Awan is a Malay word of 'Cloud'. Awan is an exclusive private cloud storage for Sabah Forestry Department's staff to store and share their files anywhere and anytime they want. Either it is in their desktop when in the office, mobile phone or tablet when they are mobile. It was developed using an open-source web application, ownCloud.
Constructed for a better utilization of webspace, privacy and uses, Awan is a solution to the most problem faced today for inadequate spaces offered by free cloud storage services offered in the world wide web. Offering from the 512MB space up to 10GB of storage for each user, Awan enable each of the files to be uploaded from any platform (desktop, mobile and tablet) regardless of the operating system.

What is Cloud Storage?
Cloud storage means "the storage of data online in the cloud," wherein a company's data is stored in and accessible from multiple distributed and connected resources that comprise a cloud.
Cloud storage can provide the benefits of greater accessibility and reliability; rapid deployment; strong protection for data backup, archival and disaster recovery purposes; and lower overall storage costs as a result of not having to purchase, manage and maintain expensive hardware.
What is Cloud?
Cloud is also referred to as a network cloud. In telecommunications, a cloud refers to a public or semi-public space on transmission lines (such as T1 or T3) that exists between the end points of a transmission. Data that is transmitted across a WAN enters the network from one end point using a standard protocol suite such as Frame Relay and then enters the network cloud where it shares space with other data transmissions. The data emerges from the cloud -- where it may be encapsulated, translated and transported in myriad ways -- in the same format as when it entered the cloud. A network cloud exists because when data is transmitted across a packet-switched network in a packet, no two packets will necessarily follow the same physical path. The unpredictable area that the data enters before it is received is the cloud.
