    Type [ what is cloud computing ] into a Google search box. The definitions and descriptions already exist on the internet so that we don't have to duplicate it here. If you have a specific problem when using cloud computing, we'll try to help. -- Tom

    Cloud computing is an alternative to fixed server computing, and it is being used by more and more businesses, tech firms, colleges and hospitals, to name just a few. With cloud computing, data and files are stored, sent and accessed via "the cloud," with a secure high-speed Internet connection, thereby eliminating the need for server boxes. There are a number of cloud-based computing companies out there, which is making for a very competitive market and thereby driving the cost(s) down.
