The Rise of Cloud Computing in Manufacturing


The Rise of Cloud Computing in Manufacturing

What is cloud computing?

The on-demand, pay-as-you-go delivery of IT resources through the Internet is known as cloud computing.

You can acquire technology services from a cloud provider on an as-needed basis, such as computing power, storage, and databases, rather than purchasing, owning, and maintaining physical data centers and servers.

In this article, we’ll look at key trends, things to think about, and best practices for manufacturers transitioning to the cloud as well as how cloud-based solutions facilitate digital transformation.

There are three primary forms of cloud computing: Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (Paas), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

The Rise of Cloud Computing in Manufacturing

SaaS: Software that is hosted by the provider and made available online is referred to as software as a service.

Users can access their accounts from any location with an internet connection because the majority of SaaS is licensed through a subscription basis (and in many cases, offline as well).

PaaS: Customers can design, develop, and deploy unique apps using PaaS capabilities. Simply put, PaaS is software that creates more software.

The licensing company provides a development environment and a specific underlying infrastructure using PaaS.

IaaS: IaaS allows businesses to buy access to compute and storage resources. Customers can get the infrastructure they need to support larger digital initiatives from providers like AWS and Microsoft Azure.
