• Cloud Based Application

    • Reduce the complexity of cloud-based applications

    • The rise of the cloud-based application has dramatically transformed the way enterprises consume computing resources. From cloud software developed by organizations to offerings like Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), cloud-based applications enable enterprises to connect more quickly, easily and affordably with the resources they need to be competitive.

      While cloud-based applications offer considerable advantages, they also pose significant management challenges as enterprises adopt a growing number of business cloud solutions. Dell Technologies Cloud enables successful adoption of hybrid cloud solutions with solutions that significantly simplify the management of cloud resources by unifying cloud technology on a common infrastructure.

    • The benefits of cloud-based applications

    • A cloud-based application is a software program that combines cloud-based and local resources. Unlike a web-based application which is operated completely online and cannot function without an Internet connection, a cloud-based application can perform some tasks on a local computer or workstation, enabling users to continue accessing the app off-line.

      Benefits of a cloud-based application include:

      • Scalability. Cloud-based applications can scale easily to meet business demand.
      • Ease of management. Cloud technology eliminates the need to purchase, deploy, manage and upgrade infrastructure on site – a cloud service provider takes care of managing the underlying infrastructure.
      • Fast response. A cloud-based application can be updated, tested and deployed with speed, enabling enterprises to respond quickly to opportunities.
      • Lower cost. Cloud-based applications can be less expensive to run than on-premises software.
      • Easier collaboration. Authorized users can easily access data stored in the cloud to foster greater collaboration.

      Enterprises can benefit from internal cloud-based applications that are built for specific business needs, and from cloud-based applications that provide infrastructure, development environments and software as a service.

      For IT teams, cloud-based apps provide enormous advantages, but one significant disadvantage as well. When combined with other cloud-based services and cloud environments, cloud-based applications can increase the complexity of managing cloud technology. When each cloud resource has its own set of management tools and processes, IT teams can quickly get mired in complex operational details. Switching constantly between platforms is a recipe for inefficiency and increased risk, and the lack of common management tools can significantly slow cloud migration.

      Hybrid cloud computing can simplify matters by providing a consistent infrastructure for managing multiple cloud resources. With Dell Technologies Cloud, enterprises get a solution for a simpler and faster path to hybrid cloud.

    • FAQs: What is a cloud-based application?

    • What is a cloud-based application?

      A cloud-based application is a software program that combines resources in the cloud and on a local computer, enabling users to continue accessing the application when there is no Internet connection. 

      What is a web-based application?

      A web-based application is a software program that operates completely online. Because the processing, memory and data for a web application is stored online, users must have an Internet connection in order to use a web app. 

      What is a cloud-native application?
      A cloud-native application is a software program that is developed using cloud-based technologies and is designed to run in the cloud. Cloud-native apps are comprised of loosely connected microservices that are housed in containers, allowing the application to be built quickly and to scale easily.
