Cloud architecture use cases

  1. Web hosting. Cloud servers make websites reliable and easy to grow. They also stop the need to fix physical servers.
  2. Data storage and backup. Cloud stores data safely and without needing expensive hardware. It also keeps backups, so information is safe even if something goes wrong.
  3. Software development. Cloud platforms help make software faster because they take care of all the complicated stuff behind the scenes.
  4. Collaborative work. With cloud tools, people can work together on projects even if they’re far away. Employees can share documents and collaborate in real time.
  5. Disaster Recovery. Cloud solutions copy important data if something bad happens, like a computer crashing. Businesses can get back up and running quickly.
