There are many choices for cloud services that you can use for personal files or business backups. Most offer some free storage, from as little as two up to 25 gigabytes which is great. If you need more you can pay for it, so you have virtually unlimited cloud storage available to you at all times. Again that is great.
However you have another choice. You can set up your own cloud service right in your home or office. And it costs nothing (assuming you have a computer and internet access).
If you set up your own cloud storage solution you will have access to it not only on your own network, but also from anywhere in the world. You will have a desktop application that you (or whoever you choose) can access your private cloud from. You will also have an Android and IOS app that you can use on your mobile devices to access your cloud storage.
You could also set up access to cloud storage for anyone you want. They will have their own user id and password and access to their own storage area. They will use the same desktop and mobile apps to access their cloud storage area.
Setting this up is easy and fairly non technical. There are tools to help you get it all going. All you need is an old (or not) computer and internet access and you are ready to roll! The cloud server will run on Windows, Mac and Linux systems.
