Category: Cloud

Cloud computing is an information technology paradigm that enables ubiquitous access to shared pools of configurable system resources and higher-level services that can be rapidly provisioned with minimal management effort, often over the Internet, as noted by Wikipedia.

Microsoft outline it as the delivery of computing services—servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and more—over the Internet (“the cloud”).
