More and more of our data can be stored in the cloud such as our photos and documents. Rather than data being stored locally on your hard drive or smartphone, they can be uploaded through the Internet so you can access them later from anywhere. Recently the news of hacked celebrity iCloud accounts has painted a negative picture of cloud storage however, putting that aside storing data in the cloud is pretty handy. Today we will have a look at why you might want to consider storing some of your data in the cloud.
You should always backup your irreplaceable data such as photos in case of hard drive failure. While this is unlikely, storing files in the cloud will mean your data is safe even if your computer explodes and rockets through a pit of crocodiles.
Storing data in the cloud means you can access it from anywhere. If you have a file on your computer, uploading it to the cloud will allow you to easily download it to your other devices such as your smartphone.
Save storage space
While cloud storage often does not store much data, at least on a free plan, it does help free some space on devices with low available storage space such as smartphones.
All of these reasons combined can make it ideal to store some data within a cloud for some users. If you wish to have a secure backup of your files which are easy to access then cloud storage is certainly worth checking out.
