Ten points! What is it meant by "served" in the last sentence? Thanks?


Cloud computing is nothing more than using an outside service provider to store, manage or process our data. The reason we call this service “The Cloud” is you never know where our data is physically stored, it is being *served* by the “Cloud.”

    It means the data is being stored on the Cloud's server, which means it's not

    stored on YOUR computer or your ISP's Server, but on Cloud's server (storage device).

    Cloud server hosting:

    Cloud server hosting is a type of hosting in which hosting services are made available to customers on demand via the Internet. Rather than being provided by a single server or virtual server, cloud server hosting services are provided by multiple connected servers that comprise a cloud. Cloud server hosting is also sometimes referred to as cluster server hosting or server on-demand hosting.

    Cloud server hosting offers the advantages of increased accessibility and reliability, seamless scalability and potential cost savings, as customers are freed from having to invest in on-premises servers and hardware, and they pay only for the resources they consume. On the other hand, security and lack of access and full control are potential concerns with cloud server hosting.

    "it is being provided by the Cloud".
