YouTube iTunes Buzz Word Cloud computing is Internet (”cloud”) based development and use of computer technology (”computing”). It is a style of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualised resources are provided as a service over the Internet. Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure “in the cloud” that supports them.

There's no hardware or software to install or maintain, since everything is delivered through a standard web browser -- anytime,
from anyplace."
