About Cloud Computing

Star Cloud Computing

In cloud computing, the word cloud is used as a metaphor for "the Internet," so the cloud computing means "a type of internet based computing," where different services such as computer networks, servers, storage, applications and other services are delivered to computers and other devices through the Internet. Its relies on sharing computing resources rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications. Cloud-computing providers provide their services in three standard models like Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure a Service (laaS).
