In the Cloud: 4 Storage Options to Choose From
By Gilda Galang | February 19, 2013 5:22 PM EST
Backing up is important, whether it's your personal documents and photos or company data and files. This is the reason why cloud storage is becoming sought after commodities, whether as software or downloadable apps.
From your personal storage needs to even a potentially IT landscape-changing solution, here are some of the cloud storage apps that you should consider for your tablets or desktops.
Currently a hot cloud storage application, Box.net has new offers in store for its users, starting with a 50GB free cloud storage for its Android users.
And the storage space is not limited to just pictures or files-Gizbot reports that users can save anything in the 50GB free space. In addition, Box.net also offers the file-sharing feature, which you can make use of for both desktop and mobile platform.
At a low cost of $9.95 a month, you now have unlimited storage capacity with JustCloud, which makes it one of the most popular cloud storage services in the market, reports The Cloud Reviewer.
What makes JustCloud unique is its 100% compatibility claim to several platforms and operating systems, as it presents various options, from the use of iOS-based apps to using Android App, BlackBerry App, Windows Surface App, or the Kindle Fire App, which is just a part of their "Mobile App Mania" compatibility services.
Dropbox has been around for a long time, but this doesn't mean that it has lost the right to be an invaluable contender in the cloud services arena. The Times of India reports that, recently, Dropbox has undergone an upgrade, which can benefit most of its users.
For one thing, the new software used now allows IT administrators to track the viewing of file, so that permissions can be given to avoid the sharing of private files.
The Dropbox dashboard has also seen a major overhaul, in its continuing attempt at battling with Box.net for users as well as trying to improve its services for clients.
It's all about the IT with Egnyte, according to TechCrunch, which is the company's way of taking cloud storage in a new direction. Now it's all about connection from one cloud endpoint to the next, and ensuring that IT control and security is at its utmost.
"We've been about IT from day one, which means a technically superior product that answers the complicated IT needs from auditability to sub folder syncing/permissions to integration key standards," said Egnyte CEO Vineet Jain to TechCrunch.
