Best cloud storage options of 2019 by DFH Technologies

Did you feel like the cloud storage price increases in 2018 left you scratching your head? If so, you’re not alone. In April 2018, Dropbox added 100GB of new unlimited storage for both personal and business users, giving them space to store more of their files than ever before. If you were lucky enough to be a Dropbox Premier subscriber and already had 75GB of storage, the new 100GB will cost you $9.99 per month. But that’s not the only storage on the market – from unlimited storage to the best value, here are the best cloud storage options of 2019.

  1. Google Drive

    If you use Gmail, Google Drive is the option you should take. It’s affordable, fast, and gives you unlimited storage. Google Drive also offers millions of free apps to access from your mobile devices, so you can use it with your own email address. It’s free for up to 15GB of storage – you can easily upgrade your storage using one of those free apps. And should you want more, there are a lot of free resources online, with detailed step-by-step guides on how to set up the accounts, use the apps, and keep your data protected.
  2. Dropbox

    We know the big storage offerings look appealing to people with lots of files, but the good news is that these two services aren’t the only ones to look into – there are several others out there that are pretty great. Dropbox gives you 5GB of free storage, which is all you need to store an email attachment, a Word file, or any photo, and Dropbox seamlessly uploads to your cloud storage account when you sync. You can choose to pay anywhere from $1 per month to $120 per year. Storage is unlimited, but you will pay for individual uploads.
  3. Amazon Cloud Drive

    Amazon Cloud Drive is the ideal choice for anyone who is trying to keep all of their files in one place, whether that means saving PDF files or video clips. Of course, if you don’t have an Amazon Echo, then it’s not practical to have a cloud storage account. If you do, however, you can get a personal or business plan with up to 2TB of storage.
  4. Microsoft OneDrive

    If you are a Microsoft OneDrive user, then it’s a good idea to check out the new Simple Storage Plan for students. It offers a great deal of storage for the price, even if it comes with a monthly fee.
  5. iCloud

    Apple has made a name for itself with its feature-packed mobile products, and its iCloud service is no exception. If you’re using iCloud for file transfers on your iOS devices, you can increase the size of these files so that your music or photo storage is never more than 256MB. This feature, and everything else you need to do with iCloud, can be completely free. You only pay to keep the photos and music that you want to share with people. You may have to pick between only storing them online, or storing them in your local hard drive – but both can be really cheap.
