Basically cloud computing is a data center on-demand. It is an unstructured infrastructure owned and operated by someone outside of its customers' company that accepts and runs workloads created by its customers. Previously, if a company needed more computing power, it added more servers, but for a small company, this is not cost effective. Using cloud computing, a company can plug into the Internet to access more computing power, which is scalable; meaning that as the demand changes, the cloud system will scale up or down.
