Google Drive: 10 Alternatives To See
April 27, 2012 11:20 AM Dropbox, Box, iCloud, and now, Google Drive, have the most familiar names. But many alternative services satisfy a variety of storage, backup, and file-sharing needs.
This platform goes up directly against the likes of Dropbox, iCloud, and others that have a strong presence in the consumer market. SugarSync offers 5 GB of free storage for backup, file-sharing, and automatic syncing across devices. That could make it a popular pick for individuals provisioning their own tools, particularly inside resource-constrained SMBs. (Though 5 GB appears to be the new 2 GB when it comes to free plans.) Those with heavier data needs can get 60 GB of space for about $100 a year. SugarSync's business offering starts at 100 GB for three users for just under $300 a year, though it will customize pricing and plans for larger organizations. As the name suggests, SugarSync's feature set places a heavy emphasis on sharing and syncing files across multiple users, devices, and operating systems.
