Amazon and Google Lower Fees for Cloud Storage

Back in January I reviewed My Cloud, a private cloud storage option with a 3 TB capacity. This works great for our family—but it may not be the best option for a business or church. Sometimes, the convenience of allowing a public service to maintain, back-up, and secure your data in the cloud is the better alternative.

And thankfully, now a few months later, both Amazon and Google have dramatically lowered their monthly storage fees. Just thought I’d share in case anyone is interested, click-through for more information:

Amazon Glacier Pricing

$0.01 per gigabyte of storage per month. (Around $10.00 a month for 1 TB.)

    Drive has gotten a lot better too. The original UI was kind of a mess. Not seeing the benefit of Dropbox anymore. The price for Drive is great too.

    Just started using Amazon S3 last week. Bit of a pain to set up, but I qualified for their 1-yr Free Tier and it looks dirt cheap after that.

    Alot of the site I build use plugins that offer hooking into Amazon S3. I prefer that route rather than dumping everything into my 100GB Dropbox plan (which is almost 50% full now).

    Should probably point out about Glacier. It’s pretty cool, but it’s definitely designed for long-term ‘archival’ purposes. Again, dirt cheap, but if you need to pull stuff out you get hit with some minor access charges.

    With the escalating storage of data, people are looking for reliable backup option. So, i think cloud storage is best and potent backup service. Choose best cloud storage service and secure your data.
