What is cloud computing? How does it work? The term “cloud” when talking about technology or computing, is not new. In simple terms, ‘cloud’ is a metaphor for the Internet. It shares information by the way of networks.
So what is cloud computing? This refers to sharing resources, software and information through a network. In this case, via ‘the Internet’ or more correctly, an Internet connection. Information and data is stored on physical or virtual servers. As a personal or business cloud computing user, you access your stored information on the ‘cloud’, via an Internet connection.
Moving your data and services to the Cloud means you just pay a smaller monthly fee which covers all hardward / software updates, maintenance and hardware upgrades
