What is the cloud?
Cloud computing is a mixture of technology services and infrastructure that are provided over the internet. Data is stored off-site, minimizing risks and costs. Traditional alternative is “on-prem” (on-premises) infrastructure, meaning hardware will be in your offices or on the premises of an outsourced computing provider. Cloud facilities and services can include servers, storage, databases, networking, software, security, analytics and intelligence. Customers can just use web browser to access cloud services and manage their accounts.
Why should I move to the cloud?
Cloud computing resources follow a pay-as-you-go pricing model just like electricity and water bill. It is easy to test multiple configuration in a prototype environment with very little investment and in few minutes.

We can programmatically access more of these resources from shared pools within AWS and Azure, Google almost instantly.
On-premises data centre, the IT team has to build and Manage everything. whether the team is building proprietary solution from scratch or purchasing commercial Software products, they have to install and manage one to many servers, develop and install software, ensure that the proper levels of security are applied, apply patches routinely(Operating systems, firmware, application, database and so on), and much more. each cloud service model provides levels of abstraction and automation for these tasks, thus providing more agility to the cloud service consumers so they can focus more time on their business problems and less time on managing infrastructure.
