Amazon Goes After Dropbox, Google, Microsoft With Unlimited Cloud Drive …

Amazon Announces Unlimited Photo Storage for $12 a Year, Unlimited Everything for $60 a Year.

Gaming execs: Join 180 select leaders from King, Glu, Rovio, Unity, Facebook, and more to plan your path to global domination in 2015. The company is launching two new storage plans that will offer unlimited storage for photos for $11.99 a year and unlimited storage for everything for $59.99 a year. “Most people have a lifetime of birthdays, vacations, holidays, and everyday moments stored across numerous devices. The plans will allow you to automatically upload endless amounts of new content, in either the Unlimited Photos Plan or Unlimited Everything Plan and only pay one flat fee per year.

Unlimited Cloud Storage will let users get either unlimited photo storage or “unlimited everything” — covering all kinds of media from videos and music through to PDF documents — respectively for $11.99 or $59.99 per year. The move is a clear attempt by Amazon to compete against the likes of Dropbox, Google, Microsoft and the many more in the crowded market for cloud-based storage services.

Still, it could be nifty for serious photographers, as Prime Photos also supports many RAW files, which tend to be somewhere around 5 times larger than a JPEG of similar resolution. Dropbox, for example, offers unlimited storage as part of Dropbox for Business, Google also aims unlimited options currently at specific verticals, and Microsoft offers it for those who subscribe to Office 365. And, they don’t know how many gigabytes of storage they need to back all of them up,” said Josh Petersen, Director of Amazon Cloud Drive, in a statement. “With the two new plans we are introducing today, customers don’t need to worry about storage space–they now have an affordable, secure solution to store unlimited amounts of photos, videos, movies, music, and files in one convenient place.” It’s not clear how many customers Amazon has today for Cloud Drive, but as with other new services Amazon has launched — such as Amazon Music — it seems that the idea here is not to convert consumers already using other services, but to pick up new ones from the masses who have yet to adopt anything. Though we highly doubt anything will end up in cold storage, your documents could end up in the lukewarm medium between cold storage and in-your-face cloud storage.
