NextCloud: discover this storage platform
Let’s return to the definition of Cloud Computing
Cloud Computing is a solution for storing and delivering resources and services over the Internet. Unlike local storage, to benefit from it, there is no need to save the resources to be backed up to a hard disk. In fact, these will be accessible online, from an Internet connection.
The computer storage space is therefore a service, free or paid for according to your needs. This is shared between several users, and so is called shared storage. Nevertheless, everyone has a private space where they can save their data: text, video, audio, application files, etc. However, there are also private cloud solutions: these are generally offered to companies to offer them more security.
Cloud Computing offers many advantages, and that's what we’re about to see now.
