The Cloud Explained
The cloud is best explained as a remote server that you can access over local or remote connection.
Instead of storing your content, such as your work, music, pictures on your local hard drive or your external hard drive, you’d store them on a remote server.
Another method of the cloud would be the all time popular applications like DropBox, Google Drive and SugarSync. Uploading your documents, and pictures to these services provide a safe haven, should your hard drive crash and not have any backups. The cloud is not just for backups, but it also gives the ability to work remotely.
In summary, the cloud are really just servers that are not local to your computer. Not a flash drive, not an external hard drive. Some companies run their own cloud, within their organization, to provide remote access to work files and data, from wherever it may be needed.
