is when a company or organization connects many computers to distribute processing power.
Those linked computers would be called that companies 'cloud.' The cloud pulls information from many computers together and then gives the user the final product. This allows for
computing. Cloud computing allows anyone to easily create applications and access them wherever the Internet is reachable. This is extremely convenient because you can access from a variety of devices.

Google App Engine
, which lets you make and access your documents wherever you have access to the internet.
allow people to have everything they need online, instead of having to install programs onto their computers
The third type offers sheer computing resources without a development platform layer, like
Amazon's Elastic Computer Cloud
Cloud computing is undoubtedly going to revolutionize the computer industry. It offers a completely new and creative way to save and access information. On the surface it appears as the perfect solution for all our 'computer crashing' problems. Although at the moment there are many reliability issues concerning cloud computing. Security issues with cloud computing transpire because it is located on the internet, it is susceptible to hackers
that could potentially discover personal information or important financial information.
Cloud computing is changing education for the better. It can be very useful in schools because of the access you can get from anywhere, and the amount of information that is available, not to mention how cheap it is.

from where ever there is a web connection.
Another site that is commonly used is
where students are encouraged to voice their opinions and share what they think.
