Dropbox utilises a client-server based model, with code written in Python and supports change only updates. Amazon Cloud Drive offers much of the functionality of Dropbox, including clients for iOS, Android and Windows. Apple iCloud is Apple’s answer to the very tightly integrated cloud services Google has offered Android users, for some time. Box focuses primarily on sharing large files or groups of files between two people and as such, has become popular with businesses and other organisations who regularly need to share documents too large for email, easily.
MediaFire attracts the users with their 50GB of free storage that you get, which is more than most.
Google Drive, on Google based devices such as Android or Chromebook, is probably the tightest integrated service of them all. Google Drive (or GDrive) also allows users to edit documents of varying types, natively, within the web interface and allows sharing with non GDrive users.
Mega was born out of Kim Dot Com’s MegaUpload service, which grew to immense popularity a few years back, as it allowed users to share any kinds of files and was promptly turned into a haven for piracy.
Unlike virtually all other services on this page, Mega is effectively just a web based file sharing and storing site and is very limited in functionality.


Ubuntu One, despite its name is available to users of other operating systems other than Linux and it offers 5GB of free space.
After snagging almost 5 million in funding, last month, ownCloud is gaining popularity rapidly.
About the AuthorRodneyI'm a veteran of way too many years of IT (although I still love it) and I currently head up the techincal work over at Host One (major sponsor of this site), where I'm also a partner. Being one of the earlier providers, Dropbox benefits from name recognition, a large user base and a simple and efficient user interface. As with Dropbox, the client allows changed files to be synchronised to a centralised server and offers up to 5GB for free.
Box offers good version control of documents but has also aggressively marketed itself to 3rd party apps, such as SugarCRM, gaining integration with other applications and platforms. Many Android users are pleasantly surprised to find that when they upgrade to a new phone or device, all their documents, contacts, settings, applications and even wifi passwords (among, many other things) automatically transfer to their new device – and this is in large part due to the very strong cloud services Google offers. After being shut down by American authorities, with a warranty issued for Kim Dot Com’s arrest, Mega eventually managed to find a home in New Zealand. It remains popular, however, as all files are encrypted in non-reversible encryption to which Mega does not maintain the keys, meaning users’ data remains (relatively) secure.


OneDrive is completely integrated with Windows 8 devices, offering Google like device content sharing – right down to wifi passwords and even user desktop backgrounds. This individuals or organisations users to effectively offer as much capacity as they can afford to, on their own infrastructure.
Configuration is incredible easy and will run on shared hosting environments, making it very simple to set up.
Offering both free and paid services with a variety of plans, Dropbox has a large and loyal following, which in turn allows their marketshare to grow. Unlike Dropbox, Amazon Cloud Drive is integrated with other Amazon products, such as Amazon Cloud Player, allowing users to store their Amazon purchased music in their drive. Administrators can control user access controls and quotas via a web interface and it scales very efficiently. None the less, the integration with recent iOS and OSX operating systems has improved and the product is making headway.
