The next version of Microsoft's operating system, or Windows 8, "will represent an incredible opportunity to bring the benefits of the Personal cloud to billions of pc users", says a blog post signed by the SkyDrive group program managers, the cloud service for the Microsoft consumer world. This most likely means that the cloud will be deeply integrated into Microsoft's new operating system and SkyDrive will become one of the central functions. The service was launched in 2007 and was defined as "a personal hard disk on the Internet". Today it represents one of the leading players in the cloud services market for end users and contends the market with Dropbox, iCloud, SugarSync and Amazon Cloud Drive. In Microsoft's post we also read some statistics, based on interviews conducted with customers of the Redmond company. 22% of users say they use cloud services to store photos and 1% also documents. To better define the market, Omar Shahine and Mike Torres of Microsoft, have divided this new market into three segments Cloud file: cloud services that maintain the traditional structure of files and folders (such as SkyDrive and DropBox) .Device clouds: a device-centric cloud service, which "hides" the folder structure, such as iCloud.App clouds: services that completely embrace the cloud philosophy and allow you to collaborate among the "clouds". Even this careful segmentation made by Microsoft suggests that the cloud is increasingly in Microsoft's thoughts and strategies.
