Dropbox is a fine option for cloud-based storage and we certainly think it’s the right choice for small businesses out there. Dropbox gets credit for being the first of its kind. But today this clever software has many competitors. And as with all good business, when there’s competition, there’s the ability to shop around.
Lawyerist.com recently reviewed a few Dropbox alternatives for small and solo firms. Here’s a summary of what they had to say about three.
Option 1: SpiderOak
What You Get & What it Costs: 2 GB of storage for free, 100 GB of storage for $10/month or $100/year.
Who Should Use it: Those who want even more security than Dropbox can offer
Option 2: Cubby
What You Get & What it Costs: 5 GB of storage for free, 100 GB of storage for $4-$7/month
Who Should Use it: Those who like LogMeIn, since it’s part of the same company, those who like to share a lot of large files
Option 3: MEGA
What You Get & What it Costs: 50 GB of storage for free, 500 GB of storage for 10 Euro/month or 4 TB of storage for 30 Euro/month
Who Should Use it: Those who want end-to-end encryption. But users should know that this New Zealand-based company is run by a hacker, Kim Dotcom, who is currently up on legal charges.
