Cloud computing is utilizing computing resources (such as processing power, infrastructure, software applications, data storage and other services) that are delivered to clients over the internet, as a service or utility. It includes such services as Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), Platform as a service, Software as a service, and Storage as a service.

Through cloud computing, users can access and run their applications through a web browser or a mobile app. All the processing and data storage is done on remote servers.
