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. There is no one-size-fits-all cloud service model for every business. The right choice will depend mainly on how many “layers” companies can or

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.

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
In this post we want to collect the most common terms in cloud computing; from basic concepts such as the cloud service models and types to more specialized concepts related to cloud computing. Let’s start from the beginning… What’s cloud computing? Cloud computing is a computing resources and services distribution model —from applications to storage
In this article we are going to present the types of cloud and their main features. Although the cloud computing concept is anything but new (it was previously known as virtualization), the evolution of cloud computing has radically changed the traditional IT services model. These changes entail numerous advantages and the implementation of cloud solutions
