Cloud computing is delivery of resources like storage, networking software, computing unit etc. over the Internet. Means whatever services that you want to use, you can demand those resources from the cloud service providing companies by paying the cost on time basis. The goal of cloud computing is to allow users to take benefit from all of these technologies, without the need for deep knowledge about or expertise with each one of them. Cloud service providing companies are Microsoft Azure, Oracle, Amazon cloud etc.
