WHY CLOUD IS USEFUL FOR DATA SCIENTISTS

Data Scientists tells us that cloud is more essential and useful in many ways. Cloud is used by people all over the world for so many reasons. Cloud servers are located in Data centers all over the world. Cloud refers to servers that are accessed over internet by various companies and the software, databases, artificial intelligence, data analytics that run on those servers and these are the various computing services.

Cloud can just store large amount of data on servers. It also allows you to deploy very advanced computing algorithms and ability to do high performance. Cloud allows multiple entities to work with same data at the same time. Cloud is accessible from everywhere.

Data Scientists says that Cloud is beautiful, the reasons are :-

It helps collaboration

It drives better engagement

Because of its speed

Because of file storage

Big data analytics

Data backups and archiving

Agility, flexibility and scalability.

Cloud enables you to get instant access to open source technologies like Apache spark without installing and configuring. Cloud gives you access to most up to date tools and libraries.

WHY CLOUD IS IMPORTANT IN DATA SCIENCE?

Imagine that there is no cloud computing for Data Science. Then companies have to locally store data in servers and every time the Data Scientist need to perform Data analysis or extracting information from the data and they have to transfer the data to their system from central servers and perform the analysis. Companies deals with very large volumes of data. This is a very complicated process. Hence, cloud is important for Data Science.
