Now the IT industry loves cloud computing more than ever before. The cloud computing industry is considered to be the fourth IT industry revolution after mainframe computers, personal computers and the Internet. The IT industry has entered the cloud era. For large and small enterprises in the IT industry, cloud computing is a purgatory. In fact, in a sense, cloud computing is not a brand-new technology. It is spawned by the objective demand for effective integration of IT resources after the accumulation of informatization to a certain extent. Therefore, in the whole development process of cloud computing, we will see many technologies and application modes we have seen in the past.

The concept of cloud computing is now very clear. The reason why cloud computing can rise rapidly in recent years is that users are eager to make full use of IT resources to provide real-time and on-demand efficient services to businesses. Cloud computing specifically refers to: in a narrow sense, cloud computing refers to the delivery and use mode of IT infrastructure, and refers to obtaining the required resources through the network in an on-demand and easy to expand way; Cloud computing refers to the mode of easy to use, expand and deliver services on demand. This service can be it, software, Internet related, or other services.

This is a core concept of cloud computing. In fact, a simple understanding is to uniformly manage and schedule a large number of computing resources connected by the network to form a computing resource pool to serve users on demand. The network that provides resources is called “cloud”. This “cloud” service can be enjoyed at any time, but it is paid.

Having said so much about cloud computing, what is cloud storage? How far has cloud storage developed? Cloud storage is a new concept extended and developed from the concept of cloud computing. It refers to the collection of a large number of different types of storage devices in the network through application software through the functions of cluster application, grid technology or distributed file system.

A system that jointly provides data storage and business access functions. When the core of cloud computing system operation and processing is the storage and management of a large amount of data, a large number of storage devices need to be configured in the cloud computing system, then the cloud computing system will be transformed into a cloud storage system. Therefore, cloud storage is a cloud computing system with data storage and management as the core.

Just like the cloud like Wan and Internet, cloud storage for users does not refer to a specific device, but an aggregate composed of many storage devices and servers. When users use cloud storage, they do not use a storage device, but a data access service brought by the whole cloud storage system. So strictly speaking, cloud storage is not storage, but a service.

From the perspective of the relationship between the two, the relationship between cloud storage and cloud computing is well understood. Compared with cloud storage and cloud computing, cloud storage can be considered as a cloud computing system with large storage space.

In the future, the application of cloud computing will go deeper into our daily life. In the future, cloud storage based on cloud computing will go deeper into the current mobile Internet industry. Our current smart phones will have a large-capacity cloud storage in the future. As mentioned above, cloud storage is not a physical object, but a service, and the market potential in the future is huge.
