• The cloud is the practice of using services hosted on the internet to store, manage and process data, rather than a local server or personal computer.
  • An Example of this is Gmail or any Web Based Program ( This is referred to as SAAS or Software as a Service ).
  • With the example of Dropbox or Gmail you do not need to have the hardware to store this data physically or look after the hardware.¬†
  • You are using another Computer/Server to run a task or objective and not your local computer.¬†
