Don't you just love science and technology - Look what we can do now for FREE !
Free cloud storage. A nice idea if you have fast upload speeds but is it worth having ?
It can be, if you have a large enough cloud storage space and a real need, such as only having a 64 gigabyte SSD that came with your Surface
Today there are tons of companies offering small storage options from 2 to 10 gigs. I say forget these. I have found what I believe to be the best
options for free cloud storage from 100 gigabytes up to a 1TB to a Whooping 10 TB's ! ( yes.. that reads Ten Terabytes )
Use at your own risk and never use cloud storage for critical data.
Lets start with the best option if you are in the USA.
SurDoc, based in California offers 100 Gigabytes of free cloud storage for 1 year. They charge only 30 dollars after the free year ends to continue
the service. That's a Really good deal. Here is a C-net article on the offer and a link to the site itself.
SurDoc - www.surdoc.com...
These next options can be used if you are in the USA but the servers are not local to the USA so you will have to make sure your internet upload is
really fast. (or you have lots of time)
China's, tech giants Baidu andQihoo 360 are currently offering 1TB of free space.
Here's the article for more info and links to the sites.
These may not have English translations.. you may have to use something like Google Translate.
(these links do work even though they are not in English)
Lastly, again from China, TenCent the worlds 3rd largest internet company ...
Yep.. you heard right - Worlds 3rd largest Internet Company - so even though they are not popular in the USA, this company is huge and very
reputable. Here's the Wikipedia info on the company: en.wikipedia.org...
TenCent is offering to start you off with a full free 1 TB of cloud storage space - but they don't stop there ! They are offering to add TB's of space
with your continued use - up to a staggering 10 TB's of free cloud storage!
Hey.. if Sprint offered 1TB to 10 TB's of free cloud storage, you'd take it wouldn't you ? - This offer is no joke though you may have to jump through
a few hoops to sign up. The company is rock solid with a huge world wide customer base and it's users so far seem very happy with the free cloud
storage - I cannot find any negative dirt on the web about them.
Here is the article - China's Tencent Is Giving Away 10TB Of Free Cloud Storage
and TenCent website - www.weiyun.com...
Cloud storage is not the best solution for Any data. In this age of NSA spying and companies milking all the content for profit, you never know how
safe your data is or who is using that data to do god only knows what. It's good however to know there are better options out there if one needs
Enjoy the info & best wishes. ( This post is for informational purposes to help out the ATS community. I gain nothing by posting about these offers
