Having seen what I have seen in recent years, I think I can say without fear of being wrong that cloud storage is the future. The space on hard drives and internal memory chips in computers and smartphones, while growing over time, remains limited. Not to mention that it is useless to have 256 GB of memory in a mobile for not being able to recover anything if it breaks. Thus, it seems that the best solution to keep files safe is cloud storage, But what is the best service? Posts to pay, better to pay well.
Cloud services are out there, and surely you know many of them: Google Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, MEGA, Amazon Cloud Drive… All of them offer more or less the same, the only difference being the price per GB of storage – or not. Which is the best? Which one should you choose? Well this, without a doubt.
Best Cloud Storage App (2018)
In order to give this assessment we have compared the price of 1 TB of storage in the main cloud services (Google Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, MEGA and Amazon Cloud Drive) taking into account the annual cost. The prices are those that you have below and, as you can see, if we stick only to the price, the best option is Dropbox, Amazon Cloud Drive or Microsoft OneDrive.
Which one to choose? It is a question that is easily answered. The Amazon and Dropbox cloud is hard-core storage, and that’s it. It offers nothing more than 1 TB of memory for storing files. OneDrive goes further. By 99.99 euros you can have access to Microsoft 365 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote) for five users (that is, for five PCs or Macs, five tablets and five smartphones), in addition to 1 TB of storage for each of them. That is, for 99.99, your whole family can have fully functional Microsoft office automation, in addition to 1 TB of memory.
Additionally, OneDrive has the advantage that is seamlessly integrated into Windows 10, which is the most popular desktop operating system in the world with an 82% market share. If you are looking for a cloud service that works for you, that works well, that offers value and that goes a little beyond simple storage, OneDrive is what you need.
Important: Remember that relying only on the cloud to save your files is a mistake. Here we explain why.
