are the computers, servers, and data storage systems that drive the interface you see at the front end. Cloud computing includes IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), and SaaS (Software as a Service) as the layers of services.

IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service): Allows access to storage and computing power through a web-based system.

PaaS (Platform as a Service): PaaS is a framework that developers can build upon to develop or customize applications cost-effectively.

SaaS (Software as a Service): These applications are accessible from various client devices through a client interface, such as a web browser like Google Apps, Twitter, and Facebook. You don’t need to install the software to use it, although some do require a plugin.

Cloud Computing efficiency and performance depends on your Internet connection

As an Internet-based server layer, cloud computing efficiency, and performance depends on your Internet connection. Without enough bandwidth, cloud computing would be impossible.

For business operations with data stored in the cloud, Internet connections need to be high-speed, reliable, and flexible in order to allow computer resources to be easily distributed. Therefore, optical fiber Internet is essential for cloud computing architectures as bandwidth requirements increase.
