Any application that is developed through the internet is termed as “cloud”.
Cloud computing technology is sparking a huge change in application development circles. Cloud computing technology boasts all the benefits of multitenancy, including built-in security, reliability, upgradeability, and ease of use.
The terms “cloud computing” and “working in the cloud” refer to perform computer tasks using service delivered entirely over the internet.
Services provided over the cloud computing:
