"Cloud" means lots of different things. Generally it is services or applications or storage that are not at your location. You probably already use the cloud in some way. Dropbox, Windows365, many apple features are all "cloud".

Cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer's hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet. It goes back to the days of flowcharts and presentations that would represent the gigantic server-farm infrastructure of the Internet as nothing but a puffy, white cumulonimbus cloud, accepting connections and doling out information as it floats.

Cloud is a simple online data storage service which is provided by different different providers. You can save your data online and get easily download whenever you want and anywhere. Cloud storage is a model of data storage where the digital data is stored in logical pools, the physical storage spans multiple servers (and often locations), and the physical environment is typically owned and managed by a hosting company.

Cloud computing is an online data storage system that allows user to to save their data online. There are many cloud computing providers. This is a useful service that keeps the data safe and secure. Data saved here can not be lost and remains secured from any threat.

To understand how cloud works let’s assume that the cloud consists of layers, the back end layers and the front end layers. The front layers are the parts you see and interact with. For example, suppose that you access your Facebook profile, you are using software running on the front of the cloud whereas the back end consists of hardware and software architecture that allows you to see the data on the front end.
