Cloud computing

An architecture in which computing, and usually storage, is provided from the internet to users (individuals or entire organizations). Cloud computing is generally shared in some manner and available on-demand, to its users. The value of cloud computing lies in the ability of users to consume services without owning or maintaining the physical compute and storage assets that provide those services. Cloud computing may be paid for directly by use or indirectly through, for example, advertising. 

The term is also used to describe data centers available to many users over the Internet. Cheetah Networks PulseView™ allows IoT network operators to understand the real-time performance of IoT services that operate between end-use applications/devices and any cloud provider.
