Security & Authentication
The GroupDocs.Storage Cloud API is secured and requires authentication. Users need to register at GroupDocs Cloud and get their app access key ID and app secret access key. Authenticated requests require a signature and AppSID query parameters or OAuth 2.0 authorization header.
Support for Different Cloud Storage Platforms
GroupDocs Cloud is very flexible and allows its users to use their own cloud storage or some other 3rd party storage services they are comfortable with.
GroupDocs Cloud goes beyond limitations and acts as a kind of gateway between a developer and the cloud storage of his users. This will allow you to write your application once, and we'll take care of both the file formats and also letting you support many different cloud storage platforms through a single consistent interface.
