Cloud computing itself refers to an approach where computational power comes from a supplier with enormous
Benefits of cloud computing
Cloud computing decrease the cost of service
Cloud Computing giants can leverage and share vast amounts of computational power from data centres compared to traditional computation service providers. Moreover, these giants, like Azure and AWS, minimize their resources' idle time, thus offering a significantly lower cost for capacity than the situation where everyone has their hardware. When doing things "big," these cloud vendors make essential things like security and availability affordable to smaller customers and players like SaaS providers.
All modern integration platforms (iPaaS) run their core in the CloudCloud. For example, Frends is available in Azure and European Compliant Cloud Cleura.
Cloud computing eases Maintenance and Management
Instead of managing, updating and maintaining the underlining infrastructure by the actual consumers of computational power, that burden is taken care of entirely by the Cloud Computing service provider.
Having someone else to take care of essential infra is also quite attractive to the consumer of the services. They do not need to maintain an expensive skillset of infrastructure know-how to provide the same services effectively.
An integration platform as a service (iPaaS) is a basic use case for Cloud Computing. Hence, Cloud offers an easily manageable and scalable environment for integration platforms.
Agile and cost-effective software development
Cloud computational services typically allow developers to programmatically deploy new resources and manage, for example, scaling on the fly. This programmatic approach enables developers to have the same environment regardless of data centre and provider, which minimizes typical problems that occur in more traditional computational environments as each environment is slightly different from one another.
