A cloud service has three distinct characteristics that differentiate it from traditional hosting. It is sold on demand, typically by the minute or the hour; it is elastic – a user can have as much or as little of a service as they want at any given time; and the service is fully managed by the provider.
Cloud computing is an alternative to traditional hosting often offering more flexibility at a better price. A big concern for many is data security. The cloud providers do a lot to ensure this and encryption can be used on stored data for extra security.
