Cloud computing means using computer services on another organisation’s computer systems. The services are provided by organisations known as hosting companies. Some well-known hosting companies for cloud computing include Amazon®, Microsoft ® , Google™ and RackSpace.

Cloud users can access software, data and storage on the host computers, which will be at a remote location. Users do this through a web browser or mobile app, without ever directly accessing the servers that the information is stored on.

Cloud storage is related to cloud computing – it is where only the storage, access and retrieval facilities are provided by the host provider, often via the internet.


Cost and convenience You only pay for the storage that you have used. You don’t have to provide and maintain the hardware locally.Availability Data and files
