Storage of digital information used to be in terms of megabytes (MB), then grew into terms of gigabytes (GB) and now digital information, especially regarding storage, is in terms of terabytes (TB). This is because of the growth of the internet in general and especially high speed internet, the vast amount of downloadable info and especially in the area of videos – which use a very large amount of data. Also, many people now use their computer as their file cabinet, photo album(s), record (music) collection.

In addition to needing to store all of these things, people want to access this info from multiple devices (home computer and smart phone in particular) and even share their stored info with family and friends. The popular and growing solution for this is known as “cloud storage”. This is basically a company’s data storage computers that you can use to store, access, and share your digital information.
