Personal cloud storage (PCS) is an online web service that provides server space for individuals to store data, photos, videos and other files. Many service providers offer a limited amount of personal cloud storage space for free, hoping that once the customer feels comfortable with the service, he will purchase additional space to back up or archive other files  

To facilitate the transfer of data, a PCS provides the customer with a simple web interface. Once the files are uploaded to the provider's servers, they can be accessed through a web portal at any time from any Internet-connected device.
