Cloud computing definition (noun)
Cloud computing is a form of computing infrastructure that doesn’t require physical proximity to a hardware system. It allows data storage, software services, and IT processing based on the internet, rather than on a server.
Cloud computing can exist within a single organization as an “enterprise cloud” or as a “public cloud” which is available to multiple organizations. Use of public clouds is often rented out as a B2B service.
