Information that is stored on the cloud is actually stored on servers all over the country and around the world. The owner of the data almost never knows where their data is. This makes many people nervous because it's only reasonable to assume that if your data is on someone else's servers, they have access to it. It's also reasonable to assume that the security of your data depends on the security of the server that it's on. Luckily, both of these assumptions are myths. The companies that put together cloud storage and computing systems are very reputable and only use storage that is absolutely dependable.
In a similar way, many people think that it is likely for their data to disappear. It doesn't seem impossible for a company to simply take down the server the data is on. While this is unlikely due to the reasons already discussed, there is an even stronger safeguard in place. Every legitimate cloud computing company stores all of your files in at least several places. This makes it so safe that you usually don't even have to worry about keeping your own backups.
Cloud computing seems like such a brilliant process that it should be more expensive than other solutions. In fact, the opposite is the case. The alternative is to set up your own in-house system which requires purchasing servers and other equipment, in addition to paying for people and supplies to maintain it. A cloud computing company already has everything you need, and only charges a nominal fee in order to maintain it because the cost is shared across many companies.
