Benefits of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is shorthand for a variety of commercial third-party hardware and software services available via the Internet. The cloud metaphor can sometimes imply that there’s no physical hardware involved; but while the goal for end-users is to minimize hardware and IT work, this is only made possible by third parties taking on the responsibilities of server space, hardware space, data storage, applications, and other back-end logistics. Think of it as shared server space, broken up into many “virtual servers” that are accessible via the internet.
