uCloud, iCloud, we allCloud for...

What is in a cloud?   In today's society, being "connected" is all about having updated information and access  from Facebook to Twitter to email's, tagging and everything in between.

Let's cover a few topics to get started because picking the right cloud is important.  First off, what is cloud? It's basically an online backup storage that allows you to upload documents from any device and have access to it in the future, as well as share with others.  Some automatically upload or "sync" your files according to your settings.

How to pick the best cloud for you.  Depending on your own needs here are a few tips to look out for:
1. What are your requirements? Are you using MAC, PC, tablets, or "i" anything?  Identifying what types of software, hardware and operating will help you determine which cloud is better for your device. Some simply work better with some but not others.

2. How much are you willing to pay or not pay? Due to advancements in technology, the cost is now a fraction of what it once was. Depending on your needs some free storage space is available but limited to its size.

3. What is the amount of available storage that is needed?  If it's the occasion image, folder, file or data several g's may suffice and there are plenty of re.  However, as we put our digital life on "online" sites uploading is more frequent, images are larger and and our files grow with the experiences that we want to share.

4.What kind of data will it allow me to store?  If your like most, music is a high priority. Check to see if it offers the type of sharing that you need or if it simply holds your music files so that you can quickly download and/or share your artsy side.

These are just a few and the following link has their best reviews, for more detailed information take a look

Just remember when it rains, it pours.  Be prepared by having access to your personal and professional documents and information when you need them.
