Cloud, I’m sure you’re familiar with this word with the growing technological world.
For those of you who are still confused with the grey vapours in the sky, we’re not exactly talking about that.

But big companies aren’t storing their data on a 15 gb limit on a drive account (at least I hope so).
Corporates and IT players use Cloud computing services which in a beginner sense means the storage of databases of these companies as well as computation, analytics, insights and a hundred other functions that various sites offer.
Google seems to dominate the market in cloud computing services with its Google cloud Platform.
