What is cloud computing and it’s evolution?
Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the
electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet). Cloud computing can be public or private or a hybrid.
Microsoft’s first foray into cloud computing was Windows Updates with the release of Windows 95 and IE4. More profound in 98.
Almost everyone that has a device connected to the Internet is using some form of Cloud Computing.
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

Cloud computing is any service that is delivered typically via the Internet.
It can be provided by a public vendor or privately. We’ve been using it for years.
There are many vendors out there, make sure you
