For many, the terms cloud and cloud service are vague and somewhat confusing. However, the cloud is becoming more and more known, hence more people are gaining a general understanding of the basics of what the cloud is. To gain access to the cloud, users must use a cloud service. Cloud service is defined as a service made available to users on demand through the Internet from cloud computing provider’s servers. This contrasts with local servers provided by a company’s own on-premises servers. Cloud services are intended to offer easy, scalable access to applications, resources and services, and are fully managed by a cloud services provider.
