Cloud Storage Services Compared

"With Amazon's recent entry into consumer cloud storage, we've got quite a few competitors offering great and varying options-but which one is the best? Here's a look at Windows Live SkyDrive, Dropbox, and Amazon Cloud Drive, and our top pick for storing you files in the cloud."

VS. VS.

The field of cloud storage services is getting more competitive everyday. A few of the more well known names are Microsoft's Live SkyDrive, Dropbox and the recently released Amazon Cloud Drive. Lifehacker has posted a comparison between the three services in order to help you decide which service suits you best.

SkyDrive gives you 25GB of space for free, the feature set is fairly sparse, files are limited to 50MB and there is no pathway for expansion. Dropbox gives you an initial 2GB for free with 250MB extra for each person you signup. Additional storage is available but at a fairly steep price. Dropbox also has the advantage of having client software available on the most mobile platforms. Amazon Cloud Drive users are given 5GB with an 20GB available if you buy a music album from the Amazon MP3 store. Additional storage is relatively cheap but there is no client for iOS devices.

Each service have their own advantages and draw backs. Ultimately, there is no definitive answer as to which service is best as it is really up to what your own individual needs are.

"Amazon has just pushed out its very own music streaming service, which is conveniently dubbed the Amazon Cloud Player."

Every digital home needs music that streams from the cloud. Luckily for you, Amazon has just introduced Cloud Player for web and Android. Cloud player utilizes Amazon's Cloud Drive online storage to stream your uploaded music or those purchased from the Amazon MP3 store from the cloud to any connected computer or Android device. Users are given 5GB for free with the possibility of up to 20GB based on album purchases. Additional paid plans are also available for those with big music libraries.
