Sync.com Review

What's not to love? A great service

Without a doubt Cloudwards.net's favorite storage provider, Sync.com offers ease of use, speed and security at a reasonable price. It also has a nice free plan you can use to test it, and comes out of the box with zero-knowledge encryption included. Read all the details in our full Sync.com review.

Good Cloud Storage

Cloud storage providers with very little to complain about.

pCloud Review

A very secure and private provider.

pCloud is a secure and easy-to-use service that lets you store up to 10GB for free, offers lifetime plans for up to 2TB and generally will make storing files easier than most of the competition. Though it's not completely without its flaws, we won't hesitate to recommend it to most people.

Microsoft Azure Review

A solid IaaS provider.

Probably one of the most popular IaaS providers out there, Microsoft Azure offers competitive pricing and fast speeds, as well as integration with a host of third-party transfer software. Read our full Microsoft Azure review for the complete picture.

OneDrive Review

A good, fast service that drops a few balls.

OneDrive is Microsoft's entry into the big, bad world of cloud storage, and the behemoth from Redmond has gone in with guns blazing. Offering integration with Office as well as many other apps, plus a decent pricing plan, it seems very little stands in OneDrive's way. Or does it?

Storage Made Easy Review

A cool service that lets you pick where to store files.

Storage Made Easy let's you choose how to store files and with whom, an interesting new take on cloud storage. Though it's not without its faults, storage nerds (we don't judge) will probably love SME, even just to make life a little easier for themselves. Read our full Storage Made Easy review for

Amazon Glacier Review

Good cold storage with some hurdles.

With confusing pricing and an odd settings system, Amazon Glacier may at first not seem like a very good IaaS provider. Once you get past these hurdles, though, you'll find it may be one of the best cold storage providers out there. Read our full Amazon Glacier review to find out why.

Amazon S3 Review

A good IaaS provider.

The most popular IaaS service out there, Amazon S3 offers good infrastructure, good speeds, but a murky pricing structure. Check out our likes and dislikes about this file host in our Amazon S3 review.

OK Cloud Storage

Decent, but with small caveats not found in our top picks.

Tresorit Review

Bit pricey, but otherwise an excellent service

A solid and highly secure storage provider, Tresorit may be too expensive for the average user.

Dropbox Review

The grandaddy of cloud storage may be falling behind.

The service that made cloud storage pretty much, Dropbox still hasn't fallen victim to the usual trap for trailblazers, offering speed and ease of use. Its security leaves much to be desired, still, though, and it's a bit too cozy with Big Brother if you ask us. Read our Dropbox review for the detai

Google Cloud Review

A lot of pros make for an intriguing IaaS provider.

Google Cloud is an IaaS provider that builds on one of the most robust existing networks out there. Though it's not without its fault, it does deserve consideration if you're shopping for infrastructure. Read our Google Cloud review if you want to know why.

Backblaze B2 Review

Affordable and easy to use.

Backblaze B2 may be the most affordable and easy to use IaaS provider on the market today. However, a limited server network and a few other, minor issues keep it from a perfect score. Check out our full review to help you decide if Backblaze B2 is the way to go for you.

Google Drive Review

A great collaboration tool that is lacking in other areas.

Google Drive is probably one of the best cloud collaboration tools out there, but is lacking when it comes to syncing features, security and backup options.

Amazon Cloud Drive Review

A massive improvement compared to earlier versions, Amazon Drive has a few too many problems to be considered a truly good cloud storage provider.

MEGA Review

Less free than it seems, but good security.

MEGA is an interesting cloud storage service that has been through a lot of changes. In its current incarnation it's as secure as it always was, but has shrunk its allotment of free storage space; sharing has improved, but could be better, still. Read on for the full MEGA review.

An interesting service that will find a limited audience.

The only unlimited cloud storage provider out there, OpenDrive's appeal will be limited to people willing to deal with its odd pricing scheme and outdated interface.

Rackspace Cloud Files Review

A good, but very expensive service.

Though Rackspace Cloud Files is an excellent provider, its services come at a premium: it is by far the most expensive IaaS provider out there. Read the full breakdown of its pricing structure in our Rackspace review and likely join us in concluding you may want to shop around a bit more.

Not recommended

Try to stay away from these unless you really have to use one of them.

Yandex Disk Review

Security issues mar this otherwise decent service.

An opaque service that may or may not encrypt your files, Russia-based Yandex Disk is probably not the provider for you, despite having some nifty features.

Bitcasa Review

Good idea turned bad, and now defunct.

Bitcasa started as an infinite cloud storage service, back paddled, cut service plans down, increased prices. Lots of customer complaints. Overall, not recommended.

hubiC Review

This service is now mercifully defunct.
