Cloud Computing: Anything as a service

We have already seen what is cloud computing? and few Open source projects for cloud computing.

We are also aware of Infrastructure-as-a-service, Platform-as-a-service, Software-as-a-service that form part of the cloud computing environment.

A few days back, while going through Amazon AWS blogs, I came across the article Virtual Stress-free Testing in the Cloud. I thought it is worth mentioning some context of that article in my blog. In that article, the author has listed few companies that provide software “Testing-as-a-service”. (I don’t want to list those companies here). I really found this concept, Testing-as-a-service, innovative as small and medium scale businesses can effectively benefit those who either couldn’t afford or don’t want to invest in IT infrastructure.

There are also players who provide “Data-as-a-service” and there are few players that provide Security-as-a-service”. As more and more people start to become part of cloud computing, they will start looking for security in cloud space.

So, yesterday I was thinking about possibilities of different services that could be offered as a part of cloud computing. So almost anything which we make part of the cloud computing environment can be offered as a service, I call it Anything-as-a-service. Currently, I am not aware if there are any other terminologies referring to this concept.

Its advantage new ventures, who don’t want to invest significantly in computing hardware and software applications.

So in my view, we are heading towards an IT plug-and-play environment that will dramatically cause the shift in the IT business paradigm.  Just place the order and it will be served to you (in few minutes).  :)
