Free Cloud Storage
Free cloud storage is a service offered by cloud computing companies that allows you to store
your files online. That being said, online file storing has been implicated for years, but free cloud
storage is the future of online file storage. Free cloud storage is the most versatile form of online
file storage including services such as automatic file backup, auto sync, and advanced file
sharing and collaboration with cross platform compatibility from your desktop to your laptop to
your mobile device. The new wave of many of these online services (free cloud storage included)
is “freemium” service. What “freemium” means is that a company will offer basic services for
free and with updated services for a monthly premium. Cloud storage free sites are all over, but
some of them you might have to make some sacrifices.
With free cloud storage, a small amount of storage is available for free (we will further discuss
this later) while upgraded amounts of storage are
offered for a small price. Most cloud computing
companies will also offer upgraded storage space
for every person you refer to their services. Some of
these companies will put a cap on referrals while
others do not. For instance, Dropbox offers 2 GB of
storage free, but referring up to 32 friends to their
website can grant you up to 8 additional GB of
storage, 10 GB in total. On the other hand,
JustCloud offers unlimited cloud storage if you
refer just two friends. The catch with JustCloud is that you must refer two friends before you
gain any storage. Sugarsync offers 5 GB free and has no limit as to how much upgraded storage
space you can gain by referrals. If you are looking for the best free cloud storage you have come
to the right place, we have some suggestions to point you in the rigt direction.
As it stands, we are at the beginning of a new era. Mobile computing is the future of computers
with one study even predicting that the amount of mobile computers will very soon surpass the
amount of laptops being used by the general public. There are obvious tremendous motivational
factors towards buying a mobile computer when you can easily check your email while standing
in line at the bank, or check the status of a package you ordered from Amazon getting your hair
done. It is imperative that whatever free cloud storage provider you choose offers file sharing
and collaborating with your mobile devices and tablet computers as well.
When buying a product or enlisting a company’s services, many people find the middle road to
be the most efficient road, myself included. The middle road general offers you quality without
the big expenses. MegaCloud offers 8 GB of storage for free and up to an additional 8 GB for
referrals. MegaCloud also offers exceptional services for cross platform file sharing and
collaboration and is also one of the most user-friendly, perfect for those who aren’t very tech
