GoogleDrive Perceives Major Price Plunge
Microsoft’s SkyDrive is officially called now –OneDrive! Though there are ample no of debates milling around net about data security and safety, I see cloud business becoming more stronger than ever. On technical front, I am an avid follower of this concept, and will drive IT enabled services on countless roots on coming years.
If you are familiar with Google Drive, DropBox or Apple’s iCloud, OneDrive offers pretty similar service and just from Microsoft family. It does bids range of apps to sync data right from your Desktop, Phone and tablet where it’s compatible with most famous OS like MS, iOS and Android driven devices. But you know, Google Drive Still offers 15GB free space where OneDrive comes only with 7GB free!. For Android devices, it deals extra 3GB free space, If you turn it on your camera upload feature to auto mode.
On new feature side, OneDrive louds real-time data collaboration, More free storage and also Better video streaming experience than the predecessor version. Like other cloud services, using One Drive you can easily manage your documents and files and also you can browse, share and email when needed. Just all under one roof. Interestingly, OneDrive offers a large thumbnails for pleasant photo view experience and also auto upload feature for easy photos and videos sync.
The real-time data collaboration appears quite cool when compare it’s previous version. Like, If the document gets modified by multiple people, now both ends can see the edits concurrently which was not available before. Also, While you playback videos, OneDrive detects your internet speed and allows to watch even with slow connections. This feature sounds great to me and it seems they encode data for high/low quality data bandwidth according to your net connection. Since newly added feature in MS cloud, Need to verify how it performs at real-time!
Before ending…Last month, Google Drive has slashed its monthly subscription fee for 100GB tier to $1.99 from $4.99 and also 1TB price amazingly slashed to $9.99 from whooping $49 for us market!. Hmmm…That’s really a huge shift! Google has announced this new price as soon as OneDrive has dropped its price for their new promotion. However, The price slash on both ends precisely confirms, how the market is challenging for major leads now. Rush!. No doubt that, Google already got outshined in cloud segment and I presume more niche concept sooner on Google’s cloud wallet to hold its customers very taut. Just stay tuned and watch for more updates.
Over to you. How do you feel about cloud storage service? Are they safe enough considering data security? Are you using cloud service for your business? Just share your thoughts.
