Cloud storage by definition is “the storage of data online in the cloud”.  You can store data in the cloud and access it anywhere, anytime, and with any device: smartphone, tablet, or computer.  The ability to have access to any of your documents is a great relief and convenience.  It can also serve as a dependable back up system for incidents where you may have lost all files.  Like anything in life, you have many choices and it can be overwhelming when having to make your final decision.  Below are some of the most recommended sources to help you decide.
