Cloud computing can be defined as the kind of computing which depends on the shared resources of the computers instead of possessing local servers or personal devices for handling different applications.
The word ‘cloud’ or the phrase ‘the cloud’ can be used as metaphors for ‘the internet’. So, the cloud computing can be explained as a type of internet based computing. In this process, different services like the storage, servers, and applications can be delivered to the devices and the computers of the organizations through the internet. Sometimes, the cloud computing can be compared to the grid computing, where the unutilized processing cycles of the computers can be used to solve the problems through the different networks.
