  2. 2. What is Cloud Computing?“Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand. In general, cloud computing customers do not own the physical infrastructure, instead avoiding capitalexpenditure by renting usage from a third-party provider. They consume resources as a service and pay only for resources that they use.”
