What is cloud Storage ?

At most basic level, a cloud storage system needs just one data server connected to the internet. A client sends copies of files over the Internet to the data server, which then saves the data. When the client wishes to retrieve the data, he or she accesses the data server through a Web-based interface pointing to that service provider. The server then either sends the files back to the client or allows the client to access and edit the files on the server itself.
