Basics

What is the cloud?

The cloud refers to places on the Internet, such as SkyDrive, where you can save all sorts of information such as 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.

The cloud and Windows Phone

It can also refer to tools that are designed specifically to be used online. For example, you can use Microsoft Word Web App, Excel Web App, PowerPoint Web App, and OneNote Web App in your web browser with Microsoft Office 365, in SkyDrive, or on a Microsoft SharePoint site. You can share the documents with others or keep them private.
