Amazon Launches New Cloud Drive Options Including Unlimited Storage Options

March 26, 2015 - Written By Nick Sutrich

When it comes to cloud storage solutions there’s certainly no shortage of places to turn to on the Internet.  Google offers plenty of storage solutions with its very own Google Drive, and of course there are some of the more original players on the market like Dropbox, Box and tons of others.  Amazon was one of the original players in the cloud game when it launched Amazon Web Services back in 2006, and has since grown to cover the entire planet with 11 different regions of data centers.  Amazon’s biggest customers include powerhouses like Netflix Instant Video, Pinterest and even plenty of governmental affairs as well.

With all this in tow Amazon’s more consumer-related side of Amazon Web Services was a bit later to the game than some other solutions, launching in 2011 as Amazon Cloud Drive.  Last year Amazon made some big expansions with Cloud Drive including giving unlimited photo storage for life to owners of Amazon’s then-new Fire Phone.  While the Fire Phone didn’t exactly catch fire as Amazon intended, Cloud Services is here to stay and is getting better than ever with today’s announcement.  Customers looking to use Amazon’s safe and fast services for all their photo storage needs can now get an unlimited photos plan for free for 3 months, followed by a small annual price of $11.99 per year.  That’s about $1 per month for unlimited storage of all your photos at full size, no matter if they were taken an hour ago or 40 years ago.  This plan includes 5GB of additional cloud storage data for other miscellaneous types of files.

Users who are sick of swapping SD cards and always buying new external hard drives to store their stuff can be rest assured that their data is safe with Amazon’s new unlimited everything plan.  Like with the unlimited photos plan there’s a 3-month free trial followed by a $59.99 per year pricing plan which puts this at around $5 per month.  This includes absolutely unlimited storage for any type of file that you could ever want to put on Amazon’s servers, and it’s guaranteed to be available when you need it quickly. Existing customers can change their storage options to fit their needs on the Cloud Drive page, and new users can sign up at the Cloud Drive link below.
