Cloud Storage

What is the Cloud? The cloud allows you to save files on the internet instead of directly on your computer. There are many reasons to use the cloud, but the main reasons are convenience and reliability. Saving a file to the cloud ensures that you'll be able to access it with any computer that has an Internet connection, so you won't need to worry about using USB flash drives. The cloud also makes it much easier to share a file with coworkers and friends.
