In today's world, cloud computing has become an important field in businesses and technology. For example in the case of Gmail, instead of installing and running e-mail program, just log in to a web e-mail account remotely to communicate. The software and storage for that account does not exist on that computer from where e-mail is being sent. The only requirement is to have the web browser and internet connection.
Another classic example is Google docs where we can create a word document, power point presentation, excel sheet etc. For that operation, one need not have to install any Microsoft Office software in a computer or laptop from where it being accessed. One only needs a Web browser and internet connection. Interestingly, the user will also not have to copy those created documents into an external storage system like pen drive or hard drive. One can access or modify it from any part of the world by just logging into that account using the web browser.
Cloud service is becoming more popular particularly in a small-scale business organization. They are reducing initial investments in order to buy software licenses, installation of computer networks, various digital storage systems etc.
