What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud Computing Qatar

Cloud Computing Qatar is the delivery of computing power, database storage, applications, software, analytics, and other IT resources over the internet. A cloud services platform owns and maintains the hardware, while users provision what they need through a web application.

Cloud Computing demand in Qatar covers three primary service areas across public, private and hybrid deployments:

 

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

The most basic type of cloud services, it gives users access to IT infrastructure, including servers, virtual machines, networks, and operating systems

Platform as a Service (PaaS)

Removes the need for users to manage the infrastructure (i.e. hardware, operating systems) and allows users to focus on developing apps and solutions (e.g. Windows in the cloud)

Software as a Service (SaaS)

Provides users with a completed product, with service providers managing all elements of a software app, including the underlying infrastructure and its maintenance (e.g. CRM as a service, email, payroll software)

  • 02

    There are few cloud service providers in Qatar, leaving ample room for new entrants.

  • 03

    The Tasmu Smart Qatar program will rely heavily on harnessing cloud computing technology to translate the creative solutions devised by the program into reality.
