personal cloud storage

A form of cloud storage that applies to storing an individual’s data in the cloud and providing the individual with access to the data from anywhere. Personal cloud storage also often enables syncing and sharing stored data across multiple devices such as mobile phones and tablet computers. Personal cloud storage is also frequently referred to as mobile cloud storage or pocket cloud storage.

Apple's iCloud, Google Drive, Windows SkyDrive and Amazon's Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) are currently the most popular examples of personal cloud storage. Hard drive manufacturers are increasingly providing personal cloud storage services as well via offerings like the Western Digital MyBook Live and Seagate GoFlex lines of hard drives.
