Cloud computing refers to the provision of computational resources on demand via a computer network.
In the traditional model of computing, both data and software are fully contained on the user's computer; in cloud computing, the user's computer may contain almost no software or data (perhaps a minimal operating system and web browser only), serving as little more than a display terminal for processes occurring on a network of computers far away.
A common shorthand for a provider's cloud computing service (or even an aggregation of all existing cloud services) is ""The Cloud"".
