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.

How do you backup your data in the cloud when it's already online?

That's Backupify's raison d'etre--it offers full backup-and-restore for popular online systems, with a particular focus on Google Apps. The company offers social media backups, too--Facebook, Twitter, and other popular sites are included--though that's geared more for individual accounts. The Google Apps piece should hold the strongest appeal for SMBs and other corporate users that want to keep a copy of their data outside the Google ecosystem. (Assuming, of course, they use Google Apps.) Pricing starts at $3 per user, per month, for 25 GB, though the company offers other plans for larger data needs. Backupify has expanded its business-oriented tools of late. Most recently, it launched Salesforce Snapshot, a tool for performing a one-time backup and download of an entire Salesforce CRM account.

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.

Google in the Enterprise Survey
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.
