Cloud Computing is a term that refers to hosted services that are delivered over the internet. Different from traditional web hosting, the services on the cloud are sold on demand, are offered in an elastic manner-meaning the customer can use as much or as little of the service as needed and are managed completely by the service provider.
Additionally, a cloud can be private or public. A public cloud sells services to anyone on the internet, such AWS operates, while a private cloud supplies hosted services to a limited number of users.
What is Cloud Backup?
Also known as online backup or remote backup, is a strategy for sending a copy of a physical or virtual file or database to a secondary, off-site location for preservation in case of equipment failure or catastrophe. The secondary server and storage system are usually hosted by a third-party service provider.
