What is Cloud Computing?
The term used to describe a kind of service where you can rent processor cycles and use them according to your needs. For example, if you wanted to do a complex maths problem that could only be comfortably handled by a powerful processor, cloud computing would enable the user to gain access to server resources that could be used to complete the job. The user thus need not invest in equipment for tasks that may be more effectively rented out.
