Cloud storage appeals to small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and larger enterprises as a less-expensive alternative to equipping and managing a full-blown storage system. Two possible uses for the technology are cloud file storage and cloud backup. Imagine being able to move years-old PowerPoint presentations and human resource manuals from your local file system into an inexpensive, cloud-based storage system that someone else manages and secures for you.
