What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing is the general practice of using a distributed network of offsite servers to store, manage, and process data rather than using private, onsite resources. These servers are virtual, creating a large pool of resources that can be divided up and utilized on an as-needed basis.Today's modern enterprises benefit from moving workloads to the cloud by reducing costs and improving efficiency. Virtual servers are flexible and scalable, so you only pay for what you use. You no longer have to pay to maintain compute or storage resources that you may only need during peak periods. Plus, your human resources are freed to focus on your business rather than maintaining infrastructure.
