The idea of a “cloud” capable of storing data, files, and media online can be confusing and downright terrifying to many – especially in the aftermath of many publicized cloud leaks that have flooded pop culture in recent years. While many envision the cloud as a mysterious, amorphic entity gently hovering through cyberspace while it stores files away into invisible filing cabinets, it has nevertheless emerged as one of the most useful online tools available with many services offering free limited storage and strong security measures providing peace of mind.

Visualistan has put together a clever infographic breaking down the anatomy of the cloud, shedding light onto the shadows that have mystified even those who regularly use it in their everyday business or personal lives.
