Cloud vs iCloud vs vzCloud

What is the difference between Cloud, iCloud, vsCloud... and maybe other Clouds available through Verizon Wireless for both an iPhone and an Android phone?  On my Galaxy 6, Verizon Cloud tells me that I've used 4GB of the 5GB allowed.  The menu includes the option "Cancel Backup", so the phone MUST be backed up to the Cloud.  But, when I log onto, the usage of the 5GB is zero.  I'd like to manage what is stored in the Cloud from my laptop, rather than the tiny little smartphone screen.  How is this stuff supposed to work?

Rexjanicepeters, there are a lot of different ways to back up your phone now a days. I use cloud storage services to back up my phone. Verizon Cloud (red background white cloud) is the services that we offer for Android phones that you are able to back up pictures, videos, music, contacts and data. To learn more visit The iCloud is specifically only used for Apple products.
