# CloudPut vs CloudSave vs CloudExport vs CloudPublish vs

There are a lot of I-O functions in the Wolfram cloud and I'm getting confused between them. Can someone give a definitive answer as to when to use one or the other?

• Have you looked at the differences between Put, Save, and Export? – Jason B. Apr 26 at 16:39
• Yes, but then there is also Publish, Deploy, Share... And the MIME types of the data that is saved into the cloud is different per function. There is a proliferation of these functions and having a nice explanation highlighting the differing usages couldn't hurt... – M.R. Apr 26 at 17:06
