In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer's hard drive. This is cloud computing as it impacts individual consumers—those of us who sit back at home or in small-to-medium offices and use the Internet on a regular basis.
There is an entirely different ‘cloud’ when it comes to business. Some businesses choose to implement Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), where the business subscribes to an application it accesses over the Internet.
There's also Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), where a business can create its own custom applications for use by all in the company. And don't forget the mighty Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Whatever your role in business, modern cloud computing technology can help you see new business opportunities and innovate faster.
