Apple

Better known for computers, phones, tablets and music players Apple does offer a Virtual Cloudsduct. Aimed at individual consumers, iCloud is a cloud storage service for Apple users. The first 5GB are free and you can store documents, photos, music, electronic books and so on. It can be used to back-up mobile Apple devices and for remote access.

The company claims the service has more than 125 million users, although ome of them aren’t happy after being transferred from Apple’s defunct paid-for cloud service MobileMe and have filed a class-action lawsuit. Disgruntled customers said they were left unable to access their email accounts and data.
