Everything nowadays is moved to the cloud, running on the cloud, and accessed from the cloud, or may be stored in the cloud.

Cloud Computing often referred to as the “cloud” is a service that allows people to use online services that are generally available through any device with an internet connection. This implies that the user does not need to be at a certain location in order to access certain data. From computing and analytics to secure and safe storage and networking resources, everything can be delivered within no time thanks to the cloud.

The goal of Cloud Computing is to deliver these services over the internet in order to offer faster innovation, flexible resources, and economies of sale. Do you know that you probably have been using different cloud-based applications every day? Whenever you share an important file over Onedrive with your colleague through the web or use a mobile app, download a picture or even watch a show on Netflix or Amazon Prime show or play an online game. This all happens via cloud computing. The interesting part is it saves you a lot of money and time. You don’t have to buy any machines or install any kind of software. The cloud platform which is running these applications will handle everything whether it’s Google, Microsoft, Intel, VMware, IBM, or Amazon. Many of those tech giants have switched from traditional computer hardware to cloud-based computing. These companies are also the most popular cloud service providers in the market today.
