Cloud computing is a type of Internet-based computing that provides shared computer processing resources and data to computers and other devices on demand. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., computer networks, servers, storage, applications and services).
Provides a variety of cloud-based computing services including a wide selection of compute instances which can scale up and down automatically to meet the needs of your application, a managed load balancing service as well as fully managed desktops in the cloud.
It is a data synchronization service that helps you securely manage and synchronize app data for your users across their mobile devices. You can create unique identities for your users through a number of public login providers (Amazon, Facebook, and Google) and also support unauthenticated guests.
Fully managed relational and NoSQL database services, as well as fully managed in-memory caching as a service and a fully managed petabyte-scale data-warehouse service. Or, you can operate your own database in the cloud.
Low-cost data storage with high durability and availability. Pay-as-you-go pricing with no commitment means greater flexibility and agility.High security is available at no extra cost. Cloud offers storage choices for backup, archiving, and disaster recovery, as well as block, file, and object storage.
