What is Cloud Storage ?
According to Wikipedia, " cloud storage , cloud data storage is a model of networked online storage where data is stored on multiple virtual servers, so that you can save your data in different servers and then get access to it from the one nearest to you, wherever you are. "

This is an inevitable service for educators. It is great and allows for a decent storage capacity. Be it PDFs, files, folders, docs, multimedia, photos , Google docs has a solution for you.

2- Evernote
This is my second cloud storage tool that teachers can use to store their data and access them from virtually anywhere  with an internet connection. It also syncs your data across different devices.

This is a service from Windows Live and can be used to store your data on the cloud for free and also to backup and sync your computer files.
