Cloud Computing (CC) is an emerging technology aimed at processing and storing very large amounts of data. It is an internet-based technology in which several distributed computers work together to efficiently process large amounts of information, while ensuring the rapid processing of query results to users. Some CC users prefer not to own the physical infrastructure they are using: instead, they rent cloud infrastructure, or a cloud platform or software, from a third-party provider. These infrastructure application options delivered as a service are known as cloud services.
