Cloud computing is a term that reaches from the lowest piece of computer hardware all the way up to the highest level of web and mobile services. Think about these cloud computing companies and their services:
- Google's search is a cloud service.
- Salesforce.com is a cloud company.
- Apple's iTunes is music and entertainment in the cloud.
- Amazon Web Services is cloud computing.
- Microsoft's Azure.
