The cloud


If the internet is a collection of machines that talk to one another, the cloud is the subset of machines that do most of the talking. More concretely, the cloud is a globally distributed set of climate-controlled buildings—“data centers”—filled with servers. These servers supply the storage and perform the computation for the software running on the internet.
