What is the “Cloud”

Are you syncing?

People always ask me about the cloud

What is the “cloud”? the Cloud is a space on the internet that you can store your digital data. So when you check your e-mail its stored on the “e-mail” server.

My general rules for cloud

Security is a must, long passwords i.e. over 8 characters, mix of numbers, letters, symbols
Never store anything on a cloud service that is not backed up on your local computer.
If the cloud service closed would you be ok to loose what what stored on the cloud?
Backup, backup, backup
