solutions cloud diagram

In basic terms, cloud computing refers to the different scenarios in which an IT resource is delivered as a service over the Internet. This type of computing relies on a shared pool of physical and/or virtual resources, including networking, storage and business applications rather than deploying local/onsite hardware and software.

We're providing you with brief descriptions of key cloud computing terms. During discussions with a Zones cloud solution specialist, you'll have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about key characteristics and business advantages of cloud computing.

Infrastructure and Business Continuity icon

Infrastructure and Business Continuity

When a third-party provider hosts virtualised computing resources over the Internet, it is known as Infrastructure-as-a-Service. When people refer to infrastructure in relation to the cloud, they are often thinking of compute and storage.

When speaking about as-a-service offerings, such as IaaS, one of the most common is Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service or DRaaS. This is the replication and hosting of physical and/or virtual servers to provide failover in the event of a disaster. Disaster Recovery is part of Business Continuity, which is an organisation's ability to continue operating despite serious incidents or disasters that might otherwise have interrupted them or to recover to an operational state within a reasonably short period of time. Backup and archiving also fall under Business Continuity.

Applications fall under the larger umbrella of Software-as-a-Service.
