What is Wayback Machine and what is it used for

Last Modified: 2015-02-27
We were a sent a link of our website.  We google for info about it and it seem some sort web-crawler (example http://web.archive.org/web/20150915000000*/http://domain-some-name.com).  The link says "This calendar view maps the number of times http://domain-some-name.com) was crawled by the Wayback Machine, not how many times the site was actually updated".  

What is this and what is it used for?

Thank you.
