Recommended Cloud Storage Services You Should Pick


There are many cloud storage services today, but what could benefit us more as a user? We do not only need a safety to our data, but also the service itself that really help us to access it. We sometimes hate to learn many geek, while we are being busy with our primary project or work.

So, today we have picked three services that not only stand as cloud services storage to save our data but as services that really put attention to user's need.

1. Dropbox
A cloud storage services that founded by MIT students, Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi in 2007.

what we like:
- It is available in 17 languages and can be operated on most OS and Gadget.
- The interface is simple and easy to learn. Once you try it, you can master it in less than a day.

what we think it can be improved:
For the free user, it only gives 2GB free space, although you can have additional space up to 15 GB by offering to your friend, we think it is uneasy as nowadays many people have used this services as well.
Dropbox is our first cloud storage services ever try. Back when we were in college, we were used to it as a storage to share our homework to our lectures.

Google drive or Backup and Sync is a file storage & synchronization services developed by Google launched on April 24, 2012.

what we like:
- It offers 15 gigabytes of free storage and can be enlarged up to 30 terabytes through optional plans.
- We can share, manage, and edit our file to other users through Google Doc, sheets, a slides

what we think it can be improved
- The interface is quite difficult to understand at first. There are so many products and services in it, we think, despite enriching the usefulness of the services, it can also make a little bit of confusing to average users that only need the basic features of cloud storage services.
We quite impress with what Google has done with the interface of this product lately. They really put efforts to make this services more simple and efficient, but  they can improve more by learning from their competitor related with the product interface as we still encounter difficulties to find our needs.

3. One Drive
One Drive, previously known as SkyDrive, windows live SkyDrive, and the windows live folder is a cloud storage service created by Microsoft. The Beta Services was expanded to the wider audience on August 1, 2007.  For the free user, it offers 5GB storage space.

what we like:
- We do not have to install it in the OS, as a native program in Windows OS, it is built to have good synergy with the OS.
- Because of coming from Microsoft,  it also has good connections with all other variants of the Microsoft products such as Microsoft Office and Office Online.

what we think it can be improved
- It is not used by many people, one of the reason is the lack of promotion and how Microsoft keep changing the name of the product more often than other competitors. Maybe in the future, they will change the name again, and that move will make many users confuse again.
we often use it on our PC or Laptop and rarely go to the website version. we think this product is good, but how Microsoft did to this product, make us wonder what future actions they will make to this product.
They both use a freemium business model, where users are offered a free account with a set storage size. So if you pay, you will get more capacity and additional features.
