Salesforce is a cloud technology. Just imagine salesforce as a big apartment complex. If you buy a small 2 bedroom portion in a 1000 unit apartment complex, you own only one single unit of 1500 SFT. But you still get the benefits of other amenities of that complex like, Gym, Community hall, Swimming pool, Pantry, Walking trail etc..
In the same way if you buy a small portion of a big server with salesforce company to install your company application, you still get other benefits like regular maintenance of server, regular backups, patch installations, security etc…
Now-a-days lot of people in IT industry are wondering about the new technology salesforce. Let me get into that straight.
