What Is Cloud Computing
Whenever you use a computer, you are creating and managing data. This data need to be stored somewhere. When we talk about cloud computing, the data is stored in the cloud (the Internet) instead of on your hardware (your computer).
For example, when you are saving a document, it can go to your document folder on your computer, using space on your hard drive, or you can use a file-hosting service such as Dropbox or Google Drive. When it comes to software, you can also choose services installed on your computer or hosted in the cloud. Finally, cloud technology can host websites and blogs or store and back up data at a higher level. A cloud can be privately owned or on a third-party server.
What most businesses use in the cloud is software as a service (SaaS). This model is the perfect way for small businesses to gain access to application software and databases. The software remains in the cloud and is accessed through the Internet.

SaaS is usually pay per use solution. It can scale up or down according to the current needs.
