“The shift to the personal cloud will accelerate rapidly in 2012 as consumers learn how to use new services on their devices,” said Andrew Johnson, a Gartner analyst. “As cloud services become part of people’s lives, device vendors and platform providers must integrate cloud services in order to win customers in 2012 or risk being displaced by those that offer these services.”
Cloud services allow users to store, synch, stream and share content over the internet. Instead of relying on local hard drive to store media files, people can keep everything they need in the cloud. Brands such as Apple iCloud, Google’s cloud and Amazon’s cloud are market leaders in this space.
