Now a day I can hear many people talking about cloud computing and I never speak at that juncture because I know nothing about cloud computing. Is is the process of operating others computer through the internet or anything else. And are the terms cloud computing and cloud storage related with one another? Does cloud computing require a fast internet connection? Can we use the facility of cloud computing as a free member. These all questions are left unanswered in my brain so I would be grateful towards you if you could clear my confusion.
What is actually that cloud computing?
Let us eliminate your questions one-by-one.
1. What is Cloud Computing? The process which several resources, databases, computer are launch and or interconnected to one another that allows centralized access of data storage. It can be classified as private, public or hybrid.

Business owners or groups can accumulate cloud storage and pay for the space they used. It can be used as a back-up for national disaster. Files are being access for editing by accessing to different computers.

4. Your last question, can you use it for free? Yes there are multiple sites offering free cloud storage. It will also depend on your security requirements and storage. Most of this free services offered can give you 1TB of maximum storage.
