What is the cloud?
The cloud refers to places on the Internet, such as OneDrive, where you can save all sorts of information, including photos, music, documents, and videos—really anything that works like a file—and easily get it later from a computer, phone, TV, or other device with an Internet connection.
It can also refer to tools that are designed specifically to be used online. For example, you can use Office Online in your web browser with Microsoft Office 365, on OneDrive, or on a Microsoft SharePoint site. Then you can share the documents or notes you've created with others, or keep them private.
