Benefits of cloud computing software development
Leading cloud providers ensure that your resources in the cloud stay protected from cybersecurity threats by establishing policies, data privacy standards, and sticking to compliance requirements. Together with built-in solutions such as authentication, encryption, firewalls, and security monitoring tools, these measures reduce the risk of a breach in the cloud compared to on-premise.
The factor that makes cloud computing more cost-effective than on-premises data centers is the pay-as-you-go model, which allows you to pay only for the resources your business needs at the moment. No additional infrastructure investments, hardware maintenance costs, manual backups, software updates or other time-consuming IT management tasks can translate to further savings.
In the cloud, it’s possible to automatically add or remove resources, scaling the capacity both vertically (in terms of CPU speed and memory) and horizontally (by adding more servers). This means you can easily improve the performance of your application when it’s being heavily used, without having to pay for extra resources when additional computing power or bandwidth are no longer necessary.
Reliability and high availability
Cloud computing services ensure business continuity and make your company resistant to unexpected events using automated data backups, replication, and disaster recovery. Your data is deployed to multiple data centers in different zones, which boosts both business resiliency and resources availability: most providers guarantee 99.999% uptime, which translates to only five minutes per year when services are unavailable!
Main public cloud providers
Amazon Web Services
Amazon’s cloud platform holds the major market share and is the leader in IaaS and PaaS. It’s often chosen by companies looking for infallible database storage, compute power, networking, and content delivery, among many other cloud services.
Positioned in Gartner’s Leaders Magic Quadrant for cloud infrastructure, Microsoft’s cloud computing service is another widely used option that supports a broad range of tools, programming languages, frameworks, databases, and operating systems.
With 24 cloud regions and availability in 200 countries (and counting!), Google Cloud continues its expansion across industries, including financial services. The third major player in the market takes the biggest pride in its advanced data analytics innovations.
Cloud computing types: what are your options?
Software as a Service
In the SaaS model, companies and users gain access to even the most sophisticated applications without having to deal with installation, updates, hardware or maintenance. Software can be accessed directly from browsers on different devices, which makes it a perfect solution for remote work environment.
Platform as a Service
Created primarily for developers, PaaS solutions provide a complete set of development and deployment tools in the cloud, as well as infrastructure (servers, storage, and networking security). However, there are more possibilities than just cloud infrastructure: good examples are AI, data analysis, and IoT services.
Infrastructure as a Service
IaaS solves many infrastructure problems tech businesses encounter, like buying, setting up, securing or maintaining physical servers. Cloud providers take care of all these mundane tasks, freeing up IT staff to focus on core business, and charging just a fraction of the cost of a traditional on-premise infrastructure setup.
Private finance assistant that runs on the cloud
NoMo is the simplest and coolest cash-flow app you can imagine! Keeping personal finances under control without going through bank statements and multiple account balances is possible thanks to integrations with a number of top-tier and challenger UK banks.
Code & Pepper was responsible for refactoring the iOS app code: the back-end in Java was rewritten in C# and .NET Core. The application was then deployed to the cloud using hexagonal architecture in Microsoft Azure. Other cloud services adopted in the project include: Azure App Service, SQL database, Application Insights, and Docker. The Azure Notification Hub allows for sending push notifications, keeping users up to date with their current cash-flow and communicating in the style of their choice: either friendly, cheeky or motivating!
