What is Cloud computing and its uses?


Hello, the simplest explanation of cloud is storing your files or application over the internet. Meaning where ever you are you can access your applications and files. A more logical explanation is- think of it as a "Cloud" – literally, that where ever you are it's always there. One good example of cloud computing are Google Mail and Yahoo Mail. These applications are running over the internet and not on your PC. You access through your browser only.

Here are some benefits of cloud:

1. If your laptop gets lost or stolen, you need not to worry about your files since it's all stored in the internet. You only need a new PC to access those.

2. Easier Maintenance since the one maintaining such system is a third-party.

3. Accessible anywhere and anytime as long as you have the right privileges.
