Cloud has a wide meaning in the industry; however, it generally refers to leveraging the part of a larger infrastructure to run corporate workloads.
Cloud allows you to stop making large capital-intensive hardware and software purchases and rent only the computing and software resources you need on a monthly basis.
Traditional businesses have typically needed to invest heavily if they wanted to build a reliable IT infrastructure. Typically, this involved purchasing expensive servers, renovating office space to provide reliable environmental and power to your server room.
Your IT team would need to forecast your computing requirements for the next 3-5 years at the time of each infrastructure purchase. Additionally, your office becomes a critical piece of the computing environment unless you are ready to invest in costly disaster recovery systems.
