Top 10 Cloud Companies in Nigeria
With cloud taking over, businesses are now able to run faster and smoother. Long gone are the days when one had to own their own infrastructure on-premise. A number of cloud companies have taken the role of providing whatever computing resource you need over a network called the ‘cloud’.
Types of cloud computing services
Cloud computing services can be classified into three main groups depending on the resources being provided. These are:
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
Just as the name suggests, cloud providers lease out IT infrastructure to businesses and companies. The infrastructure include network, storage, servers, backup and computing power. An example of an IaaS is web hosting where internet service providers (ISPs) provide web servers for hosting purposes.
Platform as a service (PaaS)
With many developers emerging, it only makes sense that software platforms be provided over the cloud. The tools are designed to give users the components needed to quickly develop and manage a web application. Website builders are examples of PaaS that you may come across.
Software as a service (SaaS)
SaaS tops on PaaS and IaaS. You get a whole application delivered to you over the internet. You don’t need to be a developer in this case. The best part about it is that you can run the application on more than one device since the application is web-based.
Here are the top 10 cloud companies in Nigeria that you can look out for for these services:
