  • Generally, we store data on our Laptop or desktop, pen drives and external hard discs. But instead of having so many devices with us, we can get this could space so that we can store data there. Cloud storage is nothing but storing our data on a third-party server without compromising the security of the information for a minor cost.
    Now days many companies are offering cloud storage space for individuals as well as companies as per their requirements. We all here Google and drop box. Many other such companies are also there. The following are some such companies you can think of using.
    1. iDrive: The best among the available is iDrive. This is good for small businesses as well as for individuals also. There is no restriction for you to use a single device. You can use multiple systems and network drives. There are many plans to select and the plans will start with a free space of 5GB. Many individuals are opting for this. But remember that there is no Linux support for this.
    2. Amazon Cloud Drive: This is also one of the best options for individuals and small business houses. If you are an Amazon Prime member, it will be very attractive to you and you will get 5GB of free space available for you. Over a period of time Amazon improved its performance and now it is one of the best options. But the costs are on a little higher side and the interface provided is also not the best.
    3. OneDrive: This is from Microsoft and is the best for Microsoft users. It will also start with 5GB of free space. This is good for windows users and works well with Microsoft 365 and is very good for file sharing. But prices are on the higher side and there is no Linux support.
    4. Drop Box: This is the oldest and simple but good at performance. The plans come with free space of 2 GB. This is very simple to use and can be used on all platforms. Anyhow, the money you have to spend may be a little more.
    5. Google Drive: We all will be hearing more about this. The plans will start with 15 GB of free space. It is very good for business and Chromebook users. Rates are very reasonable. But there is no end-to-end encryption facility and the interface may not be very easy for the users.
    There are many similar service providers but I feel one among the above-mentioned 5 will be very useful to you.
