What makes cloud storage different from other on-line storage options?

Traditional on-line storage options—such as iSCSI or NAS—provide a stateful connection between the location of stored data and
the user requesting data. Cloud storage provides a stateless connection that can be accessed via a private network or through a
public channel such as the Internet. Cloud storage enables new capabilities for new and existing applications—providing an as
needed, scalable environment rather than fixed storage capacity seen with traditional storage options.
