Introduction to Azure Cloud

Get introduced to the cloud, cloud computing, cloud services, and more.

What is the cloud?

When someone says their data is in the cloud, it has nothing to do with the sky, heaven, or literal fluffy clouds. What they actually mean is that their data isn’t stored locally on their system; instead, it’s stored in some remote location and is accessible through the internet.

The cloud services can be accessed through a web browser like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. In addition, some companies offer dedicated mobile applications to access these services.
