What are Cloud Services?
Cloud services encompasses any technology function available to users through cloud platforms, such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Traditionally, organizations developed applications or hosted software, email, data storage, and backups in-house. Now these functions are available over the Internet through cloud computing platforms—without installing software or purchasing the infrastructure to support internal services and applications.
If you are considering migrating all or some of your business applications or software development to the cloud, selecting a platform can be confusing. The right platform depends on your organizations individual needs.
