Cloud computing is when you access computing services--like servers, storage, networking, software--over the internet ("the cloud") from a provider like Azure. For example, instead of storing personal documents and photos on your personal computer's hard drive, most people now store them online: that's cloud computing. Cloud computing platforms, like Azure, tend to be less expensive and more secure, reliable, and flexible than on-premises servers. With the cloud, equipment downtime due to maintenance, theft, or damage is almost non-existent. You can scale your compute and storage resources--up or down--almost instantly when your needs change on Azure.
