What is cloud storage?
Cloud storage is a cloud computing model in which data is stored on remote servers accessed from the internet, or 'cloud'. It is managed, operated and managed by a cloud storage service provider on a storage server based on virtualization techniques.
Cloud storage is also known as utility storage - a term that can be differentiated based on the actual implementation and provision of services.
Cloud storage works through the virtualization of data centers and offers end users and applications a virtual storage architecture that is scalable according to application requirements. In general, the cloud storage is operated via a web-based API that is implemented remotely via the interaction with the internal cloud storage infrastructure of the client application for input / output (I / O) and read / write (R / W) operations will.
When cloud storage is provided through a public service provider, it is known as utility storage. Private cloud storage offers the same scalability, flexibility and storage mechanisms with restricted or non-public access.
