The cloud, or cloud computing can be a confusing thing. We are not talking about the weather, but a place that information is stored and can be interacted with.
The term ‘the cloud’ can be loosely thought of as the Internet. Information in the cloud is stored on servers belonging to and maintained by others—not directly on your local computer.
If you have used Gmail or Yahoo to access your email, watched videos on YouTube, used Netflix, or paid a bill online, then you have used a web application that is operating in the cloud.
