As the big providers continue to lower costs of their cloud storage services, it begs the question how cheap can cloud computing get, and will there ever be a point where our remote storage is actually free? Many industry experts believe that at the current rate of development, cloud computing power will eventually become free for most, or so cheap that its price will be absorbed by big providers. Earlier this this year Google significantly dropped the prices of its Google Drive online storage service.
Microsoft soon reacted to the Google price dropped and matched their costs accordingly for the OneDrive, albeit with fewer options.
Apple are noticeably a little tighter with only 5GB of free storage before the first 79p monthly upgrade takes place. Throwing cloud storage in as part of a bigger subscription package is a useful carrot the big providers have begun to offer. In terms of generosity, Microsoft have been particularly lavish with their allotment of cloud storage. Google have been particularly generous to those in full-time education, the company has offered students a whopping 5TB of storage on the new Drive for Education for completely free. Google recently upped the ante with another round of price cuts for their Compute Engine cloud service which will now cost 10% less across the board. Google, Microsoft and Apple have entered into a war of attrition in the consumer cloud market trading the cheapest storage options. Competition is naturally the first factor in this, the companies want you housing your data on their systems as frankly you’re paying them and you’ll be more inclined to pay for their other projects and programmes afterwards.
The evolution of technology hardware, specifically storage capacity, has meant that the cost of housing data has simply become cheaper. Well, the question is difficult to predict as we already have a number of ‘free’ storage options, however as with Microsoft, the OneDrive storage cost is probably absorbed in your subscription to Office 365, so it’s not free as a standalone product. As for Google, Dropbox and Apple’s free 15 (or 5) GB of storage, the capacity is ok for a few files but no good for backing up whole music collection or movie stash. Although the price of online storage is continually falling, there will always some sort of cost to host data. Moore’s law suggests that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit will double approximately every two years. We’ve seen this become particularly prevalent in the Hard Drive market and it likely cloud or NAS will follow. In the next few years when a 1TB of cloud storage is as scoffed at as 1GB, companies may have a different mindset. I am a low user in printing but I’m after a wifi printer, taking into account the price of the printer and ink refills what would be the best printer for me to get. Seems a little odd that you include the Mega.nz logo at the top of the article, yet don’t even mention them? I was just about to post the same as Ben – MEGA give 50Gb free, easily beating Google, MS and DropBox. En nuestro PC crearemos una carpeta con los ficheros que deseamos compartir remotamente, con DropBox realizaremos una copia a traves de Internet y se ocupara de mantener en tiempo real la informacion, que cada vez alojemos en dicha carpeta. Nuestros ficheros estaran disponibles en el Cloud tanto para nosotros como para los usuarios que demos autorizacion, de alguna manera tendremos un disco duro en el Cloud para ser usado desde cualquier punto remoto. Las aplicaciones mas comunes que tiene este disco en el Cloud, es alojar fotografias para compartir, videos, libros, musica, ficheros. Actualmente el servicio Cloud DropBox tiene una capacidad de alojamiento de 10 Gbs para nuestro uso totalmente gratis.


Este nuevo servicio se denomina Glacier y su principal caracteristica es precisamente su bajo precio, dado que cuesta un centimo de dolar o de libra el Gb.
En concreto, este servicio puede ser utilizado para los archivos pesados que la pyme no emplea frecuentemente, pero que ocupan un importante espacio en discos duros o en los archivadores de documentos. Otra de sus ventajas, aparte de su precio bajo, es que no se exige compromiso de permanencia a diferencia de otros servicios cloud para empresas en las que se establece esa condicion. No obstante, el servicio todavia presenta algunos inconvenientes como el hecho de que la recuperacion de datos sea lenta, por lo que tienen que ser documentos o informacion que no se consulte habitualmente. A pesar de este inconveniente, este nuevo servicio cloud sigue siendo interesante para las pymes por su bajo coste, aunque tiene que ser para documentos que no se usen con frecuencia. According to a Goldman Sachs report, cloud infrastructure and platform spending could reach $43 billion by 2018, which is up $16 billion from last year, representing a growth of around 30% from 2013 said the analyst. This phenomenal growth is laying the foundation for a new breed of startup entrepreneur, which is clearly reaping the benefits of cloud computing.
Cloud computing in many ways allows startups to compete with bigger more established companies, it gives them a level playing field in terms of IT infrastructure and gets them up and running in a fraction of the time that it would take a traditional brick and mortar business. Another clear advantage of cloud computing is mobility, employing talent from around the globe, these employees can work from home using their own devices, there is no need to spend six figures on  expensive IT equipment including servers, front end equipment as well as licenses, again representing huge savings on startup costs which can also seem attractive to potential investors.
With the big leaders in the cloud computing industry like Amazon Web Services andMicrosoft Azure offering attractive solutions, startups now no longer need to spend capital on a centralised IT department or the range of IT staff that this normally entails. In Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure they cite AWS as the dominant industry heavyweight with Microsoft’s Azure a clear second. However industry experts are warning startups to tread carefully and consider their options, as cloud computing also has its downsides. Outages can happen and big companies like Google are not immune, as we seen recently when their Gmail service went down, denying access to as many as 5% all internet users. Microsoft’s Azure has also been prone to these outages, something which customers are increasingly expressing concern about. Also Service Level Agreements (SLA’s), need to be scrutinised as the vast majority don’t offer any real substance or guarantee. Looking towards the future, many startups that become stable and profitable tend to move away from third party cloud computing options and begin to develop their own in house solutions as well as offering these solutions to other companies to increase profits and business further.
About UsData Center Talk is one of the most prominent websites today providing online news and articles exclusively to our members and public viewers. Customers using Cloud Video are able to view live and recorded video from any location using a standard web browser or mobile device. Cloud Video works with any number of IP or analog cameras, which allows it to meet the needs of commercial businesses, as well as mid-size and small business owners.
With no PCs to manage or software to install, Cloud Video allows users to get up and running quickly with minimal disruption to their daily business. TycoIS understands that some businesses need the flexibility of both on-premise and cloud storage, however, so customers can also purchase a CVMS appliance for local storage and video management.
Cloud Video helps businesses manage video surveillance for multiple geographically distributed locations from any Internet-enabled computer or mobile device. US – TycoIS, a business unit of leading security systems integrator Tyco International, has announced the availability of Cloud Video, a low total cost of ownership cloud-based video solution provided by Eagle Eye. Even Apple dropped the cost of their iCloud service in a bid to keep up with the other big providers and coincide with the new iPhone 6 launch.
If you’re an Office 365 Home, Personal or University user you get a tidy 1TB of space with your annual subscription.


It’s not just Google bringing costs down in this sector, Oracle (another cloud service provider) announced it would lower its database costs in bid to catch up with Amazon’s pricing structure. For the moment Google appear to be in the driving seat in terms of cost however Microsoft’s generous Office 365 OneDrive package is pretty alluring and Apple user’s reliance on a now, much cheaper iCloud is another close rival.
Most users, if they we’re to go fully online, would need to be pushing the 500GB mark minimum for storing real media. The hardware alone means there will be a running cost, it’s whether companies can accept taking a hit to absorb the costs to offer their service out for free, to draw customers in for other services.
This will drive down the cost and size of traditional circuits, allowing for improvements in various media, like storage. My advice, for what it is worth, I have used an HP wi-fi printer and had a lot of problems with it, always refusing to connect to my Wi-fi.
Una de sus grandes ventajas es la compatibilidad con los sistemas operativos Windows, Mac, Linux.
Ahora, se suma Amazon, que ha lanzado un nuevo servicio cloud que se caracteriza por ser ‘low cost’.
Un precio por el que este servicio permite, sobre todo, a las pequenas y medianas empresas, que son su segmento objetivo, almacenar las copias de seguridad y archivos a los que no acceden de forma constante. De esta manera, por ejemplo, el servicio es util para informes de anos anteriores, listados, direcciones, backups…, entre otros, que pueden almacenarse en Glacier, dado que este servicio ha sido disenado para almacenar datos en modulos de hasta 40 Tb, disponiendo cada empresa de los modulos que precise o desee.
Y es que para acceder a los documentos que se guarden en Glacier es necesario dar un preaviso de entre tres y cinco horas. In closing there is a vast number of advantages for startups who want to trim costs and jump on board  this booming billion dollar cloud computing industry, however consider all of your options thoroughly before taking that giant leap.
Since 2005, The one an only world leading DCT forum rapidly gained popularity as a quality resource site for connecting valuable vendors and member services to our Data Center community.
