Cloud migration involves moving one’s files and digital assets from traditional, physical storage (e.g., a hard drive or USB flash drive) to the cloud. The cloud simply refers to file storage services provided over the internet. Individuals and businesses can store files on a cloud provider’s servers for retrieval at a later time. 

The advantages to migrating are manifold. Cloud storage enables content creators to access their work from anywhere, while many of the best cloud storage platforms also include useful features for organising, editing, sharing, and collaborating.
