Google Drive: 10 Alternatives To See

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.

Google Drive: 10 Alternatives To See
I agree with Oogwave (http://oogwave.com/)! After a lot of checking, I decided to use this tool and it's been six months using this tool. User friendly and easy to learn. A secure platform where we can store and share files.

There's no doubt Google has made headway into businesses: Just 28 percent discourage or ban use of its productivity ­products, and 69 percent cite Google Apps' good or excellent ­mobility. But progress could still stall: 59 percent of nonusers ­distrust the security of Google's cloud. Its data privacy is an open question, and 37 percent worry about integration.
