Cloud Storage for Photos - What do you use?


Recommended Posts

You can use media server and you save your photos/videos on it and share them across the network with the rest of computers/devices...

Yeah thats what I kinda do for the moment, save on to PC and external hard drive. For some reason that does not give me peace of mind though.

Yeah I agree, Flickr is more of a host and keep then access and download type thing and isn't really in the same place as Dropbox.

One thing I can suggest for the linking issue is this; http://flickr.argote.mx/. One of the users here wrote it and is quite handy for getting links.

 

If it is only 25GB then I would recommend Mega, they don't have a desktop sync app but there is a smartphone app that you can use to browse the content and its free for 50GB storage.

 

Thanks.  I think I'll give Mega a try.

I don't have any real need to keep photos in the cloud, but for the few files I do keep online, I use SpiderOak, since it's free and at least tries to be secure.

 

I don't need anyone analyzing my files for "unacceptable" content, thank you.

I used to agree with this.  However, after having my phone stolen last year with photos of my dog in the last few weeks he was alive...let's just say I had to re-evaluate that line of thinking. ;)

 

This allows me to not have to worry about losing photos ever again.

Apparently I received the bulk of my storage space from a Samsung promotion. All I did was link my account onto my Samsung Galaxy tablet. It was only one tablet, which is weird that it's showing 2 instances. :/

Edit: The sad part is I only have 272 MB used and will probably never use the rest. :)

 

At least there is a reasonable explanation.  I was scratching my head when reading your initial posts.  I only have 13.5GB of free storage.  Wish they would drop their prices.  IMO, 100GB/year of cloud storage should only run about $40.

I don't use any service because my local files are already accessible from anywhere via VPN and I have plenty of local storage. No interest at all in using any third party service.

I use Skydrive. It gives me 45gb of storage with Office 365 + the 25 gb they used to give.

I use Bit Torrent Sync and keep a copy on a relative's computer out of state.

Thanks for all the replies, everyone! They were really helpful.  (Y)

 

I decided to go with purchasing an additional 50GB from Skydrive for $25. That seemed to be the cheapest option for the features I wanted. Upload/syncing speeds are not as good as I would like, but it gets the job done. Being able to access files from other PCs on the same network is pretty cool, too. 

 

I made a comparison chart of the services I was considering to help me decide, and I thought maybe it will be useful to someone else. So here it is: Cloud Storage Comparison for Photos.  :geek:

Hi,

I am using Rinocloud, it is quite scientific cloud, but really handy if you are looking for saving pictures for free.

      What's it about?
      As more organizations are shifting infrastructure and services to the cloud, more are adopting a multicloud strategy.



      But for all the benefits of a multicloud strategy, there are some challenges that come with it as well. Specifically it can be difficult to secure a multicloud strategy because of a lack of visibility across hosts and services. That makes it easier for hackers to find exploitable vulnerabilities within an organization’s infrastructure and it also makes it more difficult to meet compliance mandates.
