by Patrick Redknap on March 26, 2014

Working with cloud storage is easy, especially when compared to managing tape or removable media. However, it is still new for many, and as with anything new, it can take a little time to get used to its concepts and interfaces.

There are many cloud storage providers out there to choose from but there are several that stand out!

The top dogs are also supported by PHD Virtual CloudHook!


Amazon S3 is storage for the Internet. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers. Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, secure, fast, inexpensive infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers.
