The first thing we have seen is that the Cloud is not as abstract and ephemeral as its definition conveys. It is far from resembling something like smoke or water vapor. The Cloud is actually made up of computers (servers) connected to the Internet with huge disks that can save files.
When you upload a file to an Internet site, we say that you have stored it in the Cloud.
The word Cloud is more of a marketing term than anything else. It serves to describe those Internet services that do more than just displaying a web page. They allow performing tasks, like saving files or running an accounting program. They are programs or services that are not on your computer, are on the Internet, so it is said that they are in the Cloud.
Cloud Storage provides unlimited capacity
Anyone who has used an electronic device in their life will have encountered a lack of storage space at some time, for example, with their digital camera. There comes a time when there are no more photos, it also often happens with the mobile often.
So, if the Cloud is really physical devices, why do we say its capacity is unlimited? We can say it because the services in the Cloud incorporate capacity tailored to demand.
If you run out of space on your hard drive, the solution is to buy another larger hard drive. The same happens with the providers of the Cloud, what happens is that they do not buy disks measured in Gigabytes, but in TeraBytes, a Terabyte is 1024 Gigabytes. When the storage is filling, they incorporate more storage, they buy it in a big way and get very good prices.pCloud offers top of the line cloud storage services to organizations. pCloud is a Swiss-based corporation offering immaculate services with a one-time subscription cost. It offers data security, file encryption, file management, accessibility, and backup and restore, etc.
Initially, the particular user perceives unlimited storage as a feature that can have as much value as the purchase of another hard drive or another card with more capacity, will depend greatly on the amount of space used. Of course, it is very practical that the mobile memory or the hard disk of the computer is not filled, the point is that you have to go a little further to really appreciate what it means to save files in the Cloud, you have to assess other virtues.
As we have said, for a company, the thing changes a lot, there is a different vision to that of the particular user. To start, the company needs much more storage capacity, and also not any type of storage, it must be one that can be shared with its employees and customers, and that also provides guarantees of security, privacy, and stability, these factors may not be so important for the particular user.
Ubiquity is nothing more than the ability to access files from anywhere and at any time, only an Internet connection is needed. As users have Smartphones and Wi-Fi networks are present anywhere, cloud storage acts as a hard drive accessible from all our devices and at any time.
The documents and files are with us, and also the volume and quantity do not matter.
The sum of the two factors, ubiquity plus unlimited capacity, are undoubtedly the keys to the great success and expansion of this file storage model globally. Every technological revolution is based on an earlier revolution that serves as the basis.
In this case, the grassroots revolution has been Mobility, the incredible expansion of mobile telephony that allows everyone to be permanently connected to the Internet. In addition, each person has several devices and wants to access their files from each of them; the solution to this need is necessarily cloud storage.
