While there are several different types of online storage styles and websites which offer various storage packages over the years a new revolutionary type of storage has emerged upon the internet file storage scene with a new kind of storage known as cloud storage. There are several different companies which claim that their version of cloud storage is the best. This alone can be enough to confuse anyone who is deciding on what the best offer is, especially if they are new to the whole idea of cloud storage technology. The following are three different kinds of cloud storage technology.
Like any other storage company that has anything to do with cloud storage technology, Google Drive offers the service of file storage as well as the ability to sync those files to any other type of mobile device such as a PDA or cell phone. Although this service is geared towards storing document files rather than media files as well, there is a one gigabyte limit to the file size allowed to upload. This service is a free service which has been around for a few months but has already gained in popularity and is perfect for anyone.
The basic concept of the technology behind the dropbox company is the same as any other company with a single exception to the rule. This exception consists of taking the basis of uploading and storing files and allowing them to be seen on any type of device. This is ideal if something happens to a laptop or any other type of device, all files are still accessible. This particular type of cloud storage system is available on all the well known and used platforms as well as in several different languages. Dropbox offers free as well as paid plans.
Controlled through Microsoft, Skydrive is another cloud storage company that allows users to upload as well as sync files to several different clients and platforms. There is a limited free service that is offered set at seven gigabytes with additional space available at different costs, depending on the required space. It is available for use with the Windows and OSX platforms and file size uploads are limited to 300 megabytes when dropping and dragging files to the web browser and has a two gigabyte limit when using the desktop client. Users can also upload using hotmail and share files.
In conclusion, as it can be seen in the previously stated, the three main cloud storage clients allow users to do a variety of different things with the files they upload on to these types of servers. While there is a different file size limit according to the company specifications, the concept of uploading files to a cloud in order to be accessible to any type of mobile and stand alone device is the main idea. These three previously described companies are not the only ones that provide this type of service. Each company usually offers free and premium accounts.
