Cloud Services

The term “cloud services” normally refers to services similar to what we are used to from the use of a local computer, both in terms of editing and storing documents, but where storage and processing of data, in fact, takes place at an external provider, anywhere on the Internet, but where is it mostly uninteresting where this actually takes place. Hence the “cloud”.
