Question by Radicular: Please help, which type of hardware or software system is used in cloud computing?
I’m not even sure if there is a hardware system. I think there’s only a software system. But which type of system is used for the hardware/software in cloud computing.

I also think maybe there are various types of systems depening and if that’s the case please just don’t say that just give me one type.
