Services In The Cloud, Easy To Lose Your Latin!

Let’s take a look at the English acronyms you may encounter most often on your way to the cloud and their meaning in French.

Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) or mobile backend as a service (mBaaS); is a cloud computing model that provides web developers with mobile applications with tools and services to create a complete cloud infrastructure for their applications.

Content Delivery Network (CDN); is a network of distributed services that provide content to a user based on the user’s geographic proximity to the servers. CDN enables fast delivery of content for sites with high traffic volume or large geographic reach.

Cloud Application; is an application that works in the cloud.

Cloud Backup or BKaaS; is a data backup service for end users or businesses who want to have a backup in the cloud.

Cloud computing; is the provision of information technology services over a network, usually the Internet. In the cloud computing model, infrastructures, data, and software are hosted by the provider and delivered to the user as a service, much like a utility that delivers water or water. ‘electricity.

According to the official definition NIST definition, there are five essential features of cloud computing: self-service demand for resource provisioning, public network access, pooling resources, rapid expansion and the service measured (quantity consumed).

The top three cloud computing models are Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS). Based on three types of infrastructure; public, private and hybrid.

Cloud Service Provider (CSP); is a company that offers cloud computing services on demand, such as IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, to individuals or businesses.

Cloud Storage or Storage as a service; is a computer storage model in which data is stored in the facilities (often multiple installations) managed by a hosting company (CSP) and is remotely accessible by the user via the Internet.

container; is an instance of virtualization, in which the kernel of an operating system allows the user of multiple instances of the isolated space. Unlike virtual machines (VMs), containers do not have to run an OS image for each instance. Instead, the containers are able to run separate instances of an application within a single shared operating system.

Elasticity or Elastic … is a term used to refer to the ability of a system to adapt to the workload by pooling and releasing common resources so that those provisioned match current demand as well as possible.

Cloud Hybrid is an environment that includes a set of different types of cloud computing infrastructures and/or those in the business premises (usually two). Private example and in the premises or public and private.

The hypervisor is the software layer that lies between the physical resources (CPU, RAM, HD, and network) and the operating system of a VM. This makes it possible to simultaneously create and operate multiple VMs on the same physical server, each VM being itself a logical server isolated from others using resources provided by the Hypervisor.

Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is a model of cloud computing in which the provider (CSP) hosts virtualized computing resources, as well as network and storage resources, and provides it to the user as a service via the Internet.

Managed Service Provider (MSP) is an IT service provider that provides network, systems, applications and customer services management over a remote network.

Middleware; is a software layer for connecting different software or applications of a company to each other.

In a model of computing in the cloud, it is the setting n common physical and virtual resources that are dynamically allocated and reallocated to tenants based on consumer demand.

On-Premise is the word used to describe a service or infrastructure residing on the premises of the business.

Platform; is defined as a computer system on which applications are run, or as a base for technologies on which other technologies (such as applications) are built.

Platform as a service (PaaS) is a model of cloud infrastructure in which a provider (CSP) provides the tools necessary to create, deploy and manage user applications on a platform via the Internet, hardware, and software, as a service.

Private Cloud is a model of the cloud infrastructure where it is provisioned for use by a single, multi-user organization. It is private, managed and operated by the organization, a third party, or a combination of both, and may exist in or outside the company premises and is accessible only through a private connection. Public Cloud; is a cloud infrastructure model where the cloud is served by a service provider (CSP) and shared with many other customers and accessed via the Internet in a public manner.

Software as a service (SaaS) is a model of cloud computing where the application/service and all that is needed for its operation is provided by a service provider (CSP). Most of the time is served by monthly subscription and users can access it over the Internet.

Virtual Desktop as a service (DaaS) is comparable to PaaS but for personal operating systems and not application servers. Virtual Machine (VM) / Guest Machine; is a software computer that runs an operating system or application environment, just as the physical hardware would do. The end user has the same experience on a VM as on dedicated physical hardware. Essentially, a virtual machine is a machine inside a machine. By running virtual machines, a hardware computer can run multiple instances of the same operating system. Applications running on separate instances cannot interfere with each other, if an application crashes, it will not be affected by applications on other virtual machines.
