Amazon Launches Unlimited Cloud Drive Storage Plans

Amazon Cloud Drive gains Unlimited Everything Plan for $59.99 per year.

For those who just want to back up photos, Amazon on Thursday launched a new unlimited photos plan, which lets you store an infinite number of snaps in Cloud Drive for $11.99 a year, or less than $1 a month. The cloud storage wars have been heating up lately, with competitors like Google Drive and Dropbox tweaking their plans and launching offers like 1TB for $9.99 per month.Following a move to give unlimited cloud storage to Amazon Prime customers the company has now announced unlimited cloud storage plans for its Amazon Cloud Drive service.

There are two plans as part of the offer: a just-photos plan, which will cost $19.99 for the entire year, and an “Anything at all” plan for $59.99 a 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. Don’t forget, if you’re a Prime subscriber, you already get unlimited photos, but you won’t get any discounts or anything if you want to move up to the “everything” plan.

Box, which recently went public, had last year announced that it would remove storage limits for enterprise users of the popular storage suite, with Microsoft following suit with its Unlimited OneDrive storage offering soon after. The idea here is to tap into the average consumer who has started to reach a tipping point with the amount of digital media he or she now owns, potentially across a range of devices and in not a very organised fashion (hello, me). “Most people have a lifetime of birthdays, vacations, holidays, and everyday moments stored across numerous devices. Prime members and Fire device owners, by the way, can still get the unlimited photo option free, but have to pay for the Unlimited Everything Plan for other kinds of media.
