What is Cloud Storage?


Cloud storage is a saving device that allows its users to save files and data and have the capacity to access it wherever and whenever you need it as long as you have an internet connection. It has features that allow multiple users to access one file simultaneously with people who have granted permission. You can also back up and retrieve your files easily using Cloud storage.

Many individuals and business owners are using it for different purposes. It is commonly known as Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box. It is offering free storage with limited space. Nevertheless, users can always upgrade to paid subscriptions if they prefer to have more extensive storage for their files and data.
