Cloud Storage is a service where data is remotely maintained

Cloud Storage is a service where data is remotely maintained, managed, and backed up. The service is available to users over a network, which is usually the internet. It allows the user to store files online so that the user can access them from any location via the internet. The provider company makes them available to the user online by keeping the uploaded files on an external server. This gives companies using cloud storage services ease and convenience, but can potentially be costly. Users should also be aware that backing up their data is still required when using cloud storage services, because recovering data from cloud storage is much slower than local backup
