The cloud computing service is delivered over the internet and can be either a shared (public) service or a dedicated (private) service or as a mixture of the two - as a hybrid service. The advantage of cloud services are that they are scalable and can be provided on a per user basis with IT being used as a service. Administrators can monitor usage via an online dashboard, which can be used to monitor service utilisation and also enforce a Service Level Agreement (SLA). Browse Detail Report With TOC @ The development of cloud computing services Cloud computing services started to be introduced initially as a stand alone IT hosted service, but increasingly the concept of the cloud with shared services in the cloud being delivered at a reduced cost - is increasingly being applied across all IT segments and is being integrated with the Data Centre, networks, mobility, apps and other hosted services. Cloud computing service development mirrors the development in IT services as a whole and is based on </p></li><li><p>Market Reports Center One Stop Market Reaserch Shop two key new trends the widespread adoption of web access and services and the growth in virtualisation of CPU, memory and storage services. The two trends have reduced the cost of providing virtualised IT services and have enabled virtualised services to be distributed in all regions of the world via the internet. Virtualisation the growth of virtualisation has allowed enterprises to share IT components more efficiently at a lower cost than the purchase of dedicated hardware Web Access the growth of web access worldwide and a decline in pricing has allowed enterprises to access virtualised services and applications on an on demand basis Other reasons for the increase in cloud computing services include workflow automation, the commoditisation of hardware, open source software, service orientated architecture and the automation of technical management. Cloud computing providers are entering the market for the provision of Pay-As-You-Go cloud computing services from four distinct areas including: IT services provision with IT service providers IBM, HP &amp; Dell now all offering cloud services. Hosting services provision with hosting providers such as OVH offering cloud services. Professional services provision with consulting providers such as Accenture offering cloud platforms. Software services provision with software providers such as Microsoft, SAP &amp; Oracle offering cloud platforms sometimes in partnership with other cloud providers (such as AWS). Telecoms services provision with telecoms providers such as AT&amp;T, SingTel, Verizon &amp; Vodafone offering cloud services. The five categories of cloud computing market entrant are shown in the Figure below: Figure 1 A chart showing the five types of cloud computing provider market entrant Source TCL Telecoms providers all over the world continue to introduce cloud computing services. For example, in March 2014 Sri Lanka Telecom (SRT) introduced akaza, a new brand for SRT s IaaS platform to provide shared computing power, storage and bandwidth, offering optional firewalls and load balancing services. SRT also claims that it intends to introduce PaaS (Platform as a Service), SaaS (Software as a Service) and DaaS (Desktop as a Service) services in the future.

For example A number of telecoms providers offering Pay-As-You-Go storage services are buying white label products from CTERA Networks A number of providers are purchasing virtualisation software from VMware as the basis of their cloud computing service To address the SME segment providers are reselling Microsoft services such as Office365 or Hosted Exchange A number of software and IT integrators such as Citrix and Accenture are providing packaged services based on the Amazon EC2 platform (although not as an exclusive agreement) Cloud computing started as a service in the late 2000s as a form of hosting and virtualised technology, but has now been transformed to become a mainstream business model and a generic term rather than a specific technology. Cloud computing services can be used by developers to support new applications and by enterprises to cater for existing applications. Cloud computing services are accessed via the internet. Cloud computing services are seen as being scalable and are available on a Pay-As-You-Go basis. They are distinct from existing IT infrastructure, which has an additional burden of a relatively high set up cost including high capex costs - and a lack of scalability when compared with a cloud computing service. And a Pay-As-You-Go IT service has grown in popularity and has become established among large enterprises. For example, AWS (Amazon Web Services) claims that some 300 Government departments worldwide are using its cloud computing service. AWS through its Amazon EC2 service remains the largest cloud computing provider with several times the computing power of its closest competitors. Although cloud computing is seen as being a low cost </p></li><li><p>Market Reports Center One Stop Market Reaserch Shop way of providing IT services, its main attribute remains ease of use with enterprises using the cloud to cater for specific IT projects or applications. The report considers the three types of cloud computing services, Public Clouds, Private Clouds &amp; Hybrid Clouds and associated trends in pricing for each type. Public cloud computing services are highly standardised and are highly automated with a web-based User Interface (UI) or Application Programming Interface (API). Private cloud computing services are designed for the enterprise, offering dedicated resources with a greater level of security. Hybrid cloud computing services provide a mixture of dedicated resources and shared use for enterprises. Increasingly enterprises are seeking to develop a hybrid cloud computing model and are considering how to access information that may be contained in multiple clouds and how to interconnect the different clouds of partners, suppliers or customers.
