What is the difference between a cloud drive and a local drive?
They are fundamentally different. In a local drive, data must be stored on a physical device that you have to physically connect to in order to access the data.

What should we consider when introducing a cloud drive?
Highly dependent on server providers
If the cloud service provider experiences a server issue, you may be unable to access your data temporarily. It is highly recommended to back up essential data elsewhere to prevent data loss in case of problems with cloud service providers.
While cloud drives provide convenience for storing and sharing data, it's essential to be mindful of security, as data is stored on an external server. It is highly recommended to use encryption and other security measures to protect your data safely.
