    To be ‘in the cloud’ means that a server and/or application is hosted outside your network environment. An example of an application that is cloud based would be gmail, hotmail, etc. Where your email application is actually running and stored in the cloud (Internet).

    This is typically used by companies to lower onsite upkeep costs and for business continuity in case of a disaster.
