The Cloud

Cloud-based technology is a very innovative WAN technology. Cloud is changing the way regular WANs are used world-wide. Organizations usually use cloud-based networking as a way to increase capacity and enhance functionality. This way they won’t have to commit to the expensive infrastructure costs of WANs. The cloud also gives you the capability to launch service from a remote area that can be securely accessed and used globally via internet access. Many people prefer the cloud-based technology because it does not require any additional software for you to purchase. The cloud is inexpensive compared to the normal WANs. Some of the benefits you get by using the cloud are pay-as-you-go service.


You can also deploy data in just minutes to anywhere across the globe. The cloud is making it very possible for smaller businesses to have enterprise-class apps, as well as storage, and computing for a more affordable price. Another benefit to the cloud-based technology is that it only requires an internet connection. It also works on any physical infrastructure. The cloud network is very close to resembling VPNs. VPN stands for virtual private network. This sort of private network enables you to access files, data, and even printers securely from anywhere in the world from any device of your choice.


Cloud networks are multi-tenant private virtual networks that circle the internet. Each virtual cloud network provides connectivity to any server, computer, and mobile device. Using the cloud network it is much easier for you to market distributed enterprise networks. This kind of network will give you enterprise-class abilities worldwide. The cloud is reinventing what WANs are normally programed to do. Two important changes that the cloud has made are how distributed networks are managed and how they are delivered. The first change that the cloud has made is a software-as-a-service approach. Management consoles and device configuration screens can be accessed through browsers. Web APIs is also used to push for changes to remote network equipment. This is called cloud-enabled networks. This was engineered by wireless LAN vendors. Their goal was to configure and administrate many distributed access points.
