Understanding and Using the Cloud

Maxwell’s Tech Program for Tuesday, June 20, 2017

In general, the Cloud refers to computer resources that are located on a network rather than on your own machine. In the media, the concept often gets reduced to services for storing files (for example, Dropbox, Google Drive, or Onedrive), but there is much more to the Cloud than storage of static files. The Cloud also includes services that work like the applications on your computer to allow you to create and modify text documents, spreadsheets, pictures, videos, and so on.
