You might well already use cloud storage, but if you don’t it’s time you started, as you can free up space, back your content up and take more advantage of the high data allowances Three offers all in one.

Below we’ll explain exactly what the cloud and cloud storage is, what you might want to use it for and what some of the best cloud storage providers are, so whether you’re completely new to it or are just looking for new cloud storage suggestions we’ve got you covered.

What is the cloud?

The cloud is essentially the internet, but when we talk about storing something in the cloud what that means is uploading it somewhere, so you can access it from anything with an internet connection.

You could think of it like an external hard drive that’s wirelessly accessible from anywhere in the world.

And there’s a good chance you’re already using it even if you don’t realise it. For example, if you’re a Three customer with Go Binge, chances are you use a lot of Snapchat, and all your Memories on that are saved to Snapchat’s cloud storage system.

While if you use Kindle or other eBook software then chances are your books are stored in the cloud so that they’re accessible from other devices.

What are the benefits of the cloud?

There are lots of potential benefits to the cloud, but the three main ones are the ability to back up your data, easy access to your data, and the ability to free up space.

Starting with the first of those, ‘cloud storage’ is a storage system which lets you back up pictures, videos, music, documents and potentially any other type of file.

Some cloud storage systems support all file types while others focus on one or two. You can find examples of good cloud storage providers below, but it’s worth backing up anything important in the cloud, even if you have it saved on your phone or computer, because that way if anything happens to your device you can still access your data.

You can even store device backups in the cloud, so it’s easy to restore all your contacts, messages and the like if you change phones.

Which brings us to the second main point – because you can access cloud storage anywhere with an internet connection, on a phone, tablet or computer, it makes getting at your content very easy. There’s no need to carry it around on a USB stick, it’s always just accessible from whatever device you happen to be using.

Many cloud storage providers also make it easy to share your content with others if you want to.
