Can someone explain "Cloud Storage"
The initial Wikipedia paragraph is, to me, a bunch of goddledigoop.
It appears to be a way to buy or rent (or even for free) some storage space for our files (e.g. photos) uploaded to somewhere in the internet world, and access them via the internet.
What I'd like to know in general is:
1) Is there any "general" cloud that one can use, or are there a whole bunch of "company-specific" clouds that one must search-research?
2) Are there any free, (and if so, how to access them) and how much "space" is available?
3) The Pro-Cons of cloud space (speed of access, risk of loss, etc. etc.)
Anyway, I'll skip the rest of the questions (regarding property theft, security, etc. etc.) but would like folks that are using it to be good enough to explain cloud.
