Seen the seen in recent years, I think I can say without fear of being wrong that the storage in the cloud is the future . The space of hard disks and internal memory chips of computers and smartphones, still growing over time, remains limited. Not to mention that it’s no use having 256 GB of memory in a mobile phone to not be able to recover anything if it breaks. So, it seems that the best solution to keep files safe is cloud storage, But what is the best service? Put to pay, better pay well.
Services in the cloud are kicked, 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.
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. Dropbox or MEGA allow the monthly payment, so we had to multiply that cost by 12. The prices are the ones below and, as you can see, if we stick only to the price, The best option is either Amazon Cloud Drive or Microsoft OneDrive .
|First name||Dropbox||Google Drive||MEGA||Amazon Cloud Drive||Microsoft OneDrive|
|Price per 1 TB / year||€ 198.96||€ 119.88||€ 119.88||€ 99.99||€ 99.99|
Why choose? It is a question that is easily answered. The Amazon cloud is pure and hard storage, and that’s it. It offers nothing more than 1 TB of memory to save files. OneDrive goes beyond . By 99.99 euros You can access 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 entire family can have the Microsoft office functionally complete, in addition to 1 TB of memory.
If you do not want five accounts, for 69 euros per year you have the same options but for a PC or Mac, a smartphone and a tablet.
In addition, OneDrive has the advantage that is perfectly integrated in Windows 10 , which is the most popular desktop operating system in the world with 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 bit further than simple storage, OneDrive is what you need.
Important : Remember that trusting only the cloud to save your files is an error. Here we explain why .
