History of Cloud Storage
A Cloud Computing is believed to have been invented by Joseph Carl Robnett Licklider in the 1960s with his work on ARPANET to connect people and data from anywhere at any time.
First Cloud Platform
The first online platform for personal and business communication was launched in 1994 by AT&T that is called PersonaLink Services. The storage was one of the first to be all web-based. Amazon Web Services introduced their Cloud Storage Service AWS S3 in 2006, and has gained widespread recognition and adoption as the storage supplier to popular services such as Smugmug, Dropbox, Synaptop and Pinterest. In 2005, Box announced an online file sharing and personal cloud content management service for businesses.
Nowadays, Traditional Cloud storage is a model of data storage in which the digital data is stored in logical pools 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.
