Cloud file sharing is the process of using cloud computing-based technologies to share files between different users.
It utilizes cloud storage and collaboration services to enable file sharing over the Internet between global multiple users.
Cloud file sharing works when a file is stored on an online or cloud file-sharing service. The file is uploaded using the service control panel and upon successful upload the file is generated with a unique URL. File owners can share this URL with multiple users for accessing and downloading the file. The file is stored on the file-sharing provider’s cloud storage servers and can be accessed globally at any time though the Internet.
