What is the cloud? Cloud computing?

Category: Computers & Internet


The Cloud - Cloud ComputingThe cloud or cloud computing refers to resources, files, programs, and other applications that are hosted on remote servers (computers) and can be accessed by the user through any internet connection. So essentially, the cloud is just a way for you to access data remotely. The data can reside on either your personal hard drive or another company’s hosted resource. The cloud or cloud computing is just a fancy way of saying “the internet” or “cyberspace”. In the near future, the computers we buy will look much different. They will, in all probability, only consist of a monitor and keyboard with all of the actual physical hardware, software, and computing power residing in another location.
