The advanced cloud computing technology has made possible for Internet users to enjoy good services conveniently, making room for the development of the Internet industry in years to come. With the aid of this distributed computing technique, one can acquire any information, anywhere, anytime. This power of the cloud computing platform is an unparalleled convenience compared to the PC age, and inception periods of the Internet.
Development of Cloud computing in China
It has taken only a few years for the concept of cloud computing in China to transform from research to practice in reality. Fortunately, for China, its internet companies, like Tencent caught the trend immediately. Tencent is China’s largest privately owned corporate giant dedicated to comprehensive the Internet industry. It offers high quality network services, internet businesses including, online media, communication tools, social networking services, e-businesses and search engines to millions of users spread across the country. For Tencent, the primary advantage of cloud computing is that it can employ the public network configuration, making our computing capability, processing aptitude, and logic components as assessable as domiciliary resources like electricity or water.
In recent years, the Chinese government and enterprises, both have invested huge funds, personnel, and devices to develop this research technology. Tencent is building Asia’s biggest data center to support a cloud platform, developing a cloud-computing platform to support distributed storage, intelligent resource management and parallel computing. Other Chinese businesses are also working to enhance with regards to cloud computing based services like hardware and related support. Parallely, the Chinese government is trying its best in this field too, joining hands with the industry to set up relative national standards.
ChinaNetCloud claims of being china’s cloud computing expert, providing world class technology and flexibility to grow and scale. Any and every company can use the cloud, converting old servers to the cloud, benefitting economically and technically. NetCloud is distinct from its contenders with respect to its flexibility, affordability, ease of use and reliability.
Amazon Web Services and IBM- heavyweights in the market of cloud computing in China are both going to offer consumer services in China. The indigenous companies, one of them being the e-commerce giant Alibaba, and web services company Baidu have largely led research and innovations in the Chinese cloud- computing sector.
U.S. centered cloud benefactors weigh potentially vast market opportunities above risks in moving more distributed computing services into China. Cloud computing and creation of huge databases will assist smaller businesses to enter into the Chinese market more easily, while at the same time owners of data can cash in on their gathered information. It is agreed that despite prevailing applications being customer oriented, the actual potential lies in the hands of the industry.
Construction work has already begun by China’s two largest mobile operators on their own cloud-computing facilities in the province of Guizhou, situated in the southwestern part of the country. It is estimated that China Unicom and China Mobile are investing about 7 billion yuan into the proposed sites. The country’s third largest mobile operator, China Telecom has already begun building its own cloud computing facility on the same site.
