Cloud computing is the on-cruise control possibility to access computer system resources, especially data storage and computing power, without direct active management by the user. It also indicates data centers available to many users over the Internet.
For the time being, many businesses take a multi-cloud approach, meaning they use more than one public cloud service.
New applications, set up accounts or spin up virtual machines are only a few of the capabilities that Cloud enables the user to do by simply filling web forms.
Customers can also code their own modifications and additions with the integration of SaaS applications that offer extensive configuration options.Return to Atlantic Glossary
