Essentially, Cloud Computing is the term given to accessing your data via the internet, rather than over a Local Network. Your data is still very much held on a server and backed up in the normal way, however, the difference is that the server is NOT in your office/home. The server is held off-site in a secure data centre and you access your data via the internet.
