Have you heard of cloud storage or perhaps cloud computing, but always wondered what it was exactly? It’s possible that you have seen it somewhere before, perhaps in an advertisement or on the packaging of a new computer or tablet device. Chances are none of them explained exactly what cloud computing and cloud storage in particular does.
Let’s start with the basics, what is the cloud? Contrary to the word and image, it’s not in the sky, but is a series of large supercomputers with near limitless storage capability. Until recently, users had to rely upon the memory capabilities of their devices from computers to phones. Storing information could soon fill the device up and cause its performance to drop. The cloud allows users to store their documents, photos, and videos on a secure server somewhere else instead, freeing up memory for improved performance.
