There are many good reasons to use Internet-based file storage. Perhaps you want a off-site storage location that would survive a disaster or you want to share files with people outside the school. It allows you to access a file that would otherwise be locked in the school's file server until the next time you come to work.
Internet storage has been around for years, but the prices are going down and many schools and home users have the high-speed Internet connections required to make the experience bearable. This particular system, Elephant Drive, is currently in beta and thus free to try. They don't say what their price structure will be, but it is certainly worth testing it out.
