Cloud computing is where software and data currently used by companies are located in an external source rather than physically stored within the company. Setting up a data centre incurs many cost items and requires manpower. Hardware (server-storage-backup), cabling, fire extinguishing systems, disaster recovery centre, licenses, energy consumed by the systems, and a team (technical staff) is required for the stable and continuous operation of the systems. In addition, these costs are not one-time expenses; the hardware and licenses will always need to be updated. When we consider all of these costs, moving our applications and data to the "cloud" provides significant savings in both time and money.

Detailed Information about Cloud Computing
Various definitions of cloud computing are made. In the widely accepted definition, a cloud system has the following features:
Scalable storage (disk) areas
Manageable network resources (virtual and real IPs, other network resources)
Ready-to-use image repository (operating system + other components)
All resources are managed and controlled through a graphical interface
Requests can be made by end users without requiring a system administrator
Pricing based on hours/used resources
Access from any web browser from anywhere
An SLA that guarantees all of this
Cloud Classes According to Type
Public: A cloud type where all resources are located in the company's offices and all of your data is also stored there, which can be operated by a company and used by anyone. You own the management of the resources you use, and the company can also provide you with security, guarantees of service continuity in case of any problem, and backup services under the SLA.
Private: A cloud service structured to serve only a single company/organization. It can be managed by you in your own company/organization or by another company. It can also be located in another company and managed by you.
Hybrid: A structure where you receive service from both the cloud provider outside your company and your own company/organization. Some of your services may be in your own company (accounting, planning, etc.), and some of your services (web, mail) may be provided by a company outside. Similarly, while using a general cloud for the disk space service of a service, other components providing the service (such as servers) may be located in your office. Hybrid cloud systems can take advantage of the price advantage and scalability of general cloud services while keeping critical business applications in their own offices.
Cloud types based on the type of service provided
IAAS (Infrastructure as a service)
Providing infrastructure as a service is the most basic cloud feature. It can be summarized as running your applications on the servers of the cloud service provider. The user specifies the CPU, memory, and disk requirements, as well as the required number of IP addresses, backup and cluster options. After the operating system to be used in their systems is determined, systems with the desired features are provided to the user. The software components in IAAS service consist of the operating system and the services running on it. The user then manages and installs their applications on these systems as if they were their own systems.
PAAS (Platform as a service)
In addition to IAAS, the cloud service provider includes tools that help with software development. These tools are different from the software components in IAAS service. In PAAS service, ready-made platforms are offered to the user for software development. The main purpose of this service is to provide a ready-made platform for end-users to develop software, rather than hardware services. This way, users can focus on development, which is their main goal, instead of setting up and maintaining the necessary platform for software development.
SAAS (Software as a service)
This means using a solution prepared by another company by paying a certain service fee. It is not hardware or a platform, so it is not leased in this way. Different cloud types have different features. You can see the opportunities provided by cloud types based on various features in the table above.
You can see that the total cost of ownership (TCO) and flexibility of a private cloud are not good, but security and performance are good. Naturally, setting up your own cloud system will be more expensive than using a ready-made cloud service, and this system cannot be as flexible (allowing for expansion and contraction) as the general cloud system. Similarly, it is expected that the performance and security of the cloud system you set up according to your own requirements will be better.
