Cloud computing provides the tools for additional computing power; storage facilities for websites, applications and media; group collaboration and file exchange. Not only can all be stored online but they are also accessible from any location at any time via computer, tablet, iPhone or Android device.
Cloud computing also includes SaaS [software as a service] as well as plugins and online infrastructure. It can be scaled up or down as needed and is used on a pay-as-you-go system. It is flexible and extremely useful if running or storing large media applications or web plugins. It also provides additional security as backups are conducted regularly and data is encrypted to ensure information is secure.
