The phrase "cloud computing" was first used in a Compaq internal document in 1996. The term "cloud" was first associated with the concept of distributed computing, which gained popularity in the early 1990s at Apple-founded General Magic, with earlier usage in academic work.

Cloud computing is a service that enables software to be delivered as a service rather than installed on the user's computer. The cloud acts as a server and the applications are run from it. Cloud computing has many benefits, such as low costs and high accessibility.

In a nutshell, you own the data you create, but the cloud service provider has complete authority over it. Many providers' terms of service reflect this, stating that they have the right to keep data in order to comply with legal requirements.

From Old English clud 'rock,' a topographic name denoting someone who resided near an outcrop or hill (only later used to denote vapour formations in the sky).

Microsoft achieved $19.5 billion in revenue in its fourth fiscal quarter of 2021, putting the tech giant in first place among cloud vendors in terms of revenue.
