Introduction to cloud storage

Cloud storage refers to a secure, shared location where files are stored. Once stored, they can then be accessed from anywhere if you have a connection to the internet. Now, documents aren't really stored in a mythical place called "the cloud." They are stored on secure servers all over the world. The Microsoft cloud storage option is called OneDrive and it can be used alone or as part of SharePoint or Teams.

Once your files are stored in OneDrive, they are automatically backed up and are accessible from any mobile device that has a connection to the internet. Files stored in OneDrive can be shared with an individual, a group, or your entire organization. Once a document has been shared, you can work with multiple people using the latest collaboration features that Word has to offer, such as tracking changes, reviewing, and commenting. A document that's shared to OneDrive can also be edited by multiple people in real time.
