What is Cloud Computing?
Simply put, cloud computing is computing in the cloud. Basically, it is the practice of storing and running applications and services over the cloud. The cloud here refers to nothing more than servers, which communicate with devices over the internet. As the files and applications are not stored on the device but can be downloaded and used over the air, i.e. internet, the term cloud has been incorporated with it.
The computing services can include servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and more. They are often called cloud providers and typically charge for cloud computing services based on usage.
