Types of Cloud Storage

On the consumer side, there are a few cloud storage systems to pick from, and some of them are quite comparable. While standard in their online storage capabilities, a few public cloud storage services extend their features with helpful online tools, and the choice to grow capacity well over the 1TB level. Here are the most in-demand services today:

  • DropBox
  • Google drive
  • Amazon Cloud Drive
  • One Drive
  • Box

If you are more interested in private cloud storage, commonly referred to as Enterprise cloud services, here are a few of the more popular options to consider:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Google Cloud Platform
  • IBM Cloud Storage
  • Microsoft Azure Storage
  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Many of the Enterprise cloud platforms above offer similar services. From an easily accessible data center to intuitive file sharing and automatic backup and recovery, the list of standard features offered by these various firms is extensive.

In choosing a cloud-based data storage solution, the difference may come in the form of quality, pricing, features, and options. Comparing the services will require a deep understanding of your organization’s needs, as well as which service will provide the best match.
