Amazon is offering an unlimited cloud storage offer for $5 as a black Friday deal. This limited period offer is just limited till Monday next week and after the said period; the company will roll back to original $60/ year for offering unlimited cloud storage.
The deal might attract Microsoft OneDrive users whose “unlimited storage” scheme to Office 365 subscribers was rolled back to 1TB storage last month.
Coming to the ongoing competition, Google Drives offers up to 15GB free storage and charges $99 for 1TB per year. OneDrive of Microsoft also offers such facility for a same price. Dropbox is yet to offer something attractive to hold its cloud storage customer base.
So, if you have a massive collection of files, then Amazon’s unlimited storage offer for just $5/year is extremely attractive. The point to be noted over here is that customers grabbing this offer should know the fact that after the completion of one year in this deal, users will again need to spend $60/Year.
Also, there is no guarantee that the said cloud storage company will keep its word intact in future. The best instance is Microsoft’s unlimited cloud storage offer to Office 365 users which was withdrawn in October this year.
