With the launch of Google Drive and SkyDrive paid plans Cloud storage market is now crowded with too many players offering their services. For some pricing may not be a priority for example for businesses, they want features like security and reliability. While I would prefer SkyDrive and Dropbox as I am using them currently, you can decide yourself what best suits your needs. Do you use any of these cloud storage services, if so what is your favorite and what would you recommend to others.? At the same time, Dropbox released an updated iOS client with new sharing capabilities and Google upped Google Docs storage to 5 GB. Competition in the increasingly crowded cloud storage space is heating up as Microsoft joined the fray, revelaing paid storage plans for its revamped SkyDrive service yesterday. Dropbox responded by adding new features to its desktop and mobile clients that make it easy to share the files and folders in your Dropbox via direct links viewable by anyone with a browser, no Dropbox account required.
Rivalry is about to get even more serious as the search giant Google is rumored to enter the market with a cloud storage solution similar to Dropbox, dubbed Google Drive.

Their new iPad app, depicted above, offers more advanced features than Dropbox, or so they say, including access to any folder from your computer via your iPad, per-folder syncing for offline access, the ability to create and edit text files within the app and more. SugarSync also touts other advanced capabilities over competing cloud storage solutions and it is definitely available across the widest range of mobile platforms out there.
Hopefully, this article should help you compare popular cloud storage solutions before you commit to a monthly subscription plan. Christian, in the narrative you mentioned that a free Dropbox account comes with five gigabytes of storage but it’s actually two (like the price matrix reflects).
I have been using SkyDrive and seeing the service improve, including having the iPhone App.

You are seeing the number for SkyDrive, but it is not your fault, the chart is not well formatted. Actually, it’s very easy to get more than 2gb of free space in dropbox by referrals and other methods that take minimal time. He has written many sportscar buying guides, a few mountaineering guides and drives a car that's faster than he is. Storage 2016 A period of quiet, rest and reflection is what the storage industry needs after a frankly hectic and very eventful 2015.It won't get it. Public cloudAmazon, Azure and Google will grow, with Azure making more progress in enterprises as it transitions its on-premises customers to becoming Azure acolytes.The race to the bottom in cloud storage pricing will continue and we might see any one of the big three buying in-cloud data protection, tiering and cloud storage gateway software to gain more enterprise traction.

Nello scenario dipinto da Eurostat l’Italia si posiziona ampiamente al di sopra della media europe, che si ferma al 19% nell’uso del cloud computing. Il problema di sicurezza del servizio e stato individuato come il principale fattore che limita la diffusione del cloud computing nell’Unione Europea. Per l’81% delle imprese che non si servono di nuvole informatiche, la scarsa conoscenza di questi sistemi e la causa principale del loro inutilizzo a livello europeo (42%). As a user you have now more than handful of services to choose for your online storage needs. All these services offer free storage to users and if you want more storage for your needs you can always buy using their paid plans. For users pricing also plays an important factor along with other features in determining the cloud storage for their needs.
Google Drive is any way is integrated well with Google Docs and Gmail, and 5GB is good enough for average user. They were the first to get cross-platform file sharing right so it should come as no surprise that Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs wanted to acquire the company for a cool $800 million.
Additional room for your files in the Dropbox cloud can be purchased in tiers of fifty and hundred gigabytes for $25 or $50 a year. It includes 1TB of shared cloud storage, centralized administration and billing and other perks. After experience working for DEC, Unisys and SCO, he became an IT journalist writing for a variety of print publications. The opposing forces of simplicity and complexity, access speed versus capacity, server versus array, on premises versus cloud, and tuned hardware and software versus software-defined are still in deep conflict. Meanwhile, developers want free software and API access to everything."Gimme a break, I can't do everything," says the storage professional.
There must surely be attraction for them in adding data services to their basic storing-the-bits functionality.SoftwareThere will be a continuation of storage SW trends in 2016 with SW-only SANs progressing, meaning DataCore and Falconstor, SW scale-out file systems, and SW-only HCIAs. La penisola figura come il secondo paese europeo con la percentuale piu elevata di imprese che utilizzano cloud (40%), dietro alla sola Finlandia (51%).

Secondo quanto emerso dal sondaggio, il 39% delle imprese ritiene che dietro al ristretto uso di nuvole informatiche vi sia il rischio di violazione della sicurezza.
Il secondo fattore di blocco alla diffusione del cloud computing e il rischio di una breccia nel sistema di sicurezza (37%). Per questo bisogna articolare tutte le forme della prassi democratica e rilanciare l’idea di un “demos europeo”. He edited the UK's first storage print magazine and then moved into the online world writing for IDG's Techworld, then started up the Blocks & Files blog, which was bought by El Reg. Il bel paese stacca nettamente Germania (11%), Francia ed Austria (entrambe al 12%), Regno Unito (24%) ed Irlanda (28%).
Entrambi figurano come fattori che ostacolano le nuvole informatiche in tutti i settori economici, ad eccezione di quello delle comunicazioni ed informazioni, e delle attivita tecniche e scientifiche.
La maggioranza delle aziende che utilizzano la nuvola informatica operano nel settore della comunicazione (45%), seguito da quello relativo alle attivita scientifiche, professionali e tecniche (27%), mentre per gli altri ambiti economici le percentuali variavano dal 14% al 20%. In fondo alla classifica Ue, tra i paesi in cui servizi di cloud computing sono utilizzati da meno del 10% delle imprese, si trovano Romania (5%), Lettonia e Polonia (entrambe al 6%), Bulgaria, Grecia e Ungheria (tutte ferme all’8%).
More of what you're doing already, only better." So, what can we expect to see as 2016 progresses?Technology visionThe tensions between storage simplification and complexity will continue to drive opposing forces of product development, with complexity delivering better tuned hardware and software functionality, while simplicity eases use and management and lowers those costs.
Actually, DataCore could have a break-out year if its parallel IO technology leads to significant performance gains. Inoltre, la soluzione cloud e scelta dalle aziende prevalentemente per i servizi di posta elettronica (66%), e per l’archiviazione di file (53%). In linea con l’Ue, le aziende italiane impiegano le nuvole informatiche prevalentemente per le email (86%). Management abstraction layers can hide complexity but, for the most granular control, you typically need to touch the levers yourself.We should see growing numbers of appliance style, scale-out, HCIA-type systems that answer simplicity’s call.
A seguire, software per l’ufficio (41%), applicazioni software finanziarie o contabili (33%), archiviazione di files (32%), ospitare uno o piu database (28%) ed applicazioni software di gestione delle relazioni con i clienti (14%).
The aggressive pricing strategy adopted by Microsoft and Google has put lot of pressure on Dropbox to lower prices and offer smaller plans. No data scientist is going to come running down the IT street clutching an industry standard nugget of digital gold, so sparking a gold rush. We’ll see some disillusionment with Big Data systems, I think.The industry will continue its search for a way to deliver hyperscale IT deployment efficiencies and power to customers without actual hyperscale needs and budgets. Software will integrate the two and active archiving will grow.Secondary storage silo consolidation efforts will grow as customers tentatively explore the idea of replacing secondary storage silo sprawl with physical or virtual single secondary storage repositories. Actifio, Catalogic, Cohesity, Delphix and Rubrik will lead the way, with Primary Data aiming for a single virtual primary and secondary data silo abstraction layer.In-array analytics will grow to provide better array capacity and component fault management.
