Cloud computing is an Internet-based use of computer technology. Many IT-related capabilities are provided as a service via the web, allowing users to access these services from any machine with an Internet connection.
In essence, cloud computing is a way to increase capacity or add capabilities without investing in a new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software. You’re getting all the functionality but none of the headaches of running the IT infrastructure in-house. No upgrades, no contract renewals, no security issues.
