The cloud refers to software and services that run on the Internet, instead of locally on your computer. There’s a good reason why ‘Cloud communication’ is a trending buzzword amongst businesses.

By replacing your on-premise phone systems, companies are discovering new, streamlined methods of communication, while reducing the number of risks. There are a variety of different cloud services including Google Drive, Apple iCloud, Netflix, Yahoo Mail and Dropbox.
