The most effective way to access your data and apps from anywhere in the world is to host them on the Cloud. Cloud computing helps you to reduce your cost, enhance accessibility and services. Before people started using Cloud computing they were hosting the software on one or more locally available machines.
Cloud made the task easy by enabling users to access, upload or download the data directly from the internet. Any businessman or anybody who is travelling around the world and wishes to access the applications or data from any corner of the world, Cloud is the best solution. Now-a-days, Cloud computing is growing in reputation and meeting the day-to-day demands of small enterprises too. Previously, people were very prejudiced while using internet or uploading any official data on the internet, as they understood that, uploading the data on internet is not secure. However, today the situation has changed and along with it, peoples mindsets too. Data uploaded on the Cloud is completely safe and easily accessible with just a single ID and password for each user. Earlier, when people were using a common server, it resulted in issues with speed, data corruption, and data burglary etc. But Cloud computing has a full proof system of data security.

Lets understand the features of Cloud computing:
1)Service on demand: Cloud computing is supported by a service model called Services-on-Demand which permits the customer to connect to the Cloud to execute tasks like building, organizing and development. The customer should be able to access computing capabilities whenever they need and with no additional interaction from the Cloud service provider. This brings rapidness in work and ease of data sharing.
2)Costing: The costing structure for Cloud computing services is not standard since it entirely depends upon usage. The customer is billed based on the total resources used. The user can track the usage and this could help reduce cost.
3)Service excellence: Cloud computing guarantees the most excellent service for its users. The service agreement typically includes guarantees for 24×7 availability, sufficient resources and bandwidth. Any failure in providing these services could result in issues for users.
