C. A cloud service
Cloud services refer to a wide range of services delivered on-demand to companies and customers over the internet. They provide easy, affordable access to applications and resources without the need for internal infrastructure or hardware. All infrastructure, platforms, software, or technologies that users access through the internet without requiring additional software downloads can be considered cloud computing services. Cloud software can be provided using a cloud-native approach, which is an application architecture combining small, independent, and loosely coupled microservices.
