Is using a cloud like using someone else's computer?
With the general cloud, yes. But new generation hybrid clouds are different, let's learn why.

We learned here how the cloud system works and its pros and cons. Thanks to the cloud, people can work wherever they prefer, connect with loved ones from any distance, and know their data isn't lost when your grip on their phone is. The benefits of storing personal data in a cloud are many, on the other hand people are turning files over to big corporations, in a certain way there is a loss of freedom too. The service of course is not free and often burdened by growing subscription fees, there might be uncertainty about the security of files, and difficulty of leaving ecosystems designed to lock you in.

When "the cloud is just someone else's computer," as the saying goes, what choice do you have? Not much. But what if the cloud can be fully yours? The cloud doesn't need to be someone else's computer anymore!
