These days, given the huge volumes of data we keep with us, even a 1 TB hard disk can let you down.
Many times you would have pressed the ‘delete’ button to do away with files you are emotionally attached with due to paucity of space in your storage devices. We can understand how heartbreaking that can be. Well, those days are now over. The new cloud storage technology is here to put an end to your woes. It enables you toupload, share and access files wherever or whenever you want.
We tell you about the top 5 cloud storage options you have:
Windows Live Mesh
It is an integral part of the Windows Live Essentials. Just like other programs which come bundled with it, Mesh is free. It has a neat and clean interface and allows you to access files via PC or Web. If you have a SkyDrive account, you can store up to 25 GB.
Dropbox makes sharing really simple. 2GB of storage is available for free and you can extend the limit up to 100GB, as per the nature of the plan. It works really well with BlackBerry, Android, iPhone, Windows, Linux and Macs. Dropbox allows users to share and collaborate, and work on the same document at the same time. And it’s really very kind on the internet speed as well.
Amazon Cloud Drive
Yet another amazing offering from the guys at Amazon. You can store your music, photos, and other documents on Amazon’s cloud server. It is being called as one of the safest places in the world to park your data. To begin with, it comes with 5 GB of storage. But there’s no reason to worry. You can opt for plans which can offer your huge spaces on the cloud server.
This has been around for some time but has not been able to put a challenge to Dropbox when it comes to popularity levels. For starters, it offers 5 GB of storage. For advanced users, personal and enterprise plans are available. SugarSync ia capable from accessing files from all devices one can think of. It also syncs file to the cloud automatically. A great way to access your files while you’re “on the go.”
Another great cloud service which provides options for both personal and professional use. Just like its counterparts, it provides 5GB of storage space for free.Some of its unique features, as the company claims, are configurable permissions, redundant storage, and SSL encryption.
