Cloud computing refers to the processing and storage of your data, on computers and data centres based away from your own premises. Simply put, both users and developers can do more with less, by obtaining access to more computing power whilst reducing the costs of their IT investment. Entrepreneurial SMEs seize these benefits to innovate, to reach wider markets, and to become more competitive. For European governments, cloud computing offers the potential to reduce costs in a time of economic constraints while making data more easily accessible to citizens.
