Everyone is talking clouds nowadays. From dining rooms to boardrooms, the term "cloud systems" is everywhere.

So, what are cloud systems?

In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer's hard drive.

The term cloud is a metaphor for the Internet.

Cloud computing is a type of Internet-based computing that provides shared computer processing resources and data to computers and other devices on demand. ... As well, it enables organizations to focus on their core businesses instead of spending time and money on computer infrastructure and security.

Software as a service (SaaS)

Cloud-based applications or software as a service run on distant computers "in the cloud" that are owned and operated by others and that connect to users' computers via the Internet and, usually, a web browser.

The benefits of SaaS

  1. You can sign up and rapidly start using innovative business apps
  2. Apps and data are accessible from any connected computer
  3. No data is lost if your computer breaks, as data is in the cloud
  4. The service is able to dynamically scale to usage needs
