This Meeting's Subject:  Cloud Storage

Cloud storage means different things and comes in different forms. GGCS member Marcelino Nogueiro will discuss the major types of cloud storage, how they work, what you can do with them. Some are used for printing while others are ideally suited to transferring files from a phone/tablet to a computer. Some are meant for having your data everywhere, while others are meant for backup, which is quite different. Some are included free with products; others have different pricing. Included in his talk will be:

  • Carbonite
  • Dropbox
  • Flikr
  • Google Drive
  • iCloud (Apple)
  • OneDrive (Microsoft)
