Long Version - In ☁️, you get computing resources on-demand and on self-service.  You get processing power, storage, and network you need, without human intervention.  You don't have to know about the exact physical location The resources are elastic and highly scalable, and you can scale up or down anytime. Some of the most famous services that you'd be using rn are - Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Photos etc.
