Cloud solutions, also known as cloud computing, cloud products or cloud services, deliver IT resources on demand over the Internet.

What is a cloud product?

What is a cloud product? Cloud products provide a wide range of cloud-based services including computation, storage, databases, analytics, networking, mobile, developer tools, management tools, Internet of Things (IoT), security, and enterprise applications.

There are several examples of cloud computing applications used by both businesses and individuals. One type of cloud service would be streaming platforms for audio or video, where the actual media files are stored remotely. Another would be data storage platforms like Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, or Box. Even personal storage like iCloud.

What is cloud in simple words?

The definition for the cloud can seem murky, but essentially, it’s a term used to describe a global network of servers, each with a unique function. The cloud is not a physical entity, but instead is a vast network of remote servers around the globe which are hooked together and meant to operate as a single ecosystem.

Why do they call IT the cloud?

The name comes from the fact that the data gets stored on servers – in the cloud. So, I guess it’s safe to assume that the cloud is a slang term used by tech industry people to describe the servers and networking infrastructures that allow users to store and access data through the internet.
