Cloud computing is one of the best innovations of this century. It is widely used by firms like Netflix, Spotify, Dropbox, Gmail, Facebook, etc. Cloud computing is also used by healthcare, government and education institutions to provide better service for users. Cloud computing services are opted by small businesses to reduce their costs in building the infrastructure. Cloud computing provides services like artificial intelligence, networking, storage, office applications, etc.
With the increase in the usage of the internet, the application of cloud computing is also expanding. Developing mini projects on cloud computing during your engineering degree will help you to get hands-on experience and also add more value to your profile.
This article talks about the basics of cloud computing and a list of cloud computing mini-projects that you can develop and learn.

Without knowing what cloud computing is, most of us are using cloud computing services in our daily lives. From storage services (Drive, Dropbox, iCloud) to online media services (Netflix, Amazon prime) everything relies on cloud computing technology to provide better service to their customers.
In simple words, cloud computing is a service provided by a third party where you can use their server/computer to develop web applications, hosting a website, etc.
Benefits of cloud computing
Easily Scalable: With the help of cloud computing you can easily scale up or scale down your business operations. By this way, you can save the cost of operations and upgrade when required.
Reduced IT infrastructure costs: Using cloud computing service instead of managing and maintaining your own hardware systems will help you to reduce the operating costs.
Backup and restore data: Businesses use cloud computing to backup and restore their data. Also to prevent the loss of data.
Mobility: The easy accessibility of cloud computing makes companies connect with their employees remotely.
Quick deployment: Cloud computing paves the way for rapid deployment. It helps companies to deploy the software upgrades in very few minutes.

5. Weather monitoring system using IoT: In this cloud computing mini-project, you will develop a weather monitoring system using Raspberry pi and DHT sensor. You will collect the data and store it in the cloud for future purposes. You will use Thingspeak cloud platform for the data analysis process.
6. Home automation using IoT: This is an innovative cloud computing project, where you will develop a system to connect the home appliances and operate it remotely over the internet. You will collect the data and store it in the cloud for future analysis.
7. Smart irrigation system: In this cloud computing project, you will develop a smart system to irrigate crops that monitors the soil moisture and turns ON/OFF the water pump. You will use Arduino Uno, ESP8266, Soil moisture sensor to develop this project. You will connect this system to cloud to analyse the data.
8. Smart building using IoT: In this cloud computing mini-project, you will learn to develop a system to turn ON/OFF the lights in a room based on the number of occupants in the room. You will use a PIR sensor to detect the number of persons in the room. You can implement this project in public places and corporate offices to save electricity. This system is connected to the cloud platform for the storage and analysis of the data.
9. Smart water monitoring system: With this cloud computing mini project, you can save the wastage of water. You can implement this system in apartments and houses to monitor water usage. You will use a water monitoring sensor to collect the data and you will use Arduino and ESP8266 to connect the system to the cloud.
10. Automated street lighting system: In this cloud computing mini-project, you will develop a system to automatically turn ON/OFF the street light based on the sunlight intensity. You will collect and store the data in the cloud for future analysis. Thinkspeak platform is used to store and analyze the data.
