cloud music storage

Storing a user's music collection in the cloud to save local storage space and enable streaming to multiple devices. The services typically use the freemium model, whereby a certain amount of storage is free and additional storage is paid. Amazon Cloud Music, Google Play Music, My Music Cloud and iTunes Match are examples. See cloud storage.
