Cloud provider

What is a cloud provider?
Ein Cloud-Anbieter ist ein Unternehmen, das Cloud-Computing-basierte Dienste und Lösungen für Unternehmen und / oder Einzelpersonen bereitstellt. Diese Serviceorganisation kann gemietete und Anbieter-verwaltete virtuelle Hardware, Software, Infrastruktur und andere damit verbundene Dienste bereitstellen. Cloud services werden für Unternehmen immer begehrenswerter, weil sie Vorteile in Bezug auf Kosten, Skalierbarkeit und Zugänglichkeit bieten.

A cloud provider is also known as a utility computing provider. This role is usually linked to that of a Managed Service Provider (MSP). However, the latter usually offers other managed IT solutions.

Cloud providers are typically organizations that provide some type of IT infrastructure that is sold commercially and distributed across multiple subscribers - usually companies. Cloud providers deliver cloud solutions via on-demand pay-as-you-go systems as a service for customers and end users. Cloud provider customers access cloud resources through internet and programmatic access and are only charged for resources and services that are used according to a subscribed billing method.

Depending on the business model, a cloud provider can offer different solutions, such as:

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS): May include virtual servers, virtual storage, and virtual desktops / computers

Software as a Service (SaaS): Delivery of simple to complex software via the Internet

Platform as a Service (PaaS): A combination of IaaS and SaaS that is provided as a unified service

A cloud provider can also be classified as a public cloud provider, private cloud provider, hybrid cloud provider, or community cloud provider.
