Amazon brings unlimited storage plans to the cloud

Microsoft lifts 2GB file size limit for some OneDrive users

The business of cloud storage is a popular one these days, with big players like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Dropbox and countless others in the game. In order to compete it takes a combination of features and pricing, both options that big players can more easily provide. Now Amazon is taking its offering up a notch with "unlimited" storage and reasonable prices.

Unlimited storage isn't free, but it's fairly reasonable. Expect to pay $11.99 per year for photos (free if you're a Prime subscriber) and $59.99 for everything -- photos, music, files and more.

"Most people have a lifetime of birthdays, vacations, holidays, and everyday moments stored across numerous devices. And, they don’t know how many gigabytes of storage they need to back all of them up”, says Josh Petersen, Director of Amazon Cloud Drive. “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".

The service is open immediately, so you can access it right this very minute. You'll also score a free three month trial if you sign up now. "To learn more about Amazon Cloud Drive and the Unlimited Cloud Storage plans, please visit http://amazon.com/clouddrive".
