Cloud storage is a model of computer data storage in which the digital data is stored in logical pools , said to be on " the cloud ". The physical storage spans multiple servers sometimes in multiple locations , and the physical environment is typically owned and managed by a hosting company. These cloud storage providers are responsible for keeping the data available and accessible , and the physical environment protected and running. People and organizations buy or lease storage capacity from the providers to store user, organization, or application data. Cloud storage services may be accessed through a colocated cloud computing service, a web service application programming interface API or by applications that utilize the API, such as cloud desktop storage, a cloud storage gateway or Web -based content management systems. In , CompuServe offered its consumer users a small amount of disk space that could be used to store any files they chose to upload.

Control who can access your data
Fedora Cloud images are designed to be run and managed as scale-out undifferentiated "cattle", while Fedora Server is intended for more "pet-like" individually-managed servers. See this presentation if you aren't familiar with the pets-vs-cattle cloud computing metaphor. This helps address some of the blurry lines between the Cloud and Server products. It gives an easy path for someone who wants to run a traditional server in a public or private cloud environment to get there from images we provide. And, if someone's intended-to-be-cattle server starts developing a personality, this gives a way to deal with that. Will work with Cloud and Server SIG members to develop the script and documentation and policies around it.
