Cloud computing means computing services or resources that are provided over internet or through network.

Buying new platforms and software with valid licenses will be a costly affair, if every individual as per his requirements. The software versions also change for every 2 to 3 years, summarily it needs too much amount of money to spend on these.
Cloud computing is the solution to cut these costs. Whatever you want, Linux or Windows, applications, cloud computing enables you to use the applications or platform over network and charge the exact amount according the usage or space only.
We can take some space on rent from cloud to store our downloaded songs, videos when there is insufficient space left in our hard disk.
Suppose any Application requires 16GB memory to run and is not available in our hard disc, we can take a system with that size from cloud on rent to run that application.
Think your friend has sent you an attachment from his Apple Mac which will be opened only on Apple Mac and you have a Windows OS, which does not support to open that attachment, in such case you can take an Apple Mac System from cloud on rent and can open the attachment. You have to pay as per your usage only.
Cloud computing technology is going to be a major revolution in Information Technology sector, which is minimizing the cost of usage as well as creating jobs and careers in this field.
