The storage framework is basically a way to provide access to arbitrary cloud 
storage services, such as Owncloud or Dropbox, with a single API. It’s built as 
a client-server library that provides a storage access API that clients can use 
to upload and download files, navigate the contents of the cloud store, etc. 
There is also a server-side API that allow new providers to be added to the 
machinery. Basically, a provider implementation is a piece of adapter code that 
receives requests for file access from the storage framework runtime and then 
makes corresponding requests using the cloud service’s REST API. We also plan 
to add a local filesystem provider.

With the storage framework, higher-level services, such as backup or syncing, 
can be layered on top.

It’s early days yet. The client-side API is still going through changes, and 
the server-side API may also still end up with some tweaks. Consider it alpha 
code for now.
