Cloud-based computing is becoming more popular every day. It’s a very reliable technology mostly used by people who uses mobile devices as well as a few computers every day. Cloud based computing basically uses cloud based storage which you can use to store data and digital media.
Cloud based computing involves the use of web-based networks which the users can make use of by uploading and storing computer files. These uploaded computer files are securely stored and of course, you can access the files from electronic devices like Mobile phones, tablets and computers from anywhere and all it requires is an internet connection in any of these devices.
If it still isn’t clear, just consider the computer at your home. It will obviously have a lot of files; say music which would be your favorites. You can’t listen to the music with your home computer if you aren’t home. If you can upload these music files in a cloud network, you can access them from anywhere using a mobile device or another computer with an internet connection, and play them as well.
Certain websites provide the users who have accounts in their sites, with free cloud-drive storage space. Amazon, one of the World’s largest online stores, provides the Amazon account holders with a free cloud-drive storage space of 5 GB. This online space can store files like
Full HD video files (of probably 20 minutes duration)
There are other sites which require you to follow certain steps so as to make use of their cloud storage space. So you own cloud drive in any site is like an online personal pen drive; one you can use to save your personal files, which you frequently access, so that you can access them from anywhere even if are not home.
Amazon’s free cloud-drive space offers up to 5 GB space for unlimited access from anywhere. The Amazon cloud space is also very secure and you don’t need to worry if you would lose the files. It’s basically more secure than a pen drive. Amazon doesn’t require you to pay or make purchases from the site, in order to use their cloud storage space.
It’s absolutely free. 5 GB would be more than enough to store text based files, a lot of music files and even HD files that come under the size. All you need is an account in Amazon. If you don’t have one, just open one account and start using the free 5 GB Cloud-storage online drive.
