These days, when so many of us are working from home, having reliable cloud storage is more important than ever.
It all started in 2007, when Drew Houston, Dropbox’s CEO, got sick and tired of losing his USB drive. So, he created the first personal and small business cloud storage service. It was a radical idea in its time, and everyone loved it. Today, there are dozens of cheap or free cloud storage services. But — beyond giving you storage — they’re very different.
How do you choose which one is right for you? You could just pick by how much free storage space you get. That’s simple, but it’s only part of the story. The real value from a cloud storage service comes from how well it works for you or your business. As you’ll see, some work much better with some operating systems and business plans than others.
