If you've ever looked into hosting a website or app, you'll have come across the term cloud hosting. Instead of hosting your website or app on a single machine, the cloud allows you to spread your data across multiple, interconnected servers, located across a wide geographical area. These servers only exist in a virtual environment — hence the name cloud. The fact that cloud hosting utilises the computing power of numerous machines means that not only do you have vastly more potential than you would through traditional hosting, you also have access to the services those machines offer. This is where things start to get interesting.

Cloud hosting is a type of web hosting which uses multiple different servers to balance the load and maximize uptime. This means that even if one server fails, another kicks in to keep everything running. Visualise the cloud as a web of different computers which are all interconnected. As more machines are hooked up to the network, more resources are added to the overall cloud.
