What is Cloud Computing?

As cloud itself possess water molecules, similarly the Cloud Computing possess various computing services within an imaginary cloud of computers. We can easily access these services at any time and use almost any digital device or computers, that is connected to a network of this Cloud Cluster. These days when life is moving so fast, it is recommended that the work flow becomes easy and secure. That becomes possible due to cloud.
