Prior the internet came, cloud hosting or computing was not there. Simply, it could not. However, it is not going to be the future. As per the prediction, data centers in 2018 will start disable and the cloud storage would win this game. Cloud is basically online storage system that is uniquely designed in order to duplicate and fragment the data across various locations. In a scenario of failure, cloud systems make sure that there should be always backup of the data. In simple words, it is the only method anything on cloud could ever destroy if internet itself not exists for longer duration.
