Cloud Communications Terminology

Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is the use of a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage, and process your data, rather than needing a local server or computer onsite. This means that instead of investing in hardware and software, training staff, and providing maintenance, your organization can save time and money by having some or all of these needs handled by a cloud service provider (also known as “software as a service,” or SaaS). For example, most telecommunications are now handled via the internet, eliminating the need for land lines, servers, phone poles, and lots of copper wiring.
