Are there some free clouds that I can use for trying out basic concepts and getting to know it?

I think Google App Engine -if that fits your definition of "cloud"- is free as long as small amounts of data and CPU time are involved.

why do you say that?

small amounts of data and CPU time


means it is a scaled down version and has limitations?

Because "cloud" has no universal definition - you might be asking about Saas, PaaS or IaaS (which are just the most common classifications).

No, it has all the features GAE normally has. It's just that once those limits are reached, you'll be charged.
