Cloud computing is a term that has emerged over the years owing largely to the innumerable use of data and its computation. Cloud in this case refers to the internet and its fast growth in our everyday life, especially how it affects business transactions.
The use of cloud suggests saving our documents and files through a means other than the manual format that is between the computer and you, this could be termed saving in a third party format, that is, saving your document with your knowledge, the computer's knowledge and the internet's knowledge. Cloud computing enables you to view or access your files anytime and anywhere in the world. You don't have to go with the computer you store your documents in all over the place. All you have to do is for example is open your email and get the information needed. Therefore cloud computing means storing data or files in the air, of course with the aid of an internet service provider. With the way the internet is changing the way we interact as a society and most especially the face of business, the role of the 'cloud' as such cannot be overemphasized. But before I delve into how cloud computing influences businesses, let me quickly highlight the types of cloud models that exist for you to choose from, considering which suits your business or data needs.
This is for storage of very sensitive data and applications and it is controlled by you or a third party. It works more favourably for companies whose data are a major part of their business.
This is more suitable for companies who share the same data in a private cloud. A good example is a series of franchise partnership, they run basically the same access to a private cloud.
This is hosted outside the site of the business and is accessed over the internet. It is managed by an external body and affords flexibility and runs at a lower cost, but with a risk of less safety for your data.
This is the combination of private and public clouds. So as a business owner you can decide to spread out your options on both clouds. Now to the roles of cloud in computing for business.

OVERVIEW OF RIGHTSIZING
What is rightsizing and how does this relate
Compatibility is an important factor
Keeping some not so sensitive data or applications on the public and keeping the very sensitive ones behind the private cloud. It is worthy of note to state that the internet and the introduction of new technologies have changed the game in businesses today in terms of their efficiency and general productivity even in companies of all sizes. The increase in internet usage and the rate at which information is being acquired combined with new electronic devices with larger storage capacity has brought about a new level of social media possibilities. And the birth of this innovation is owed to the cloud technology which also tends to have a whole to offer to companies and businesses in general.
Cloud helps businesses to reduce the cost of their IT systems. Because now you are able to store you data at a cheaper rate with the services of your cloud computing provider, thereby avoiding the cumbersome cost of computer systems and components.
It provides backup for files and data such that it your company experience a natural disaster, you can still access your information and bounce back like nothing happened. This could also mean longevity in the span of your business.
With all that has been said no business should lag behind has cloud stands to propel businesses to the next level.
The first thing that comes to mind when one sees this topic is what is rightsizing and how does this relate to me? In order to establish some basic knowledge of the word here is a definition of rightsizing according to business dictionary: the process of an corporation reorganizing or restructuring their business by cost cutting, workforce reduction or reorganizing upper level management, With the goal of molding company properly to achieve maximum profit.
Rightsizing in information technology is the process of evaluating and restructuring an organization's data storage, networking and hardware components so as to get the best possible result from such services, in terms of cost and value. It seeks to identify and maintain the assets needed to get the job done
Rightsizing in data computing is the next thing to consider with the rise in client/server technology.
Businesses now want to ensure that their Virtual Machines VMs has the exact resources it requires to do its job instead of the traditional way of using default placement which provides for what is not needed.The client/server models suggest that a computer application should run in an environment which is efficient for it. This is why developers reviews and determine which tasks is best suitable for which application and presents this as it befits each or any particular organization to work with. Many a time , the developer will deem it fit to present certain result to the client sever instead of belabouring the client with cumbersome data and by so doing reduce the amount of request back and forth between the server and the client. Knowing how to share the task holds a major stake in the failure of success of the client/server application. Therefore the developer has to take extra care not to jeopardise the purpose of the application in the first place.
However, here are some factors that needs to be considered when rightsizing
This means prioritizing of workload on an application. It cuts back unused space so as to save cost. It reduces the excess fat in cloud computing to downright size needed to run an application. That is taking your data storage from a host sever to a local area network (LAN)
Despite cutting back on unnecessary cloud space, companies are also prepping for the future by making sure that the LAN systems are expandable to accommodate growth of applications in the nearest future.
This is the effective combination of the right cost and performance of an application. This suggests that it can considers the environment and the servers role. Smartsizing can therefore cause businesses to operate more effectively and increase profit.
