Although there are other services that allow us to store more data, we must bear in mind that the “Business” version allows us to configure in detail both the storage space and the transfer that we are going to carry out. In this case, we can configure a plan of up to 10PB of storage and with the same transfer number. This is undoubtedly for large companies that need to store a lot of data, not for a home user or advanced user who needs a lot of storage space.
As you can see, the monthly price is really high, but we must take into account the huge amount of storage available making it perfect Azure databox gateway alternative.
This service is quite popular among advanced users and system administrators as well, because it works really well. In the personal plan for backup copies we will have to pay 70 dollars per year, and in principle we would not have any storage space limit, but we can only use it from a computer and it is for backup copies with synchronization in the cloud.
He also has other plans that you can see below:
- Plan for companies: if you are going to store data from servers, NAS or from Veeam, the price is 5 dollars per month for each 1 TB of data that we want to contract. The first 10GB are completely free for the purpose of testing the service.
- Cloud storage: in this case the price is 5 dollars for every 1TB of storage and 0.01 dollar for every 1GB that we have to download. This plan is similar to Amazon S3, Azure or Google Cloud, that is, enterprise plans.
As you have seen, Backblaze is a really interesting option to save backup copies and also store a backup of our servers or NAS.
Google One or Drive
The maximum storage size that Google One allows us is 30TB of storage for 150 euros per month. Although generally a home user does not need that much storage, and with the 2TB version it is enough, we have up to 30TB of storage at most.
Of course, in the Google One plan we have the possibility of sharing this storage space with up to 5 people, in addition, we have the VPN service.
Amazon Drive or also known as Amazon Photos is a cloud storage that allows us to save our photos and videos. If we are photography and video professionals, we are sure that you will love this service, because it will allow us to store up to 30TB of data in the cloud, although it is not cheap, since we will have to pay €3,000 per year for the service.
As you can see, Amazon Drive is clearly more expensive than Google One for equal storage, and it is worth almost twice as much.
Service pCloud It is very interesting because it allows us to buy a hard drive in the cloud, that is, we will have to pay only once for the storage space, it is not a monthly or annual payment. They have recently added the possibility of having up to 10TB of storage for only €990, however, if you already had a previous 2TB or 4TB plan, this new space will be added to the previous one, so we could have up to 12TB and even 14TB storage.
Although the initial outlay is quite important, as time goes by it becomes much better than any monthly or annual subscription service.
The popular Dropbox service allows us to have up to 3TB of storage in its professional version for individual users, the price is around €16.5 per month, and it has the typical features that you all know.
Dropbox also has plans for companies, in this case we can buy as much space as we need. In the enterprise version we have to contact them to make us a personalized offer with our needs.
As you can see, Dropbox also has higher plans than usual, but we don’t know the prices unless we contact them.
In the case of Microsoft, we have up to 6TB of storage (1TB per person) in the Microsoft 365 Family account. Here it includes Office and other services, in the case of wanting only storage with OneDrive the price is €20 for 100GB only.
As you can see, we have several storage services that will provide us with a large space in the Cloud. Depending on our needs and additional services, we can choose one option or another.
