    Cloud computing is an example of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources are provided as a service over the Internet.[1][2] Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure in the "cloud" that supports them.[3]

    The concept generally incorporates combinations of the following:

    Infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

    Platform as a service (PaaS).

    Software as a service (SaaS).

    Other recent (ca. 2007–09)[4][5] technologies that rely on the Internet to satisfy the computing needs of users. Cloud computing services often provide common business applications online that are accessed from a web browser, while the software and data are stored on the servers.

    The term cloud is used as a metaphor for the Internet, based on how the Internet is depicted in computer network diagrams and is an abstraction for the complex infrastructure it conceals

    I hope this helps!!
