Introduction to Cloud Computing

The Courtyard

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services—including servers, storage, software, analytics, and even AI—over the Internet (“the cloud”). With cloud computing, you can expect faster innovation, flexible resources, and economies of scale. You typically pay only for cloud services you use, helping you lower your operating costs, run your infrastructure more efficiently, and scale as your business needs change.
