    I always think of Cloud computing as "someone elses computer". Same rules apply in most cases but the "someone else" might care of certain tasks so you don't have to. From the looks of your certs you have the basics of computing so basics of cloud will come to you. If you want to learn about cloud platforms look into AWS Cloud Practitioner or Azure fundamentals. There are some good udemy courses that cost $10 - $15 which will give you the fundamentals.

    I think the free Microsoft material on Azure Fundamentals is a good start with just learning some general cloud concepts minus the Azure specific topics.

    On the following link, there are modules that cover topics such as defining cloud computing, key cloud concepts, services, models, and more:
