A cloud is a place where we store the data centers which are nothing but the storage spaces of data. In simple terms, a cloud is nothing but a space that is available online for the usage of your website. Cloud gives you complete control to maintain and monitor these networks and use the required resources in order to store and manage the data. The service riders of cloud would provide you all types of services such as taking care of security issues, infrastructure related issues, etc which enables you to completely focus on your business without worrying about these issues. Cloud computing contributes several services like monitoring, maintenance of the website, providing enough space to store the data generated.
