Desperate computer users might delete entire folders worth of old files in order to make space for new information. But some are choosing to rely on a growing trend: cloud storage. Cloud storage is an area which is the latest burst. For individual computer owners it is the safest and most economical. Enterprise Storage such as Backup, Disaster Recovery in cloud are still pondered over by bigger organizations but are getting easy acceptance by small industries to use cloud for their storage purposes.
