Let’s start 2022 by going over the cloud adoption statistics among EU enterprises in 2021. The adoption of cloud computing in Europe has increased 5 percentage points (pp) compared to 2020, according to Eurostat. 41% of EU enterprises used cloud computing in 2021 — which is more than twice the percentage of use from five
In this post we want to collect the most common terms in cloud computing; from basic concepts such as the main cloud service models and types of cloud to more specialized concepts related to cloud computing. Let’s start from the beginning… What is cloud computing? Cloud computing is a computing resources and services distribution model
In this article we are going to present the main types of cloud computing: Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud and Multicloud. Cloud computing has radically changed the traditional IT services model. This shift entails challenges but also numerous advantages. That is why a growing number of companies have been and still are adopting cloud
IaaS, PaaS and SaaS are the main three cloud computing service models. Each cloud service model covers different user and company needs, and provides a different level of control, security and scalability. IaaS, PaaS and Saas There is no one-size-fits-all cloud service model for every business. The right cloud computing model will depend on how

Cascade Lake is the former name of the 2nd generation of Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors. This generation includes many improvements in terms of speed, security, performance and efficiency. Intel®’s Cascade Lake microarchitecture features Cascade Lake is the codename
It has been fifty years since the release of the FTP protocol. FTP (File Transfer Protocol) dates from April, 1971 (RFC 114). Its original specification was written by computer scientist Abhay Bhushhan. After half a century of its release, the FTP protocol remains widely used and has millions of FTP servers all over the world.
A Private Cloud is a cloud environment where the computing resources are exclusively dedicated to one organization. As opposed to the Public Cloud, resources are not shared with other customers and, therefore, companies maintain greater control over the performance of their virtualized IT infrastructure. Private Clouds are ideal for any type of businesses and projects.
A Data Center or Internet Data Center is a facility where an organization or a service provider centralizes their necessary computing resources. You might have heard about it a lot lately, since the term Data Center has become very common. Nowadays, most of the data we manage — from mobile phones, tablets and computers — ends up stored in these Data Centers. Actually, many people refer to Data Centers as the Cloud, in a more generic way.
The concept “oversubscription” is a term often used when talking about cloud computing. The oversubscription of resources in cloud computing happens when a shared hosting or Public Cloud provider offers a series of computing resources that exceed the available capacity, because they assume customers don’t use all the resources offered. However, oversubscription isn’t a new
A good monitoring system is indispensable for optimizing IT system administration and increasing efficiency. All the data stored in the monitoring systems and logs is really important both for predicting problems and being proactive. At Stackscale we are aware of the importance of system monitoring services, that is why we integrate them in every project
