What is it really?   Why if you question 10 tech professionals will you get 10 different answers......

Interested in hearing your definition and your background reference point.  After 9 of you respond I'll give you mine and perhaps we can discuss.

Bottom line is that storage is not on your computer.  It's on a server up up and away.

Well it really depends on what you mean by top.

But 3 that would be on any list.

Google
Apple
Microsoft

And for good measure ones that you wouldn't think about.

AT&T
IBM

why anybody would want to store their personal stuff they have on their computers on some server, so people running the servers can see all your garbage, let alone hackers attacking those sites to get your stuff.

No thanks, i will keep my garbage on my computer and just buy more hard drives if i need them.
