By now, you’ve probably heard of cloud storage, but like many Internet users, you might not understand what it is. Cloud storage refers to information that is saved off-site and is available through an Internet connection.
Cloud storage allows users to free up space on their hard drives or local devices. The information saved on “the cloud” can be accessed at any time, anywhere, from any device. Owners of the information can even share it so that multiple people can have access to it at once. This becomes extremely helpful when you need many people working on one document.
Cloud storage systems are housed inside data centres. Information is saved on several different machines so that even if one needs to be repaired, clients can still get their data without a hitch. This is known as redundancy. Data centres also run on several different power supplies, so clients can continually access their data even if one power supply is not working.
Cloud storage has become one of the best and easiest ways to back up your files, keep your files synchronized, and increase productivity.
