Storing your data in the cloud has many advantages, such as easily viewing and managing your files from any device connected to the internet. Many cloud services also offer instantaneous backup, preserving files even if you lose your phone or your computer crashes. The University of Illinois has contracts with several services that provide additional benefits, such as larger storage allocations. The following tables compare the benefits of a University account against a personal account for three major cloud services.
