What does "cloud-based" mean?

Printer-friendly version

Cloud-based applications live on the Internet rather than on your local computer (cloud is really just another word for the Internet). The major advantage for you as a user is that you can access those applications wherever you are, as long as you have an Internet connection. You can choose to store the documents associated with those applications in the cloud too, so you can access the equivalent of your working desktop wherever you are.
