What is the cloud technology?

  2.  It offers infrastructure for remote computing, storage, and networking, where users pay according to usage (Infrastructure as a Service, IaaS).
  3. It has platforms that offer an integrated system for developing, testing, managing, and updating software, based on remote data centers (Platform as a Service, PaaS).
